The 'Science of Wellness'
Life can be hard. Work can be stressful. Work-life balance can be hard. Over the last year or so we have all suffered in one way or another at the hands of Covid-19 and even though we might be experiencing somewhat of a reprieve it doesn't necessarily mean that we are feeling good about ourselves or about life.
David Brown, scientist-turned-life-coach will spend 30 minutes over lunchtime helping us with strategies for coping.
In the second webinar in this series, David will talk us through how to say 'no' with more confidence. Do join us - it might just be the best 30 minute break you've taken.
David's Story
My journey begins with experiencing emotional neglect as a child, my parents separated when I was a baby, and they were emotionally unavailable for me. I was a quiet, shy child, and very emotionally withdrawn.
When I was 11 my elder brother took his own life. That was a catalyst for change, but it took about 30 years to get there.
My career started out in the science field. I have a master’s and bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and worked at the University of Cambridge researching neuroscience.
For 30 years I have been learning and teaching martial arts, Japanese sword, and adopting a zen philosophy – which influence my work as a coach – supporting people to be clear about their values, adopt boundaries and live life in a way that feels meaningful.
