Shine Workplace Wellbeing launched in spring 2018 and since then we’ve helped companies of all sizes in all sectors improve the health and happiness of their workforce, enhancing business performance as a result.  

Clients benefit from our core team of senior consultants who are experts in their field – read more about their credentials below. And we partner with other consultants and businesses we know and trust when the brief requires it.

We are based in London’s Kennington Park (just by Oval station) and from March 2020 in Bristol. We also advise and support businesses in other regions of the UK and we plan to have a presence in Manchester in Q2 2020. Watch this space!

Matthew Carlton, Founder & Principal Consultant 

In 2017, Matthew gave up a career in marketing to pursue his passion for exercise and wellbeing, retrained and began studying workplace wellbeing. He identified a growing demand to help companies support both the physical and mental wellbeing of their employees – and Shine Workplace Wellbeing was born! 

Matthew regularly shares his workplace wellbeing expertise in the media and at industry events, where he is known for his insightful and upbeat approach. He oversees all client programmes at Shine and is constantly looking for new, innovative ways to help companies create better workplaces where employees can thrive.

Oliver Frois, Mental Health Lead Consultant
After initially working in advertising, Oliver has worked in NHS mental health services for over a decade, during which he completed a degree in Psychology and further professional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the University of Exeter. 
As a practising CBT therapist, Oliver treats individuals suffering from common mental health difficulties including depression and various anxiety disorders. Oliver is a great believer in prevention being better than a cure and is a strong advocate of strategies that demystify and destigmatise mental health, and cultivate positive wellbeing in the workplace. 
Emer Pateman, Wellbeing All Rounder

With a background as a life coach and a keen runner, Emer has always had a strong interest in health and wellbeing. She channelled this interest into the workplace by successfully implementing an employee wellbeing programme in her role as a Deputy Principal at a nursery business, helping the company achieve a London Healthy Workplace Award. 

Since being part of the team at Shine, Emer’s passion for wellbeing can be seen in her wide-ranging, topical and insightful blog pieces, her work on client projects, and her enthusiastic presence at events we’ve exhibited at.

Nigel Pacey, Consultant and Workshop Facilitator 

Nigel helps Shine’s clients to embed a wellbeing culture in their organisations, by ensuring senior management understand the benefits of a happy, healthy workforce. He delivers training in areas such as workplace culture, resilience training, and managing with empathy.
