Job Title:
Founder & CEO
Mind Health and Wellbeing Limited

Christine has a passion for finding ways to lower the levels of anxiety and stress suffered by students, having personally experienced the impact that the stress of education can have on health with her own daughter. She believes in prevention and finding ways to reach a balance between education and health to avoid suffering from burnout. Christine’s interest in reducing stress for students has also led her into expanding her support into helping and encouraging others who work in some of the most stressful sectors. 

Sharing tools and techniques, insights, and knowledge to help reduce anxiety and stress, Christine is encouraging everyone to build their own personal resilience tool kit. With those tools being specific to their own personal needs. 

Helping people to feel more able and more confident in going some way to supporting their own mental health needs whilst going through life’s inevitable ups and downs, Christine has created and developed a series of talks and workshops to share the importance of taking your own self-care seriously. She has been a speaker on webinars for online conference events for raising awareness and supporting NHS staff and other medical professionals primarily in the pharmaceutical sector for the need to put their own self-care back in the frame and to take their health and wellbeing seriously. 

Christine has previously worked for the NHS in the Women and Children’s Directorate as the Medical Workforce Officer supporting both obstetrics & gynaecology and paediatrics. Later working in CAMHS and then in the Executive Directorate as the Compliance & Corporate Support Officer. This role involved working with the Clinical Management Team, the Hospital Management Committee, and the Board of Governors. 

Christine has been a lifelong learner and a researcher through her love of books, adding to her life experiences. Further supporting as a Mental Health First Aider and Wellbeing Champion in her daily life. As a mental health and wellbeing advocate, Christine has also created a de-stress tool for students and others to use as a coping mechanism, providing a safe space to write out your thoughts, feelings and process your emotions, reducing anxiety and stress.

Please do pop in, say hello and make sure you are all set for the day.

On the day, when registration starts, you will be able to join the conference by initially entering a waiting room when there may be a short wait. In groups of between 6-10 people, you will be admitted into the main conference room to be greeted by a member of SBK staff. In the same group you will be taken into a breakout room and asked to turn on your video and microphone. A member of the SBK team will get your group started with some orientation tasks and ‘ice breaker’ topics, before leaving you to network.

When you are automatically brought back into the conference room for the start of the conference, you will be asked to turn off your camera and microphone so that the chair can start the forum. During each presentation you will be able to ask questions in the chat box function. The forum will include screen breaks, as well as topic themed interactive sessions which will take place in the breakout rooms.

"Forum was managed extremely well, and very professional"

IAPT National Networking Online Forum 2021 - 21st January 2021

“I am sure like everyone else I was apprehensive with going online, not sure how we could network, the ability for all participant's to participate and the quality of the presentations - all my fears were diminished this turned in to be a great day, networking, leading and sharing still occurred and links still formed. The presentations were excellent and the quality of the forum and set up great and so easy to follow and timing excellent.”

Reduce Paediatric Emergency Attendance Online Conference – 8th October 2020

“The conference has been far more engaging than in a conference centre. This I think is because of the ability to participate in chat throughout and the use of the breakout discussions.” “Excellent day! Organisation was great - loved the break out rooms for chat. Virtual chat added another really useful way to interact during the day, which isn't available to us at the physical conferences.”

Leading Change in Clinical Coding Online Conference - 11th September 2020

"Very informative, lots of opportunity for discussions and very well organised virtually"

Providing Support for Children on Long Term Ventilation - Tuesday 9th March 2021

"I enjoyed the group chats networking listening to others experiences, I also like that there was a lead on each group so the chats were influenced and no awkward silences that can occur on web meets. I thought the larger talks were really good and easy to listen to."

Modernising Outpatient Services Online Conference – 16th September 2020

“This is my first experience of an online conference and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't sure what to expect. Would recommend to colleagues to attend future events” “This has to be the best online conference I have been to, I really enjoyed the breakout rooms.”
