Creating a positive ripple of wellness in your life, your workplace and your world.

Health and wellbeing affects all areas of our lives. How we experience life at home and at work. We can’t put our physical and emotional troubles on hold when we walk into work. And it’s important to learn to leave the emotions of the workday behind us as we go home.

Achieving a balance that encourages wellness at home and at work means we’re happier, more engaged, and able to do what we want to do. In the workplace and with our whanau, family and friends.

Hi, I'm Lauren.

I make it simple for busy people to boost their energy, vitality and productivity and help businesses create a healthy, positive, energised workplace where their staff and organisation can thrive.

More and more businesses are realising that poor staff wellbeing, low engagement, absenteeism and high staff turnover are affecting corporate success.

I help HR and leadership teams feel confident their organisation is doing all they can to help their business thrive by creating tailored, science-based, practical workplace wellness programmes, and supporting the team as they implement the plan.

But it’s not just about creating a great place to work. It’s about thriving at home too.

My mission is to equip and inspire you to truly boost your health and happiness. Creating a positive ripple in your life, your workplace and your world.

My background in wellness and coaching, combined with a degree in business has given me an incredible insight to help you thrive at home and at work, and help organisations achieve success by creating a workplace culture that supports positive, healthy and energised staff.
