Who We are
Wellbeing Training is a new organisation, built on strong foundations.
Set up in 2018 by Grainne O'Kane, (BSoc Sc, Hdip CYW, HDip RDS, MA Equality), we help people and professionals to address personal and social care problems.
We have the expertise to provide the education and tools to equip people to address common problem areas affecting their lives. These issues include drugs, alcohol, video gaming, gambling, eating disorders, loss/grief, stress, bullying, anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicide, separation, divorce and communication skills. We deliver evidence-based experiential learning through training and lectures.
Programmes for the Corporate Sector
We work with companies of all types and sizes to deliver training to both HR departments and directly to staff, in line with the IBEC "Keep Well Mark'.
We also provide a hands-on Employee Assistance Programme using the wellbeing life coaching model of practice.
Programmes for the Public Sector
We deliver programmes for the Healthcare and Education sectors enabling personnel to both look after those in their care, and to ensure that they also look after their own wellbeing and health. Within the healthcare sector, we also provide specific training that supports the "Make Every Contact Count" government campaign.
Our clients include government departments, schools, and multinational companies.
