Coaching and mindfulness will unite for a celebration of health and wellness

The first mini Wellbeing Festival will be held at the Naylor Leyland Center in Ruthin – home of the Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council (DVSC) – on Wednesday June 29.

Speakers include The Empowered Parent Coach and Mentor, Polly O’Leary, Sian Golding, who started the Elysian Coaching gym in Rhyl during the pandemic, and Jamie Sheridan, entrepreneur and founder of Straits Line, exploring healthcare proactive and how they can prolong professional life.

A former elementary school teacher, Polly will discuss how her outlook and career changed dramatically after the birth of her daughter, Mila.

Struggling with her own mental health, impostor syndrome and self-doubt, she has used negativity as fuel for change and now offers popular workshops and webinars, writes blogs and children’s books and organizes coaching sessions to help other moms and parents thrive and become the best. possible version of themselves.

My daughter was the catalyst for my own personal development journey, said Polly, of Dwygyfylchi, near Conwy.

I started to realize that to help him thrive in life, I was going to have to work on myself first, and things changed when I did.

I can’t wait to share my story and why I do what I do, the things I’ve learned along the way, and hopefully some tips and advice people will find helpful.

I work with mums in particular as it is my lived experience and I am passionate about the wellbeing of children, but as a mental mentor this can apply to anyone, especially parents who wish examine their own confidence and personal development.

Helping to empower them will have a huge impact on the next generation of children, so I look forward to continuing my journey and being part of the Wellbeing Festival.

Jamie, from Anglesey, also hopes to make a difference in people’s lives through his work developing the ‘Aging Curve’, a proactive health concept targeting 50-75 year olds in what is now called the Third quartile of “age 100”. life’.

I just turned 50 myself, and working in innovation and technology development with a background in healthcare, healthy aging is a really interesting field, he said.

With people living longer, it’s more important than ever to look at life past 50. How will this time be spent? In addition to the financial aspect of not working anymore, how active and healthy will you be. Do you take time for yourself, as a couple, with friends or family? It’s a great conversation to have, especially here in North Wales with so many opportunities to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Personally, I don’t like the search for “fountain of youth” medical treatments, but there have been vast technological advances and great innovations in age technology that can support and improve well-being.

I look forward to exploring this further with those present and am excited to be part of the event – hope to see you there.
