After 9 years in clinical psychology, including four years at the Victoria University of Wellington, Jasmine was attracted to Umbrella for the opportunity of working in health promotion.
“Clinical work can be reactive and heavy, and you often feel like the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. Instead, Umbrella’s approach is about working to keep everyone well and promoting mental wellbeing.”
Jasmine splits her time between one-on-one coaching with clients from the smallest businesses to the busiest corporates, and facilitating Umbrella’s workplace wellbeing workshops.
“I particularly love facilitating our ‘Thrive’ workshops. They’re so well named as we concentrate on positive psychology, teaching techniques and concepts that allow people to do just that – thrive. At Umbrella, we operate in a space where we can make meaningful changes for people. Rather than focusing only on those who are unwell, we focus on keeping everyone well.”
