STARS® Well-being offers dedicated and trusted experts who provide training, education and consultancy support through well-being strategy development. Created through personal experience and using evidence-based methods to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, Julie created STARS® Well-being with a simple yet practical approach and one goal in mind – to improve individual and corporate well-being. Focusing on how to support individuals and mentors through mental health difficulties, STARS® Well-being creates a proven positive impact by producing bespoke workshops, led by experts, supporting and teaching businesses, charities, statutory sectors and individuals how to take that step back and reflect on the how, what, where, when and why.
Did you know that according to the CIPD Health and Well-being Survey 2019, 82% of employees are not able to spot the early warning signs of mental health illness and 70% are not confident to have sensitive discussions ? This is where STARS® can really make a positive impact within your organisation.
About our Founder
A natural people person, excellent trainer, engaging speaker and a methodical but emotionally intelligent thinker, Julie is a reliable and trustworthy individual that excels when working with partners that have a force of purpose for mental health well-being.
With extensive experience in product development and project management within the private, public and voluntary sectors, a clear ability to communicate professionally throughout all levels of a business and a proven results driven drive, Julie has a string of successful roles throughout her career.
Julie is qualified at Masters Degree level, MCIPD, training, Mental Health First Aider for Adult and Youth and a Mindfulness Practitioner. This alongside her 15 years of passionately researching and working in the Mental Health sector and 10 years in a blue-chip company as an HR consultant, have supported Julie in finding her current success as the Founder & Director of STARS ® Well-being.
STARS® Well-being has been inspired by Julie’s daughter and three well-being mentors who supported her whole family on a recovery journey of mental well-being following a traumatic event. This coupled with Julie’s background in training, project management and her passion for making a positive difference in the lives of others, formed the basis of this inspirational and impactful series of workshops.
