           I am Hawanatu and
           I am a wellbeing
           specialist. Welcome
           to this safe space.

The most essential job to build a strong and resilient workforce is the one that we do inward.

I had the honour of working with these distinguished organisations:

Since late 2021, major industries in Australia started witnessing 'The Great Resignation', with Australians quitting their jobs over mental health considerations and work-life imbalance.


With Covid hitting businesses here and there, commodities getting more expensive and workplace culture evolving into something more critical and competitive than they were pre-pandemic days, I'm not surprised that people are getting tired. The working class is exhausted.


This is why I am here.


I am Hawanatu Bangura, a social worker specialising in mental health, individual and organisational wellbeing.


As a mental health clinician, I am passionate about helping people enhance their wellbeing and self-worth.


Let me help your organisation rise up from the weight of stress and anxiety and re-claim your beautiful nature as capable human beings — grounded, calm, focused and balanced.



Building Workplace Resilience through the Rejuvenate Program

According to Heads Up Australia, one in five Australians (21%) have taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt stressed, anxious, depressed or mentally unhealthy. This statistic is more than twice as high (46%) among those who consider their workplace mentally unhealthy.


Now more than ever we are seeing the need to enhance mental wellbeing in the workplace and address issues that hinder your employees' professional growth.

  • The Rejuvenate program provides the resources required for employees to cope with stress and manage their emotions.

  • ​The Rejuvenated individuals are more connected to themselves, their work and feel a greater sense of belonging.

  • The Rejuvenated teams have higher productivity and performance.

  • The Rejuvenated organisations have a fresh sense of purpose and creativity leading to innovation and growth.

My Wellbeing Approach

Nourishing our wellbeing requires us to cultivate these three core aspects of creativity, storytelling and self-care.


Creativity makes us feel present and taps into our inner child to be curious, playful, energised. It helps us to visually manifest emotions.


Storytelling helps us understand the meanings we and others create. Expressing internal stories allows us the freedom to discover who we are and what we are capable of doing.


Self-care is a practical way to manage life stresses. By looking after our internal needs, we are being proactive towards feeling, thinking and being better.
