Corporate Wellness Sessions

Corporate Wellness Sessions

Looking for a unique and relatable wellness or team building session for your employees, clients, colleagues, or friends? If so, my Return to Wellness session is right for you!

Combining an educational background and research in psychology with a career in policy/HR, personal experience overcoming postpartum mental illness, and strategies discussed from my book (Unapologetic Truths: The Realities of Postpartum We Don’t Talk About), my aim is to provide clients and organizations with an all-encompassing approach to mental health and wellness.
The Return to Wellness session will:
  • Challenge Your Perceptions of Mental Illness
  • Shift Your Perspective of Mental Illness & Mental Health
  • Foster a Culture of Wellbeing
Raising awareness about the truths and realities of mental illness, breaking stigmas and negative self-perceptions, shifting perspectives about mental illness, and teaching strategies to foster a multifaceted culture of wellbeing; highlighting the impacts on relationships, work performance, self-esteem, motivation levels and productivity.
And of course, discussing my unique perspective on the benefits of mental illness (yes, you read that correctly) and how positivity can arise from the experience as well.
In addition, I offer consultation and policy services to assist in the development, auditing and writing of corporate policies and processes; see Policy Consultation & Freelance Writing for details.
I also offer two other types of Return to Wellness speaking sessions that further expand the conversations around mental health:
Return to Wellness – Resiliency & Mental Health
Return to Wellness – D&I and Mental Health

Yalda’s presentation was a powerful and honest experience described by employees as humbling, intelligent, relatable, empowering and caring. Her book, “UNAPOLOGETIC TRUTHS” is also a highly recommended read for some practical tips and advice that will help in your everyday life.

“Yalda and Aldona gave a powerful presentation during a lunch and learn seminar at Foster LLP. Everyone really enjoyed the presentation and thought it was not only informative, but also fun and entertaining as well. Both Yalda’s and Aldona’s personal stories also really added a touching element to the presentation which was very moving. These ladies really know their stuff and provided my colleagues and I with very helpful guidance, tips, and ideas on dressing well and the reasons behind it.”

"Hosting a Style Squared Session in our space was a great experience. The audience was actively engaged and both Yalda and Aldona presented useful, applicable knowledge in a friendly, approachable manner. Both stylists clearly have extensive experience is using fashion and style as more than just the cloth the clothes are made from. Using fashion as a tool to promote wellness, confidence and embracing your best self were ideas that clearly resonated with attendees. The addition of hands on styling, and bringing clothing items from local shops was both a nod to local designers and local retail, as well as a great way to demonstrate current trends and styling tips. Tangible takeaways for attendees are always a win! We would definitely host StyleSquared again!”
