Why 8Wise™ Programme

If you have been looking for one approach to manage your mental wellbeing, you have come to the right place. I created the 8Wise™ model so that people can develop knowledge, skills, and tools to achieve wellness and wellbeing – not just now but for the rest of their lives. It is a flexible approach that maps to you and your life.

Suffice to say I have spent a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to this point, where I feel confident in not only managing my own health and happiness, but to also have the intuition and skills to enable others to embark on this.

This is not the usual run-of-the-mill self-help book. Rather, YOU are the hero of this book, I just guide you to achieve the best of yourself. Together we will cover a range of dimensions that impact our lives and wellbeing. We will work together to nudge and tweak areas that need work, in the context of the all-important 8 wellness areas: emotional, intellectual, financial, occupational, social, environmental, physical, and spiritual. None of these is less important than the others and all of them together influence your health and happiness.
