Shirish Kulkarni

Adult Mental Health First Aid Instructor 

I’ve worked in a range of mental health roles over the last 15 years - alongside my work as a journalist and trainer. I spent five years as a Childline Volunteer, before going on to do a Certificate in Counselling and train as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor. 


In my work in TV news, I’ve  produced a number of investigations focussing on mental health issues - including work on the over-prescription of anti-depressants and ADHD medication to young people.


I work with Elemental Health delivering Adult MHFA courses, training in schools and specialist mental health consultancy for newsrooms.

Angela McMillan

Director, accredited Psychotherapist, Trainer , Supervisor

​I set up Elemental Health after working as a counselling services manager, psychotherapist and trainer in educational establishments. I recognised that students and staff often feel concerned about how to talk about feelings and work with mental health issues and I began to deliver training that gave people the confidence to use these skills to support themselves and others.


I have a successful private therapy practice and have worked with diverse client groups at large charities including The Terrence Higgins Trust, Mind and the YMCA. 

I specialise in anxiety disorders and stress reduction.

I believe with the right support we can all reach our full potential.

Erin Hyland

Social Media Manager & Consultant, Online Assistant

I'm a social media manager and consultant, and the founder of social_self_ which helps businesses to boost their online presence through social media strategies and content.

I joined the team in 2018 and have loved developing Elemental Health's socials and online content.

As a young person and student myself, I’m excited to be part of the team. The mental wellbeing of young people is very important to me and I have seen first hand how the correct support and awareness can really help.

Gemma David

PSHE consultant lecturer, Mindfulness Teacher

I have 15 years experience working in large corporations both as a Business Manager and Human Resources Manager. 

I am a qualified Business Coach, and Psychometric Assessor.


I have received certification from The British Mindfulness Association to teach Mindfulness in Primary and Secondary Schools.  I have also completed an 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course.


I run a private acupuncture practice in Bristol and am passionate about living with the natural rhythm of nature. I create and deliver wellbeing workshops which provide spaces for meditation, advice on nutrition and gentle movement, and are delivered with an overall emphasis on seasonal living.
