About Us

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.
