The Como Shambhala Urban Escape spa at the Metropolitan London hotel, UK, has launched a mental wellbeing Speaker Series in association with mental health support specialists Head Talks
. The programme will kick off in January 2020.
In each session, speakers share their own personal wellness journey, while discussing ways to overcome the myriad of daily challenges that disrupt our path to wellbeing – including the importance of sleep, carving out time for joyful experiences and tackling mental exhaustion.
Highlights include a session on parenting hosted by clinical psychologist Dr Genevieve von Lobb. Dr von Lobb will provide guidance for parents on how to grapple with the challenges that children face today, such as cyberbullying, eco-anxiety, intense academic demands and social media.
The schedule also includes a talk by Charlotte Reed, author of May The Thoughts Be With You
, who will share details about how she handled depression and anxiety by writing and illustrating positive thoughts.
Attendees will have the option to complement sessions with body and mind therapies at the Asian-inspired Urban Escape spa.
Each speaker session will last two hours and costs £45 (US$58, €52) per person.
