How I can help you - watch video

Welcome to #FreshAirFridays! Your opportunity to stop, relax, recharge and explore how to create the life, work and wellbeing you want - all whilst being outdoors in glorious nature with like-minded others! Each group session contains a different wellbeing related conversation theme and regular segments such as guided breathing and relaxation.

Fresh Air Fridays is for businesses, organisations and individuals to support and improve mental and emotional wellbeing. All sessions take place outdoors in green spaces, all over the country, and are not limited to just Fridays. Get that Friday feeling any day of the week.

Wellbeing For You - Newport

Come along to my monthly session on the first Friday of every month 10am-1pm at the RSPB Wetlands Nature Reserve. Or my alternative venue if the coastal path is due to be a bit TOO fresh. We go outdoors in all weathers!

Booking is required to participate and all you need to bring along is yourself (friends welcome too) and a flask of hot water for the tea break. Some people choose to bring along a bottle of water too. Come along and see what we do for yourself!

Your first time is FREE!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first 'Fresh Air Fridays', I stayed chilled for days." Dany

"It's all about wellbeing and my thinking becomes clearer too." Elizabeth

"Melanie has a very warm and gentle manner, and created a safe space for each of us to feel listened to and supported on her Fresh Air Fridays session." Maxine

"My cheeks are still glowing! Melanie gently guided us through a mix of mindfulness, being in nature and reflecting on the month's theme. The relaxation at the end was lovely too." Lisa

If you enjoy being outdoors in nature and you're up for some relaxation, connection, fun and some (light) talking, thinking and planning - on life, work and wellbeing - then you've come to the right place. Here's the time, space and support to do just that AND show up just as you are.

Wellbeing for Businesses and Organisations

Our 12-session programme, run over 12 or 24 weeks, will take your staff or service users into a green space for a highly interactive and engaging 75-minute session. They will learn how to look after themselves mentally and emotionally both professionally and personally, whatever life throws at them.

The experience of the Fresh Air Fridays team has shown that many people know how to look after their physical wellbeing – whether or not they choose to do so – but far fewer know how to look after their mental and emotional wellbeing.

When mental, physical or emotional health is poor it has an impact, not only on the person suffering, but on families, employers and service providers too. Currently, the NHS is looking to increase the number of referrals being made by GPs to wellbeing related classes, sessions, courses, clubs and programmes via it's 'social prescribing' agenda. Here in Newport, the council already has a team of Community Connectors helping people to discover, plan for and access wellbeing opportunities in the local area.
