Are you struggling to motivate yourself and your pharmacy team?
Do you feel stuck in a rut, without the joy at work anymore?
Are you losing staff due to sickness and exhaustion?

If any of these concerns applies to you or your team, I can help.

We spend our days looking after the health and wellbeing of others, but ironically it is often at the expense of our own.


Irrespective of the role you have in the pharmacy, whether you are an owner, manager, pharmacist, technician, OTC assistant, or beauty consultant, taking steps to improve your wellbeing and that of your team, results in a host of benefits.


Not only for you, but also your entire workplace.

Retail Pharmacy is a fertile ground for burnout.

  • A heavily regulated environment
  • Excessive documentation
  • Demanding customers and patients
  • Long hours with no breaks
  • Prolonged periods of concentration

  • 46% less likely to take sick days
