How We Help

We help individuals and teams to proactively develop their mental health, wellbeing and performance. Our tailored programmes include a blend of coaching, consultancy, training and talks depending on the needs of the organisation.

For some companies, this involves helping them to design and implement the initial stages of their wellbeing strategy. For others, we provide tailored talks, courses and workshops as part of their existing wellbeing initiatives.

  • Training in Proactive Wellbeing Strategies for Individuals and Organisations
  • Tailored Mental Health and Wellbeing Courses
  • Workshops Targeting Specific Aspects of Performance and Wellbeing
  • Keynote Talks and Podcast Interviews
  • MHFA England Workplace Mental Health First Aid Courses
  • Performance Coaching for Leaders including Mindset Coaching

    The feedback given was very positive, with the course being presented in a relaxed way which encouraged participants to take part and really get involved. They found the course was very detailed and informative. One in particular described his experience as 'life changing' and felt he has come away with a whole new approach toward looking at how people behave and how he could approach colleagues if he had concerns they may be struggling with mental health issues.

    HR, Recruitment and Training
    Louise of Sky Bounders arranged and provided a highly successful series of Mental Health First Aid training sessions. She ensured that she really understood our sector, the requirements of our support consultants, and our business needs. The individual feedback from delegates was excellent, and many commented on how the training benefited them, not just in their role, but personally as well. Louise is engaging, empathetic, and keeps the energy in the training room going. First Class!​

    Director
    Louise is a first rate coach and trainer. During a 4-hour workshop, she gave practical and applicable advice and, 6 months on, I’m routinely using the tools she taught me. There’s no question that an investment in bringing Louise’s expertise into your organisation will be rewarded by enhanced team performance.
