A room full of women watching a woman facilitate a mindfulness workshop

We specialise in engaging workshops that get people laughing (even on Zoom!)

Infused with relatable storytelling & humour

Andrea Featherstone is an unconventional mental health facilitator and former mindfulness sceptic. She specialises in using relatable personal stories to create engaging, laugh-filled workshops for practical people, high achievers and sceptics.

Andrea has over a decade of experience facilitating workplace wellbeing workshops across Australia, the UK, and NZ for organisations like Bluescope Steel, MYOB, Exxon Mobil, and BMW.

Andrea has trained with Professor Craig Hassed (OAM), Dr Daniel Siegel, Eckhart Tolle, and Jack Kornfield. (As well as a degree in architecture, which she mainly puts to use by building mediocre furniture in her spare time)

Are your employees and leaders…

  •  Stressed?
  •  Finding it difficult to switch off and reset?
  •  Losing focus and procrastinating on major tasks?
  •  Overthinking, lacking resilience?
  •  Relying on coffee to stay mentally alert?
  •  Getting caught up in workplace conflict?
  •  Feeling burnt out?

Looking after your employees’ mental health is good for morale & good for business.

Globally, researchers estimate that 12 billion productive workdays are lost to depression and anxiety alone, costing ∼US$ 1 trillion.1

In Australia, 3.2 days per worker are lost each year through workplace stress. Stress-related absenteeism and presenteeism are directly costing Australian employers $10.11 billion a year.2

$1 invested in workplace mental health can return $65 in savings

due to reduced sick leave, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity 3

Andrea is a fabulous presenter and a good fit for the College.

The workshop was really well put together, in my opinion. It made the whole concept really easy to understand for newcomers and some learning for those already acquainted with mindfulness.

Looking forward to our next workshop.

Yesterday’s workshop was great as per usual!

Andrea presented a fantastic, interactive webinar.

Her presentation style, the relatable examples she gave and the content presented resonated with the staff that attended.

Looking forward to the next workshop!

10/10 - It was the best workshop I have ever been to of its kind.  It's not easy to keep police engaged when talking about things such as mindfulness.  

The presentation was very enjoyable, engaging, relatable and well spoken.  Andrea was an excellent presenter and had the answer to every question asked of her.  I would recommend Andrea any day.

I came to this talk thinking it would be someone presenting EQ while I sit back and absorb, but right from the start I felt engaged and involved in the presentation. 

Without realising, the time had passed and I had participated throughout the discussion and my emotions were lifted. I came out feeling positive and with some tools to use to manage the ups and downs in life. Must have life skill. 
Highly recommend to all.

Thanks again for today - really loved this session, it was brilliant.

Our company talks about mindfulness a lot but we have never had anyone come in and talk to us about what it is, exactly how to be mindful, and why it is so important.

I highly recommend Andrea if you want to learn how mindfulness can positively impact your life!

Andrea conducted 4 fantastic emotional intelligence workshops for our PD day and really hit the nail on the head for what we needed!

Andrea’s style of facilitating was engaging and incorporated a combination of practical tasks, short video clips, and theory underpinned by research.

Andrea was an excellent presenter and I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.
