Who are we?

Chris Gaylon – Wellness Coach

“My favourite pillar of wellbeing is movement. I swim three times a week and enjoy walking everyday which keeps my body fit and my mind healthy. I believe movement is essential for good wellbeing. My other favourite is giving. My job involves giving my time by listening and supporting people, and it’s very rewarding. It makes Wellness with a Goal a great place to work.”

Paul Graham – IT Analyst and Community Partner Manager

“I love working at Wellness with a Goal as I feel that both directly and indirectly I make a difference to people’s lives for the better. Having worked in more ‘commercial’ places I would really miss this aspect of feeling good about what I do for a living if I went back to my ‘career’ job.”

Toni Breen – Support Worker

“My favourite pillar is mindfulness – I practise this using Headspace, adult 1000 dot, dot to dot and Querkles colouring!”

Cathy Edwards – Support Worker

“I have enjoyed working for Wellness with a Goal for the past 15 years. I love helping people to belong again in the community. It is a very caring organisation as we have understanding and compassion for all.”

Ellie Gannon – Accounts and Admin Worker

“I love working at Wellness with a Goal because it is nice to see the difference that we make to our client’s daily lives. The understanding and supportive environment encourages people to expand their experiences and social interactions. This makes it a very rewarding place to work.”

Clare Young – Anxiety Support Group Facilitator Volunteer

“My favourite wellbeing books are ‘CBT for Dummies’ and ‘The Mindfulness Workbook’. The first represents my first tentative steps in managing my mental health and the second represents how far I’ve come.

I have been a client of Wellness with a Goal for 4 years now and I love running the Anxiety Support Group because I get to be right at the heart of peer support in action. We can go so far with the non-judgemental encouragement found in the clients of Wellness with a Goal. For me, I found a safe space and made friends for life when I attended my first Wellness with a Goal activities (and an addiction to tea!). Now I get to keep that support going and strengthen it by sharing my own experiences. So I guess my favourite pillar of wellbeing is people :)….. and mindfulness!”
