Wellbeing EDvantage was founded to promote psychological wellbeing for young people and adults in schools and the community. We do this by developing the knowledge, skills and confidence of adults to build their own wellbeing and support the wellbeing of others. We also work with organisations to develop policies and procedures that support professionals working with young people.
Our mission is to transform lives through consultancy and training services that bring wellbeing to the heart of schools, policy and the community. This is underpinned by our values:
Our approach is founded on respect for our clients, their skills and knowledge, and their desire for personal and professional growth. We treat our clients with courtesy and consideration regardless of their position, tenure or status and we respect their privacy and confidentiality.
Integrity and Authenticity
What we teach is what we live. We practice mindfulness in our daily lives, and our work in consultancy and training comes from a depth of experience over many years of working with young people, schools and adults. We also seek to continually extend our knowledge, skills and experience through our own ongoing research, training and development.
A partnership perspective guides the way we work with our clients. We fully appreciate our clients’ knowledge and experience and incorporate these into our approach. We work in a manner that is team oriented and constructive in order to strengthen capabilities and help our clients achieve their goals.
Evidenced based practice and policies
Our work with individuals and organisations is informed by evidence-based practices and policies. We work to integrate the best available research with professional expertise and apply this in the context of an individual’s or organisation’s characteristics, culture and preferences in a way that is tailored to their needs.
We accept, value, and incorporate the contribution of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. We believe diversity of thought, expertise, experience, gender and cultural background is crucial to creating an environment in which creative opportunities and new ideas emerge.
We are committed to building the wellbeing of young people and adults so they can lead fulfilling, productive and responsible lives. We seek to have a positive and lasting impact for our clients. We believe that by working together, we can transform lives and make the world a better place.
