Simplifying Mental Health to Inspire People to Get the Best out of Themselves and Others

Retreats | Workshops | Public Speaking

Thera-Sea was founded by Katy Griffin, a leading mental health expert who has enjoyed a successful career as a mental health nurse. Thera-Sea is a company dedicated to taking an educational approach to preventing mental health difficulties by supporting participants to advance their awareness of mental health and those around them. Thera-Sea is determined to take prevention of mental health difficulties to the next level in a bid to try and make real change in the way we treat mental health.

Thera-Sea does not believe in quick fix solutions for such complex issues. Instead, company founder Katy has combined her clinical and personal experience, scientific research and case histories to present broad perspective talks and workshops delivered using simple, uncomplicated language. Thera-Sea aims to enlighten and motivate participants to advance their own awareness and skills set as well as the people around them.
