a bit about me:
My name is Lisa and I have founded Create Well Lives to offer straight forward advice, support and guidance to help create emotional balance in the lives of individuals, young and old, to empower and enjoy a better life balance.
Who am I? Well, I will use a few words that others say describe me well; ‘honest’, ‘transparent’, ‘passionate’, ‘punk spirited’, ‘straight talker’, ‘positive’, ‘generous of spirit’, ‘dog lover’, ‘a reader’, ‘a thinker’, ‘a coffee drinker’!
I am also a parent to a teen. A mentor, a coach, a current practitioner working with adults and young people, bereavement counsellor, an advocate of self-care and promoter of good mental health strategies.
I am on a mission to share my knowledge and tools and equip young people and adults with the wherewithal they need to survive in this mad world we live in.
I would encourage you to contact me for a no obligation chat to see if I can impart my knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to help you better support yourself and those around you and in so doing create a more fulfilling life.
CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES
As a current practitioner within the third sector, I have over ten year’s experience of supporting young people’s emotional well-being, offering 121 support, facilitating groups and delivering high quality training.
So, what inspires me? The world we live in is stressful and unrelenting at times and young people are less resilient than those of my generation. They are less able to cope when things go wrong and use risky behaviour to manage difficult feelings and pressures. I work with young people to identify strengths and focus on how they can build on these to become resilient and confident individuals.
IN THE WORKPLACE
My insights into large organisations show that the modern workforce is stressed, lacks motivation and experiencing high levels of sickness absence. Employees do not cope well with change in a time that organisations need to evolve and diversify to keep businesses competitive. I am currently working on a development project within the NSPCC to manage change to meet the evolving needs of service users. Blending my background in mental health alongside other disciplines, I could also be a welcoming face in your organisation, working with the whole team, to create harmony and bring everyone on board, building resilience and strategies for success.
