Beverley Jones describes 2009 as her annus horribilis; a year that saw her crash out of her 30 years corporate career diagnosed with depression and severe anxiety. Her ‘burnout period’ lasted a year, and in August 2010 she opened the doors to her coaching business, Awaken.
Beverley’s experience has led her to now live her dream of becoming a published author and successful business owner. It’s through these avenues that she continues to help many others with their mindset and help them to understand that riches start within and not in the material, physical world.
In 2012 Beverly published ‘Made it thru the Rain’ charting her inspirational journey through depression and into recovery. Through her talks she shares the 7 signs you are not coping and how to identify them in yourselves and others, she also shares tips for self–care to ensure that your wellbeing is always forefront of your mind.
Through her online programmes Beverley has developed a programme which assists companies share wellbeing strategies with their teams.
Her knowledge of the small business, corporate and public services world is extensive, she has managed teams of over 200 staff, budgets of 8 million pounds and has now run her own business since 2010. Through all this she has gained an understanding in what is needed across businesses to manage the wellbeing of business owners and teams to reduce the risk of stress and anxiety within the workplace.
