Wellbeing that works!!

Change is a process – many people believe that forming good habits and transforming your life is a mysterious or magical process. It’s not. There is a system to change and underlying the system is a set of skills. This means you won’t be perfect at the start, but you will get better with practice. And once you have these skills, you can apply them to all sorts of situations.

By understanding how our habits grow and what our role is in the growth process, we can reliably design for the change – the transformation – we want in our life.

In this session you will:

  • Find ways of recognising the importance of making changes for the long term health and happiness of yourself and your employees.
  • Understand why things have gone wrong in the past
  • Learn the system to change
  • Understand human behaviour crafting
  • Create a series of micro-practices with meaning

What you’re aiming for is to create new micro-practices that start small in size but are mighty in meaning. We will find the smallest, easiest changes you can make that will have the biggest meaning to you.

Achievement is the result of a million tiny steps.

Speaker : Camille Pierson, Founder The Float Spa

How difficult is it to make changes in our lives to prioritise our own wellbeing? Personal wellbeing has slid down the priority list for many people in our modern society to our detriment. After Camille Pierson learned this fact the hard way, she changed her life to put wellbeing at the forefront of everything she does in her business as well as her personal life. After spending years as a marketing professional, Camille moved away from the corporate world to setup The Float Spa, a multi-award winning health and wellness centre offering floatation therapy, yoga classes, massage, an infrared sauna and other complementary therapies.

With the success of The Float Spa – starting from nothing and leading to a clientele of over 25,000 people. Camille has learned through running it and immersing herself in the wellbeing world, she now prioritises helping people make the changes in their life they need to be happier, healthier and more fulfilled.

Change can be hard and bad habits hard to break so Camille has trained at the College of Naturopathic Medicine as a Health Coach, in Hormone Health with Future Woman, in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Behavioural Science, Habit Coaching and Meditation to help people understand where their health is currently and to helping focus how to achieve their health, wellbeing and fitness aspirations.

She offers group workshops and one to one coaching to support her clients in making very small easy changes which add up to a huge impact on their health, fitness and happiness.
