What’s Fresh Air Fridays Wellbeing for You programme?

This 12-week programme will teach you simple tools and techniques that are proven to support mental and emotional wellbeing. All our work is done outside – we really do take you outside so you feel good on the inside!

We’ve been running this programme in organisations for several years and continue to be blown away by the changes people experience in just 12 weeks. Following a pilot programme in Cardiff that has seen similar success for individuals, we’re now delighted to be bringing our 12-week programme to the lovely people of Bristol for the first time.

The group will be no more than 12 people, creating a safe space to explore. Each session has a different theme, enabling you to look at different aspects of your life and, if you choose to do so, make changes that will have you creating a life you truly love.

Why would you come?

Are you feeling stressed? Too busy? Overwhelmed? Maybe you’re stuck in a rut and looking for inspiration? Or aware you want to improve your wellbeing but not sure how?

However you’re feeling, our programme can help. Exploring different areas of your work and life in a small group of like-minded people, led by an expert facilitator, can have a transformational impact on your life – enabling you to really live a life you love.

People who have been on the programme tell us they are:

  • better able to cope with stressful situations
  • able to think more clearly
  • gaining new perspectives
  • more open-minded and less judgemental
  • happier in their relationships

One recent participant said:

“During the Fresh Air Fridays sessions I learned some extremely valuable skills which have changed my daily life for the better! 
I learned some fantastic gratitude practices and meditation techniques that I use every day, as well as examining my habits (both good and bad) and making decisions to change these to live a more fulfilling life.
The facilitator’s style is relaxed, kind and doesn’t force you to believe anything, instead she’s encouraging, informative and allows you to make your own decisions about what works best for you.”
