The North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has appointed three wellbeing and lifestyle coaches, including two State of Mind presenters Danny Sculthorpe and Phil Vievers alongside Amanda Devereux

They are employed to work alongside our established Occupational Health and Wellbeing Team. You can read more about Danny, Phil and Amanda.

The wellbeing and lifestyle coaches aim to improve physical wellbeing and mental resilience for everyone across our workforce. Both Danny and Phil have vast experience of supporting individuals through their work with State of Mind and hold recognised physical activity qualifications including Personal Training, and have undertaken mental health and suicide prevention courses, such as Mental Health First Aid.

Amanda is a qualified personal trainer who specialises in GP referrals, ante and postnatal exercise and has recently completed a meditation course that she can use to support people with stressful lives.

The Trust’s health and wellbeing offer is led by our Occupational Health and Wellbeing Department. The team consists of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists and counsellors, all of which have specific occupational health training and experience. The role of wellbeing and lifestyle coaches has been developed specifically to provide additional support to you.

Initially, the coaches have focused on staff considered to be ‘at risk’ following the roll out of the Covid-19 risk assessments, so additional support can be provided to keep them safe.
