Wylam Billington (WB) Wellbeing is a collaborative project created by Dr Jaimee Wylam and Dr Martin Billington.
We began working together when we discovered a shared passion to improve the wellbeing of health care workers in 2017.
From our base in South Yorkshire, we deliver and facilitate virtual and in person education for doctors, advanced clinical practitioners, medical students, physician associate students and a variety of health professionals.
WHAT WE DO
Using interactive workshops both online and in person, we offer a safe space to explore wellbeing. Those attending workshops have space and time to hear about our experiences, and to share their own.
A variety of exercises are used to provide opportunities to reflect, offer top tips and explore practical skills for wellbeing.
Participant feedback regularly highlights the value of hearing personal stories and these are used as the background to a rich learning experience exploring the workplace, self care and wellbeing.
We offer a range of online and in-person services including:
ONLINE OR IN-PERSON
This interactive day will create opportunities to learn and reflect using a selection of activities and exercises.
Delegates will have space and time to hear our experiences, and to share their own.
A wide range of topics will be covered including stress, self care, emotional awareness, sleep, mindfulness, optimism, connections and support.
ONLINE OR IN-PERSON
HALF DAY WORKSHOP
This interactive half day workshop will explore personal and professional wellbeing.
This condensed session includes a selection of the topics from our full day workshop and continues to offer an interactive experience.
This may easier tie into your organisation's development needs or available training time.
ONLINE OR IN-PERSON
A bespoke experience provides education and training with the specific needs of your organisation in mind.
We can work collaboratively, drawing on our wide and varied experiences, to produce a bespoke package to fit the ideas and values of your organisation.
This might include facilitating team away days and group meetings which can be designed to the team or group’s specific needs, with or without a focus on wellbeing.
