Empowerment & Wellbeing Workshops

Our workshops are designed to empower and improve the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing of individuals so that they can thrive both in the workplace and where they live.


What problems or needs are they designed to address?


Our Empowerment and Wellbeing workshops are aimed at introducing the PERMA model of Positive Psychology to individuals across South Wales, whether in the workplace or where they live in their local communities.


We address issues, such as

  • isolation & loneliness through our Friendship Friday workshops.
  • low self-esteem and poor self-image through our Self-love workshops
  • low confidence through our Building Self-Confidence workshops
  • anxiety and depression (non-clinical) through our Minimising Anxiety & Depression workshops
  • disempowerment through our Envisioning and Goal-mapping workshops
  • Carer’s compassion fatigue and secondary trauma through our CALM for carers workshops (for unpaid, independent carers) and The Care Home Happiness & Wellbeing Project for staff in care homes
  • low motivation and mood through our Living a More Joyful Life and our Alive to Thrive workshops
  • menopause symptom and distress relief through our Menopause Wellbeing in Action workshops
  • parenting skills and guidance with our Positive Psychology for Parents workshop (content can also be tweaked for schools to support educators)
  • past trauma release through our Power of Forgiveness workshops
  • scarcity mindset reset through our Attitude of Gratitude workshops
  • stagnation in life through our Science of Manifestation workshops

All these workshops are holistic in nature and look at the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Soup4TheSoul Workshop Series


This started out as a warming space idea, but it became so popular that we have made it a core feature of our workshop series. Essentially we offer a 90 minute workshop per topic of choice that includes not just the workshop content, but an optional therapeutic mandala colouring exercise and a meditation to finish. You can either book these as a one-off or pick and mix between topics and create a mini series. Alternatively book them all. We’re happy to offer greater discounts the more you choose.

If you’re not someone who’s looking to host these, but an individual wishing to attend, then please check out our events page to see what, where and when the next set of workshops are running. These will either be free to attend or carry a small contribution to support running costs. Any and all profits are reinvested to support further wellbeing initiatives. If you don’t see one you’re interested in in the events section, please complete the form and we’ll put you on the VIP list and subject to sufficient demand, we’ll put this on for you.

Building Self-Confidence Workshop

An empowerment workshop, defining multiple strategies and tips for boosting self-confidence. Self-confidence is important for goal setting and achievement, for building great relationships, for managing stress and for taking considered risks to foster personal and professional growth.

I enjoyed learning some strategies, how to help me be more confident and just being in other people’s company. (Oakdale event)

The Power of Forgiveness

An empowerment and wellbeing workshop on forgiveness. During this workshop, we teach that forgiveness is an act of releasing and healing – letting go of what does not serve us. Studies have shown that forgiveness can improve mental health, reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, and lead to healthier relationships. Forgiveness opens up the path to an expanded future, when we learn to let go of the chains of the past.

Thought-provoking. Will need to reflect on this. (Oakdale)

The Care Home Happiness & Wellbeing Project

The Care Home Happiness & Wellbeing Project aims to boost happiness and wellbeing for staff and residents through the use of Positive Psychology strategies. A three-year study found that when work is meaningful, performance improves by 33%, leading to increased productivity. The project provides face-to-face consultations and tools to help create a care home culture that fosters happiness and wellbeing. Monthly sessions based on happiness or positivity themes are provided to encourage happiness habits for staff, residents, families, and volunteers. Accredited membership is available for care homes committed to fostering happiness and wellbeing.

CALM for Carers

CALM for Carers is a project that aims to boost the happiness and wellbeing of informal carers, who often experience a complex burden of care that can be overwhelming without proper support.

By encouraging carers to use strategies to develop resilience in their caring roles, CALM aims to make caring more enjoyable and meaningful. Members of CALM will benefit from face-to-face consultations and group attendance to learn tools and strategies to cope better with their carer role and experience increased personal well-being. CALM also promotes a monthly happiness or positivity theme and inclusive social and learning events, which encourages regular happiness habits.

CALM embraces scientific strategies like the Positive Psychology PERMA model of well-being, which has been proven to lead to a happier, more fulfilled life. By focusing on boosting happiness and wellbeing in carers, CALM is aimed at increasing personal satisfaction and strengthening care arrangements for the community.
