Val ran two hour-long sessions– Alcohol Awareness and Fitness, Nutrition & Mindset - for the Risk Community’s Wellbeing programme
Val is a skilled and enthusiastic presenter and this is backed up by her extensive knowledge, qualifications and years of practical experience. The groups appreciated her honesty and willingness to share her knowledge and personal experiences.  Val also understands that whilst many of us understand what we should be doing putting it into practice in real life can be more tricky!  Val answered all our questions, including following them up in writing afterwards, and sent us away inspired to do more to look after our own wellbeing – which is even more important in these challenging times. Thanks Val – and if any of you are thinking of inviting her to run a session for you – I would say ‘Do it!’.

I have 2 FREE Employee Wellbeing Talks to help you and your organisation at this time during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Mind and body are inextricably linked. The Fitness, Nutrition, Mindset talk helps to understand why physical activity, diet and and mental wellbeing are all important to achieve both mental and physical wellbeing.

Thank you Val. It's been a really interesting and useful session. The time flew by. Thank you for taking the time out of the day to come and run this session to us. Your passion and energy is great.

Thank you Val that was really motivating especially at this time.

Thank you Val for running the session, really useful indeed, have learned lots! 

During the COVID-19 Pandemic I am offering a FREE Online Employee Wellbeing Talk on alcohol.

This isn't a talk to tell you not to drink alcohol, but rather to explain a little more about the dangers of alcohol so that you can make an informed choice about your alcohol consumption. I use my own personal story of alcohol addiction to bring to life the risks associated with consuming alcohol in the hope of educating others so that they don't come unstuck like I did.

To hear me speak on the subject, please see the appearances section.

That was incredible Val, thank you so much for sharing your story.

Thanks Val, really interesting and thank you for sharing your experience.

Thanks Val, this has opened my eyes and I will be doing more research in this subject.

I found Val’s online session for Fitness and Nutrition advertised on Facebook, it was a free class and lockdown #3 so I though what the heck I’ll give it a go!


I couldn’t have been made any more welcomed by Val and her fellow people [clients], they were all super friendly and though each had their own story, all of us shared the want to better life for ourselves.  

Val speaks so expressively, from the heart, and this is so contagious that you are instantly inspired, she is also clear and factual yet relays information in a way that is easy to install in daily living.


Eager to share Val’s enthusiasm for living well, I asked Val if she would present her Employee Wellbeing session with the Team, to help uplift spirits after a year of working from home.  Again Val was able to put her super powers into place and deliver another fantastically inspiring online session.


Thank you Val!
