My name is Genevieve Belle and I am originally from Cameroon which is a multi-culturally diverse country which afforded me with a unique childhood. As a very welcoming country, our neighbours and classmates could be from anywhere in the world, there was and still is a strong influence from Asia, Europe and the Middle East with their cuisines reflected in the local restaurant scene. As a young child that fostered a love for food which was never waned.
World Mental Health Day 2021! The theme this year is 'mental health in an unequal world'. At SVB we are here to support you in any way to ensure people from the BAME community receive the help they require. Please contact us at [email protected] or 01274 731166 if you want some support, we are here for you 🧡🧠👏🏽
As World Mental Health Day is rapidly approaching, we wanted to take the time to reflect on what mental health means to you? Everyone's perception of mental health is most likely varied. 🧠🧡 To me mental health means keeping your mind healthy by taking care of yourself. What about you?
This weeks session was a walk in the park. Our clients wanted to make the most of the weather. Walking or running seems to give us an extra boost when done in natural environments rather than indoors, reducing feelings of anger, fatigue and sadness
