About Aurora Wellness

Our story
Why we do what we do

Why Wellness Matters

Your wellness impacts every aspect of your life – your work, your relationships and your health.  It isn’t just physical – it is about the alignment of your mind, body and soul.  More and more of us are struggling with the rigours of modern life.  Juggling work, home, family, friends and trying to find time for yourself in all that, takes its toll.  It is no wonder that more and more people are suffering with common mental health disorders (CMDs) such as anxiety and depression each year.  Women in particular are nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety disorders than men.  Aurora Wellness was established to help fight back against these dangers of stressful living and restore balance to your life.
You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. A. A. Milne

The Aurora Fundamentals.

At Aurora we believe that good mental health and wellbeing is as fundamental to life as good physical health. We believe that you should not have to fight your demons alone. And we believe that you have the right to a fulfilling career, personal life and purpose.

Pause. Think. Act.

Pause. Think. Act. We know that these are the three key steps to creating lasting change. We call these three steps “the pillars of wellbeing” and every course that we run falls into at least one of these categories. Our programmes are designed to enable you to pause, think and act to resolve your key life challenges, taking you from reflection to action.

Pause

First things first – Pause. The Pause step encourages awareness about what’s really going on with you. It provides you with the space required to listen to your inner self. If you truly want to improve your life and create lasting change, then you need to give yourself the freedom to do so. Taking care of yourself isn’t selfish; it’s about saying “me too” not “me first!”. You cannot pour from an empty cup – you must look after yourself before you can give good care to the special others in your life.

Think

Next step – Think. This phase is about your ‘personal audit’ – an honest and objective examination of your past, present and future. To know where you’re going, you need to know where you’ve been. Acknowledge your limiting beliefs and recognise your inner bully. Together we will fashion effective weapons to silence them for good. Once you have come to terms with who you are, then you can dare to dream of who you might become. We encourage the most creative part of you to emerge with possibilities, solutions and ideas.

Act

And finally, Act. The Act phase is about taking action to ensure lasting change. It is all well and good to dream, but you want to see those dreams become reality! This requires audacity, boldness, courage… and a plan. At Aurora we know that failing to plan is planning to fail, and we are determined to see you succeed. We specialise in breaking your dreams down into SMART goals : targets that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-based. Now, let’s get started!

Meet the Team

At Aurora we are passionate about people.  We are committed to helping you discover who you are and what you want from life.  Together we will build a roadmap to help you navigate where you want to go and to overcome any obstacles that stand in your way.  We are here to help!

Catherine Banks

I am a qualified meditation teacher, with a Diploma from the British School of Meditation (BSoM); I am also registered with the BSoM as an approved and accredited teacher and holds a diploma in MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction). As well as obtaining a unique qualification in the subject, I have practised meditation myself for over 6 years and have developed my own personal practice in different types of meditation through various classes, courses and retreats, including silent meditation retreats in Thai Monasteries. In 2017, I founded my own holistic wellness business which predominantly focuses on meditation and mindfulness as a way to help individuals, businesses and families cope with stress, anxiety and the chaotic lifestyle which modern living brings. All meditation sessions that I run aim to help you calm your mind, create inner balance and uncover the importance of your own self care.

Rita Edah

I’m a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist, certified Life Coach, NLP Practitioner, mentor, author and mum. I’ve played very many different roles in my life and one thread is recurrent – empowering people, helping people gain new perspectives, see new opportunities, overcome barriers, gain new skills, find new opportunities… one way or another, I tend to support people at various stages of their life journeys… Today, I specialise in skillfully working with people to get unstuck. If you feel stuck – in any area of your life – I can work with you to get unstuck. If you feel lost and confused, I can walk with you to find your way. If you have lost your voice and want it back, I can work with you to find it, and use it, if that’s your desire. This has been my personal journey… going from ‘yuck and stuck’ to growing in my fabulous freedom. I have not travelled it all by myself. I have invested in professional support along the way and will continue to do so as an important part of my personal self-care and growth package. In my work, I offer a non-judgmental relationship that is based on trust, respect and acceptance.
