Hazel Harrison speaking at 'Healthy Longevity', 15-16th October 2019

We are absolutely delighted to have Hazel Harrison, Clinical Psychologist and founder of 'Think Avellana' as speaker at our conference on 'Healthy Longevity taking place at Adastral Park on 15th - 16th October 2019.

Dr Hazel Harrison set up ThinkAvellana with a mission to bring psychology out of the clinic and into workplaces and schools. Harnessing her belief that prevention is better than cure, she develops and delivers keynotes and training workshops on a range of wellbeing and mental health topics.

These include ‘How to build resilience’, ‘The upside of stress’, ‘Mindfulness matters’, ‘Learning from failure’, ‘How to recognise and apply your strengths’ and ‘The science of happiness’.

She’s worked with the BBC, Daily Mail Group, Fremantle, Royal Ballet School, Saatchi & Saatchi, and The Times. Her local clients include Birketts, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, East of England Co-Op, Howes Percival plus numerous primary and secondary schools and colleges.

Hazel completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Media at Leeds University before completing her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University of East Anglia. After graduating, she worked in the NHS for 13 years and specialised in helping children and families.

Hazel lives in Suffolk with her husband and two children, who frequently tell her they’re the only ones at school without a dog or any other pet. Hazel would love to have a Labrador or Beagle one day but is less inclined to give a lizard a home.

The demand on mental health services is increasing and the need for support far outweighs the resources available. In this context, how can we take care of our mental health as we age? How can digital technologies enhance our wellbeing and what solutions can they offer to the mental health crisis? In this keynote, Dr Hazel Harrison, will address several areas of wellbeing and look at the digital solutions already being developed that may play a crucial role in ageing positively.

Fun Fact!
Hazel just became a Suffolk county champion in the Suffolk 10K 2019 road race.
