About Us

What drives us

Our mission is to support people to develop their wellbeing so that they are able to maximise their own sense of inner peace, life satisfaction, joy and function effectively in every area of life.

What we do

The Institute of Wellbeing is a specialist organisation founded by Mike Kelly (CEO), responsible for providing national guidance on the promotion of healthy lifestyles and total well-being.

We work with practitioners, young people and parents to equip families with the life skills they need to achieve positive emotional and mental wellbeing and resilience.

We offer a range of approaches including, music therapy, bespoke courses, coaching and mentoring that help create a culture of empowerment, growth and balance.

What we believe

At the Institute of Wellbeing, we believe that Wellbeing begins with ‘being well’ in ‘your self so that you may be well in the world’.

Education Matters

We believe that education and a ‘life course approach’ is the fulcrum that helps create a fairer society which empowers an individual to achieve their ‘own sense of wellbeing’.

A choice to ‘be well’

We believe that people are not defined by their social and economic status and we all have a choice to ‘Be Well’. Sometimes we all need a helping hand and that’s where the Institute of Wellbeing comes in.

How do we define wellbeing?

Wellbeing is about promoting a better way of life and equality for citizens. Wellbeing in its simplest definition is: Being Well. It is where the basic human requirements are met, whilst being afforded the opportunity to have optimistic aspirations enveloped in an environment where the endeavour of ‘Being Well’ can be achieved, therefore, attaining a satisfactory quality and standard of life and happiness.
