    Sleep Webinars

    Supporting your employees at home

    In light of the global health crisis situation, and staff working from home, many of our clients have asked us to move to a webinar format to support employees with sleep, anxiety and stress while at home. We offer online training and well being support via connected devices so your colleagues can participate from home which avoids any contamination and non-essential travel. Something to think about.

     

    Learning from home

    Sleep knowlege and therapy delivered digitally

    Our live webinars are interactive with video of the speakers , presentation slides, audience polls, Q&A and hands up features to engage attendees. We are able to deliver the same knowledge and exercises, therapeutic taster sessions, downloadable worksheets, and even demonstrate several relaxation techniques and practices over video. The response has been really good therefore we will continue to offer the remote working format.

    Group or 121 sessions

    Learning how to relax and sleep

    We offer an opportunity for your team to learn how to pause, try sleep techniques, recharge, and walk away with a personal sleep strategy. Our format is interactive with talks, exercises, demonstrations, sleep tips, Q&As, practical techniques and take-aways.

    WeSleep at Work

    On-site learning events

    We come to you to give educational workshops on the topic of sleep improvement for the well being of your staff.

    Increase Productivity

    Sleep workshops at the office

    Sleep deprivation is linked to lower productivity at work, which results in a significant amount of working days being lost each year. On an annual basis, the U.S. loses an equivalent of around 1.2 million working days due to insufficient sleep. This is followed by Japan, which loses on average 600,000 working days per year. The UK and Germany both lose just over 200,000 working days.

  • The Philosophy

    learn. discover. sleep more. live more.

    A journey of curiosity

    It is time to take charge of your sleep and not let it be in charge of you. Time to listen to your body, develop awareness, take time to learn what your body wants more of and perhaps less of. A time for new beginnings and learnings. To embed new habits with benefits which can last a lifetime. A shift in perspective. Re-awakening of all the senses. A time to breathe. A time to reconnect with what matters. How to re-pattern our thoughts and feelings. How to accept the past and be ready to make changes for the future. To have old routines beautifully broken.

    We sleep. We dream. And we then feel...

    ... calm. safe. rested. energized. ready. curious. hopeful. invigorated. productive.

    WeSleep - Venetia Armitage

    A nutritionist and expert in adrenal fatigue

    A practising nutritionist for more than 20 years who will help with sleep deprivation issues and its associated problems. Work/life balance has sadly become increasingly distorted for most of us. Lack of time to plan meals, poor food choices and rushed or late meals or too much alcohol can trigger sleep issues. This vicious cycle can then generate adrenal fatigue which is often seen in individuals who are very sluggish in the mornings, relying on caffeine to get them going and eating high carbohydrate foods which they wrongly believe will sustain them.

  • About our Founder

    I want to help you experiment and find out what can help improve your sleep

    Julie Wright - Libra Rising Ltd - WeSleep

    Julie Wright

    Chief Sleep Orchestrator

    I count my blessings for each and every good night's sleep. I mean that. Years ago I embarked on a journey full of discoveries and experiments to understand how to improve sleep. It gave me the idea to support others with the issue of insomnia and poor sleep quality, as a powerful and meaningful business ambition.

     

    Poor habits, big life changes and events in all aspects of life can impact sleep. Corporate and political pressures at work, family and fertility issues, relationships gone wrong, losing a job, losing people we care about… as well as feeling the excitement for every positive step in life, towards a better future full of possibilities and opportunities, yet feeling that we never have enough time to do fulfill all of our ambitions or do things well enough!

     

    As a media and entertainment consultant under Libra Rising Limited, I support innovative businesses and start ups bringing new concepts to the well-being, entertainment and travel industries. Previously, I have gathered my most significant professional experience as a business executive at Paramount Pictures, Disney ABC Television, Warner Music Group, RealNetworks and more recently at BBC's UKTV and The Box Plus Network (Channel 4). Whether in my earlier career or throughout all of my roles, I have worked in event organisation in the UK, US and France for a range of private, corporate and media clients.

     

    In the past, I have been contributing to people’s happiness by bringing entertainment to their lives. But now, as the founder of WeSleep, my aim is now to help people live better lives by improving their sleep. My motto is: Sleep more, Live more.
