What others have to say about us:
Having spent my working career in a high paced, demanding and stressful industry, I wanted to learn how to prioritise my health and wellbeing whilst still building and maintaining a successful career. Angela’s support and guidance throughout the course has been invaluable and I would highly recommend that organisations invest in wellness training and development like that offered by ASWA, even more so in this era of COVID-19.
I felt less alone and am very grateful to have been gifted this training course to learn and practice personal skills in wellbeing. Having Angela facilitate the online group also gives me a greater sense of purpose and a safe space to connect with others. I don’t know how I would’ve got through this challenging year without my Wellness Within and ASWA.
ASWA’s Wellness Within program provides the tools, techniques and support for team members to take control of their own wellbeing.
Our environment is fast paced and ever changing so employee wellbeing is key to having a productive and engaged team. ASWA’s training programs provide practical techniques and tips to support me and my team.
The ASWA Wellness Tracker provides a great overall snapshot of an individual or a group to determine and prioritise wellbeing needs as a basis for developing a wellbeing business case and strategic planning purposes.
What gets measured gets managed. For my team and organisation, the ASWA Wellness ROI Calculator and Wellness Tracker provide relevant data and benchmarks for measuring and monitoring our wellbeing strategy and initiatives to shift from reactive to prevention-focused.
ASWA’s concept of providing roadmaps for wellness in life, workplaces and businesses, are excellent innovations that provide opportunity for leaders, and future leaders, to participate in innovative and valuable development programs.
People need to feel safe coming to work and to be able to bring their whole self to work. With a team of approx. 100 people and an environment that is fast paced and ever changing, employee wellbeing is key to having a productive and engaged team. ASWA has helped us form strategies on how to create an environment that promotes health, safety and wellbeing.
I’ve enrolled in your Wellness Within Program today and I’ve just finished the Wellness Tracker, which I thought was spot on in terms of the results and how it is illustrated … great work. Looking forward to continuing the program!

Personally, the ASWA Wellness Tracker provides an essential measurement of my wellbeing and importantly, where to focus my time and energy for the greatest impact.
I wanted to combine business skills with my passion for helping people with fitness and wellbeing to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. Convenient and easy to organise in my own time at home, I enjoyed every module. We have expert assistance from Angela and the ASWA team who are approachable and available.
