What is it you think your team really need?

Planning your team away day, can feel like quite an over-whelming event.  Trying to get the right tone and focus and please everyone. 

With a focus on mental health and well-being at the core of our team away days, your experience combines practical and resourceful time together. 

Meet you and your team exactly where you are. A free initial consultation with JK will help you gain clarity on the style and focus of your day. To help your all to value the time and energy you take out for this day. 

For some teams, that's just a holding space in which to ask the 'what do you need' question and facilitate answers and actions that support a healthy, confident working culture. 

For other teams and organisations; you'll have a specific need that calls on prioritising. These commonly theme around stress management, resilience and managing change, communication and team relationships, ideas and vision alignment and over-all mental health and well-being strategy and culture. 



Complete this short questionnaire, to help you reflect on the needs of your next team away day. You will receive a personalised response from me, JK, recommending the theme and focus for your day, from our range of services.  

By completing the questionnaire, you will be added to our team well-being mailing list and receive follow up marketing and resources in relation to team well-being and personal development. You can unsubscribe at any time. 


Leading or planning a team away day can feel confusing and complicated. With so many areas to explore, how do you make the 'right choice' for the collective? Sometimes a simple conversation can go a long way, in helping you figure out the next steps for your team.

I offer a free consult of up to 45 minutes, a confidential space to talk things through and sound stuff out. Together we will explore current challenges and aims for the team. Help you to understand if Where the Mind Grows is the right approach for your team (I'll be honest if not!) and explore the opportunities your team has to nurture and grow a rather fabulous workplace. 

Leaving the conversation with clarity and a plan of action. Whether we work together or not!

"Safe, welcoming space which has forced me to make time to address wellbeing for myself and my organisation"
"Reduction in anxious feelings at work..I have improved my own wellbeing and this has created the headspace for me to think about how to apply my learning to my organisation and to take positive steps to improve the wellbeing of employees."
"Helping me to put myself/own needs first without guilt or shame. Feels empowering to have this new vision that is sustainable and feel this has helped me on my own wellbeing journey"

About your coach/facilitator

Hi I am JK (Jennie-Kate) McQuinn - Coach, Founder and Facilitator at Where the Mind Grows.  Before doing this, I was a senior leader in public, private and community Mental Health and Employability projects. I had a real sense of the challenges purpose led, community teams and leaders have in keeping well - in the face and complexity of our modern day community needs. ​I've combined my focus on planet and people good health. Recognising the inter-connection between our stretched system, the poly-crises we are facing and the impact this all has on our mental health. I work with teams, leaders and individuals to root workplace well-being, and psychological safety at the core of work cultures. Not just nice fluffy stuff, real, courageous and impactful stuff.  So that your 'doing and being good' doesn't have to come at the consequence of your being human!​I am a trauma-informed coach, working with a mixed modality approach, including ecopsychogy and regenerative leadership. Combining strategies and resources for human and planetary health. ​Learn more about me here
