Ad­dress­ing your well­be­ing can be a com­pli­cated mat­ter. Es­tab­lish­ing where you are and where you want to be can be the first step to­wards a bet­ter life­style

Well­be­ing, whether it is phys­i­cal or psy­cho­log­i­cal, has gained promi­nence in mod­ern times due to our hec­tic lives. It can be a com­pli­cated sub­ject as so many fac­tors in our lives can con­trib­ute to our over­all well­be­ing. How­ever, the pos­i­tive way of look­ing at this is that there are so many op­por­tu­ni­ties to make small changes in our life­styles, habits and mind­set that can con­trib­ute to an im­prove­ment in our over­all con­di­tion.

Iden­ti­fy­ing your is­sues, whether they are stress-re­lated, linked to anx­i­ety or gen­eral low­mood can be hard and there­fore dif­fi­cult to ad­dress. Poor diet, a lack of ex­er­cise, a stress­ful ca­reer and hec­tic work­life or re­la­tion­ship is­sues can all have a con­tribut­ing fac­tor to your well­be­ing. The an­swer could be seek­ing the help of a life­style coach.

The Well Nest in Whal­ley was founded in au­tumn 2018, by Sara De­whurst who has a back­ground in health psy­chol­ogy and set up

the cen­tre with the aim of help­ing peo­ple from all back­grounds with a one-to-one ser­vice that can ad­dress a va­ri­ety of is­sues and help them achieve a health­ier life­style.

The ob­jec­tive is to en­cour­age peo­ple to make healthy life­style changes and this is achieved through a be­spoke well­be­ing sup­port pro­gramme that is tai­lored to­wards ev­ery client’s needs through the use of cog­ni­tive be­havioural ther­apy, mind­ful­ness and set­ting per­sonal goals and tar­gets.

The ini­tial ses­sions in­volve learn­ing about your back­ground and cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and then es­tab­lish­ing where you are in your life, where you want to be and how you can achieve this through the changes you make that will ul­ti­mately ini­ti­ate per­sonal devel­op­ment, both psy­cho­log­i­cally and phys­i­cally.

Al­though peo­ple may be keen to make changes for the bet­ter, there are many bar­ri­ers that may pre­vent them from do­ing so. One com­mon bar­rier is a busy life which pre­vents peo­ple from even seek­ing as­sis­tance in the first place.

Sara has ad­dressed this by giv­ing her clients the op­tion of con­duct­ing their one-to-one coun­selling ses­sions face-to-face in her con­sul­ta­tion room in Whal­ley or ei­ther on­line or over the phone, all of which main­tain the strict con­fi­den­tial­ity you would ex­pect.

It is of­ten said that a healthy body promotes a healthy mind and The Well Nest is based within PLM Health and Fit­ness which means you can look af­ter the phys­i­cal as­pect of your well­be­ing as well as the psy­cho­log­i­cal side.

Sara of­fers a gym buddy ser­vice that pro­vides sup­port in tak­ing up phys­i­cal train­ing and help clients at­tain the self­con­fi­dence and mo­ti­va­tion to take up ex­er­cise which is an­other vi­tal fac­tor in im­prov­ing your well­be­ing.

The team at PLM Health and Fit­ness can of­fer di­etary ad­vice and phys­i­cal train­ing ex­per­tise and the added bonus is that the fa­cil­i­ties have low-level light­ing and do not con­tain any de­pic­tions as­so­ci­ated with body im­age, so you can train freely with­out feel­ing self-con­scious.

The success of The Well

Nest has also en­cour­aged Sara to branch out to pro­vide her ser­vices to com­pa­nies who wish to pro­mote well­be­ing within their work­force.
