Mental health, Webinars

A free webinar from IP Inclusive and Jonathan’s Voice

Thursday 7 December 2023

12.30 – 1.30 pm


There seems to be a lot to be anxious about at the moment and it’s coming at us from all directions along with the Christmas lights and office parties.

Join Jonathan’s Voice trainers, Barbara Lawton, Katie Behrens and Mark Fudge, to get a deeper insight into anxiety: what’s causing it, how it affects our brains and bodies,  the impact on our work, especially in IP, and, most importantly, some ideas on how to manage it.



Barbara Lawton has 30 years’ experience working as a counsellor, lecturer and mental health trainer. She is a Senior Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a former Chair of their Universities and Colleges Division.

Katie Behrens  is a British trained GP who has worked as a partner in a busy inner city London GP practice for several years. She has experience in Occupational Health having worked for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office looking after employees in UK and overseas and Cordell health, an Occupational Health provider in the UK. She has lived overseas, most recently in Singapore where she worked in a joint new medical school which was created in collaboration with Imperial College, London. She has a particular interest in mental health having had experience in a wide number of settings both in UK and overseas and with varied socio-economic groups and ages. She has worked at the Charlie Waller trust delivering mental health awareness training since 2018 and joined Jonathon’s Voice in 2022.

Mark Fudge has worked as a counsellor within higher education for 20 years and previously had a career in health development.


Who’s it for?

This event is for all UK-based IP professionals who are interested in mental wellbeing. We don’t mind where you work, what role you play there or what career level you’re at. This is an important topic, which touches many and matters to all of us.



Please register using the Eventbrite link above (top right). If you have specific access requirements for the event, please get in touch and we’ll do what we can to help.


Bring a guest!

At IP Inclusive we want to reach as many IP people as possible. Why not invite a guest to watch the webinar with you – someone in a different role or at a different career level, perhaps; an ally or potential ally; or a colleague who’s not yet involved with IP Inclusive? They’ll be most welcome!



This event is free. So are all our resources. The Jonathan’s Voice events and resources are also free at the point of delivery. That said, both organisations do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoyed the event please consider contributing. For more information, visit the IP Inclusive fundraising page or the Jonathan’s Voice donations page.
