Personal Details

Mike Lawrence Award-winning Health & Wellbeing Management Consultant. Providing convenient and affordable health and wellbeing services from our outstanding and well-equipped facilities in Sheffield and online.

Mike came initially aware of mental health through the challenges his young daughter faced when the family learned that she had ADHD and dyslexia.

Awareness of mental health took Mike on a journey of discovery to see how he could help his daughter through the challenges that she faced.

Mike took this knowledge into a very successful managerial career spanning 25 years, where he assisted and supported many employees with various mental health conditions.

Mike has since progressed into offering a much more unique and personalised service as a wellbeing practitioner, which has brought him national and international acclaim and a constant stream of private and corporate clients.

Delegate Feedback

Mike was excellent with educating and maintain focus of the class. The course in itself was brilliant but Mike supported every individual with understanding and provided the skills needed. I really enjoyed myself.

Michael again was excellent. Very in depth conversations and training about some tough subjects and a good pace. Michael took time to catch up with people during breaks to see how they are and talk about any issues they are facing. Second time I have had a course facilitated by him and again was very impressed by him.

Wish the course was longer loved it, I want to go further and see where it takes me

A fantastic learning opportunity and I really felt the course was detailed but also had good elements of practical learning. Yes it was difficult at times but talking about such subjects is never easy.

Thank you to Mike for his patience and also very supportive approach. I asked some difficult questions and he always researched the answer and then replied either after a break or the following day.Excellent course thank you MHFA for this initiative.

A really great course, that has given me a good understanding of mental illness and how to support people. It has now given me confidence to support people and an awareness of looking for signs of poor mental health.

Great pace. Well balanced blend of learning. Knowledgeable and friendly instructor.

I am very grateful to have attended this course, it is extremely worth while. I am looking forward to feeling confident in helping people if and when they require it. I believe I will become a better all round listener and more understanding person in general because of the skills I have learnt. Mike was an excellent instructor, I feel priveledged to receive his tuition. Thank you.

Mike was very professional, compassionate & understanding, Put us all at ease & answered any questions we had, A credit to MHFA England
The course was very inciteful with good content. The MHFA practice sessions were really good for preparing your and giving confidence for when the situation does arise.

The two day course was extremely informative and I feel I have learnt a great deal of knowledge in order to help, support & assist where I am able to.I had a great team to work with and I totally think that helped.

There were obviously some very sensitive topics to discuss, Mike handled these well and was patient and respectful of all on the course. Mike was engaging and walked us through each topic well. if there was anything he was unsure of he went away to look for the answer for us.Thank you Mike

Work Experience

Delivering much more than your typical wellbeing practitioner, Mike Lawrence’s knowledge, experience

And achievements have not only brought him national and international acclaim but a constant stream of private and corporate clients.

Mike began his career in the leisure and hospitality sector, improving thousands of Butlins’ holidaymakers' wellbeing through positive engagement, reassurance, and mindfulness. He also treated hundreds of more clients from the UK and abroad who suffered from a range of multi-skeletal conditions, including sciatica, tennis elbow and lower back pain. He instilled good habits within his clients who enjoyed long-term relief from their symptoms as a result of his unique,

tailored approach and mix of mind and body techniques.

Mike attained his DMS PGDip at London Metropolitan. He represented the university at the 4th International Conference on Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Management in Germany, where he received an award for his workshop entitled ‘How to alleviate stress: the importance for organisations to implement a more holistic view of the employee to alleviate stress’ (presented in collaboration with Robert M Gordon, American Psychological Association, USA and Paolo Scapellato, European University of Rome, Italy). Whilst there, he also collected several coaching awards, one of which, as a Football Association referee.

The mentoring and leadership aspects of these awards fuelled a fire within Mike, who saw the tangible impact his holistic outlook had on his clients. In 2008, after seeing Anthony Robbins in London, he subsequently trained as a life coach, mastering such practices as NLP, Clinical Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Tui Na, and becoming a Reiki Master.

Reducing absenteeism amongst workforces across the UK and improving employee morale and companies’ internal cultures meant Mike’s services were in great demand within the corporate world. He has worked with Computer Sense, the Public Carriage Office, Transport for London, Specialist Make-up Services Limited, the Nouveau Beauty Group, Dixons Store Group and Priority Data, and practice in Harley Street. He has coached thousands of employees, boosting their motivation, emotional resilience and mental health and instilling the foundations of good stress management.

Described by his clients as a hugely transformative, well-respected practitioner, Mike continued to impact the field of customer service, instilling direction and leadership in large teams. Hailed by the media as having a gift, he went on to open his own practice in Sheffield, which was subsequently hand-picked as one of the top three clinics in the city; the award was based on a 50-Point Inspection that included local reviews, trading standards, trust, price and general excellence.

Mike has been presented with a Certificate of Recognition of Outstanding Services Rendered in Organizing 4th International Conference on Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Management, by Robert M. Gordon, PhD Fellow of the American Psychological Association US. He has also received a Primary Certificate in Stress Management, approved by The British Psychological Society and International Society for Coaching Psychology. More recently, he was chosen as a winner in the 2019 Alternative Medicine and Holistic Health Awards hosted by GHP-News.

Mike’s passion is to help others become the best version of themselves on every level. The results his clients enjoy are consistently outstanding, and they also have a beneficial effect on an individual’s colleagues, their environment and family, and the community surrounding them.
