WELLNESS Workshops & Classes

Our bespoke Workshops and Classes give you the opportunity to learn innovative and evidence-based approaches to improving your overall wellbeing in an interactive group format. Each workshop is run by either our in-house qualified Practitioners or guest speakers who are often leaders in their field. You’ll not only walk away with a wealth of information and practical advice, but often take-home booklets, activities you can complete at a time that suits you and resources that will support your ongoing success. You’ll also get a chance to ask questions and book further one-on-one sessions if you wish.

From $10 per person

Unlike so many other ‘wellness’ organisations, our workshops and classes are not designed to sell you a product or sign you up to a pyramid scheme that promises you the world but in reality, delivers anything but. Instead, we offer no fuss, no fad advice that tackles some of life’s most frustrating dilemma’s like how to truly break free of yo-yo dieting, or how to find a movement program that you love, is easy to do and doesn’t break the bank.

Recent workshops have included:

  • How To Break The Diet Cycle: Freeing yourself from yo-yo dieting for good

  • What To Do After You’ve Finished A Fitness Challenge: aimed at minimising bounce-back after completing an 8 or 12 week program

  • Self-Care: simple strategies for looking after your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing

  • Habit formation: the secret to creating long-term success in every aspect of life

  • Higher Brain vs Lower Brain: what you need to know to finally take control of your thoughts and actions

  • The Addictive Personality: how to overcome addictive behaviours

  • Sleep Health: getting the best night’s rest possible

  • Blue Light Technology & The Modern Man: how blue light exposure can alter our brain and affect our behaviour

The last ten years has seen a surge in the popularity of work-based health and wellbeing programs in Australia, with employers becoming increasingly aware of the costly burden (absenteeism, impaired cognitive functioning, higher accident rates) associated with high levels of stress and poor health in the workplace. The Wellness Workshop’s effective wellness programs consider all facets of health including physical, mental and emotional health, providing your team with easy to adopt behaviours they can start implementing from day 1.

Created by our Accredited and Allied Health Practitioners, we work closely with your organisation to understand which areas of wellness are most important to you/your organisation based on the following factors:

  • Environment (office building, school, hospitality…etc)

  • Team Dynamic (number of employees/participants, hierarchical or decentralised)

  • Industry (professional, construction, services based…etc)

  • Challenges (time management, communication, teamwork)

Programs can either be delivered via a series of live workshops or handed over to a Wellbeing Coordinator or HR representative to roll out as they see fit. We can also work closely with you to monitor and measure the efficacy of your wellness program, as well as provide progress reports to demonstrate areas in need of improvement or attention.

WELLNESS COACHING

Do you ‘know’ better, but don’t ‘do’ better? Let our expert Wellness Coach help you bridge the gap between saying what you want to do, and actually doing it.

$55-$110

Wellness Coaching combines concepts born out of Positive Psychology and Behavioural Change Theories to empower you to identify what you want, why you want it and exactly how to go about achieving it.

 

Through the support and guidance of our Accredited Wellness Coach, we help you overcome internal resistance to change by using a step by step, structured approach that focuses on taking action, rather than just prescribing action.

We guide you in making better everyday choices that fit your unique lifestyle to:

  • Repair your relationship with food & your body

  • Manage stress effectively & develop healthy coping mechanisms

  • Improve work-life balance and enhance your career

  • Reduce anxiety and improve mental health, resilience and happiness

  • Navigate difficult/challenging personal or professional relationships

Wellness coaching clients walk away feeling more empowered, more accountable and more confident to optimise opportunities that align with their self- determined goals, values and beliefs, as well as overcome mental barriers that previously may have stood in the way of their success.

 

INTUITIVE EATING PROGRAM

Free yourself from dieting and emotional eating with the Intuitive Eating Program – the globally proven, non-diet approach that will give you back your life...and your sanity! ​

$55-$110

Feel like you’ve tried every diet & ‘lifestyle program’ out there but still feel overwhelmed by guilt, stress and lack of control?

 

Derived from 10 core principles, the Intuitive Eating Program will revolutionise the way you think, feel and act around food. Using a scientifically proven step-by-step program, we will help you reconnect with your system’s natural ability to regulate eating, while nurturing and healing your relationship with food, and your body.

 

You will no longer need to rely on strict meal plans, calorie counting or obsessive rules to dictate choices, allowing you to finally free yourself from yo-yo dieting and the restriction/binge-eating cycle.

 

The program is proven to improve self-esteem and body image, stabilise weight, enhance satisfaction and wellbeing, and teach you proactive coping skills you’ll with you carry for life.

 

DIETETICS & NUTRITION

Confused by all the conflicting information out there about what to eat, how to eat, when to eat...particularly if you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic illness/disease? Sitting down with our Accredited Practicing Dietitian can help you sort out the fact from the fiction!

$60-$90

It appears that everyone has an opinion when it comes to diet and nutrition these days, so make sure you get the right advice specific to your lifestyle and needs by booking an appointment with one of our Accredited Practising Dietitians.

 

Unlike Nutritionists, our Dietitians are university qualified and have spent a considerable amount of time in hospitals and private practice, while being involved in the research, development and preparation of food. *Did you know Nutritionists don't actually require any formal training in Australia, and are not allowed to give medical advice?

  • Health At Every Size (HAES) & Non-Diet Approach

  • Meeting individual requirements for vitamins, minerals & nutrients​

  • Optimising sports performance​

  • Eating Disorders and eating related issues

  • Managing food allergies or intolerances​

  • Controlling diabetes​

  • Lowering blood pressure or cholesterol​

  • Controlling/managing chronic disease/illness​

  • Reading food labels and selecting the right choice for you​

  • Food and nutrient education

  • Evidence based programs (no fads or celebrity endorsed programs here!)

 

*Ask us if you’re eligible for Medicare and/or private health rebates

 
 

MEDITATION & MINDFULNESS CLASSES

Let our Meditation Teacher Belinda who has over 20 years’ experience, help you reap the rewards of this century old practice. Enquire about a one-on-one session or group class now.

From $10 per person

Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts. You can use it to increase awareness of yourself and your surroundings. Many people think of it as a way to reduce stress and develop concentration. People also use the practice to develop other beneficial habits and feelings, such as a positive mood and outlook, self-discipline, healthy sleep patterns and even increased pain tolerance.

Meditation is also a fantastic tool for those looking to manage and reduce stress without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. It can help regulate moods, improve heart health and even boost the body’s immune system. It’s also easy to implement at any point of the day and in any location, and can be particularly useful for persons of any age (including children) who struggle with overwhelming thoughts or anxiety during exams, social situations and/or sport or musical performance.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

How long have you been telling yourself you’ll get over that addiction or phobia?? We know a far more effective way…

$119-$199

Long gone are the days when ‘hypnosis’ meant sitting alongside a group of strangers and clucking like a chicken in front of a laughing crowd.

 

These days it’s more likely you heard about Clinical Hypnotherapy through a friend who used it to give up smoking, get over their fear of flying, or spiders, or even balloons.

 

During clinical hypnotherapy, you are fully conscious, in total control and in fact experiencing higher than normal brain activity. It’s a perfectly natural and safe therapy proven to assist in the management of phobias, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, eating issues and much more.

 

Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with all of our services, and teaches you mental tools and techniques to deal with ongoing triggers, destructive thinking and harmful behaviours.

 

If you are someone who is opposed to pharmaceutical drug intervention, hypnotherapy can also provide an alternative pathway for dealing with certain thoughts and emotions otherwise regulated by medication.
