Lose Your Mind Empathy Training is a social enterprise that offers innovative experiential learning training packages to enhance the mental health culture of communities and organisations. Feeling heard and understood is a fundamental human need and research has shown that leaders and staff with high levels of empathy have greater staff mental health, improved business performance and better client / patient / student outcomes.


We  recognise the importance of experiential learning in the development of empathy and us experiences such as Virtual Reality simulations to engage participants personally and emotionally as well as providing practical tools for enhanced communication.

Workshop learning outcomes:

  1. Recognise the importance of empathy in fuelling connection.

  2. Reduce the stigma of mental illness.

  3. Develop personal insight into your own need to be heard and for human connection.

  4. Gain a greater understanding of the issues faced by those struggling with their mental health.

  5. Develop practical skills to communicate empathy.

  6. Become a safe space for open communication and connection.

  7. Learn to listen with love and kindness and without judgment.

  8. Recognise the importance of, and strategies for self care.


To seek help, someone struggling with their mental health needs to talk and to talk they need to feel safe to share their truth. By equipping  schools, workplaces and communities with greater empathy, understanding and compassion, we create safe spaces for open communication and connection.
