All calm ahead with new wellbeing course in Saddleworth

ARE you looking to find better balance in your life, reduce stress or just get a good night’s sleep? Then a new ‘Calm Ahead’ course could be just the thing for you.

Saddleworth residents Jenny Eastwood and Jo Turner are passionate about mental health and emotional wellbeing and will be delivering the new classes locally. 

They are both experienced relaxation and wellbeing practitioners who originally met while working for mental health charity MIND. 

They wrote and delivered courses for both children and adults, supporting mental health and wellbeing, including mindfulness, anger management, stress, anxiety, confidence and self esteem.

Recognising the need to support the wider community and businesses, they combined their skill set and became accredited coaches so they could set up Relax Kids Oldham.

For the last 18 months they have been working in local schools, delivering relaxation and emotional wellbeing sessions for children, young people, staff and parents.

Recently they have been working on new material and have developed wellbeing and life balance courses for adults under their new brand ‘Calm Ahead’. 

They explained: “The course is aimed at anyone who would like a better balance to their life, help with stress, or just a better night’s sleep!  

“There will be tips and techniques to help become more mindful, build resilience, practice gratitude, growth mindset and much more.

“From a corporate perspective, did you know the government’s 2017 ‘Thriving at Work’ paper reported poor mental health costs employers between £33 billion and £42 billion per year?

“Calm Ahead is able to offer courses and corporate training for your employees on workplace wellbeing and work life balance.”

The first community course commences on Tuesday, September 10 at 10am-noon at the Reclamation Room, Uppermill. 

There will also be an evening community course, commencing on Wednesday, September 11 from 6pm-8pm at Scona in Greenfield. 

Both courses will run for six weeks and will cost £120 per person. The cost includes all resources and refreshments and is available to anyone over the age of 18.

If you would like to secure a place on the community courses or would like further in-formation on any of the services which they offer call Jenny Eastwood on 07810 617909 or email
