Lifestyle Awareness is an Occupational Therapy service for professionals who want to improve their mental & emotional wellbeing, resilience and unlock their potential. The focus of LifestyleAwareness is on Mental Fitness & skills development, with options for both individual and group based working. Individual clients often start with one to one working and then choose to move to the FITMINDS group program.


I have previously worked at South London & Maudsley (SLAM), Saint John of God Hospital, Saint Patrick’s Hospital. I am very grateful to have written for RTE lifestyle, appeared as a guest contributor on the TV show Operation Transformation & speak regularly on radio and media outlets.

We have tried to put as much information as possible here so please read information below if you have any question.

Q1. How much of my time do I need to allocate to FITMINDS?

A. The skills you learn in FITMINDs are functional and can be used as you go about your day. In the morning if possible we recommend about 20 minutes for a morning routine & spread anything else throughout the day! The recorded sessions are short, snappy and fun that is built around your lifestyle. You can join from any device, at any time, whether you are commuting, on the go or able to find a few minutes during the weekend.

Q2. What if I cannot join the live sessions?

Do not worry, the program is designed to be flexible. Each session is conducted live (via Zoom) and a recording of the content is made available for anyone who missed the session, or for participants to revisit the training at a later stage.

Q3. How many people are in each group session?

Group sizes are focused to ensure we give each participant the appropriate amount of time and support needed to meet their goals.

Q4. How do I monitor my performance?

At the beginning of the program, we conduct assessments across multiple areas to understand where you are at and to ensure the program is suitable. We also provide support & accountability sessions.
