My name is Louisa Downs and I joined the Simpila team as Mental Health Trainer and Business Consultant in October 2022 moving from AXA Health as a Wellbeing Manager and MHFA Instructor. In 2011, Louisa graduated from Leeds University with a BSc (Hons) in Sports and Exercise Science which has led her to a career of over 10 years’ experience in the health and wellbeing world. She is passionate and fascinated about keeping up to date about latest science on how our lifestyle choices and behaviours impact our mindset and body.

We also provide support programmes for MHFAiders in the business so that they can thrive and be supported in the role.
