This event is organised by the Mental Health and Wellbeing Society, in collaboration with Edinburgh Health and Fitness.


Booking is essential for this event - remember to get you free ticket via Eventbrite.


Finish the first day of Mental Health and Wellbeing Week with an inspiring talk from a stress specialist followed by snacks, drinks and socialising with others interested in emptying their stress bucket!


After this talk, you will definitely look at stress in a completely new and different way!


During the event, Gin Lalli will talk about the science behind how the brain functions during anxiety, stress and depression. An accumulation of negative thoughts over time can mean that we feel overwhelmed and out of control. Understanding the biological process that causes this enables us to manage these symptoms and feel better both mentally and physically. By using examples and metaphors, Gin gives you an accurate, straightforward explanation of brain function and how, by improving just one underestimated area of your life, you can ‘empty your stress bucket’.




“Gin’s presentation...completely blew me away”

“Every company and networking group should book her now”

“Gin has the ability to take the vast amount of information she knows on the brain and mental health, distil it down and translate it.”

“She presents her case for benefitting others in a clear and focused way and with a lightness of touch that makes her subject both interesting and appealing. I would recommend her without hesitation"

“Gin's presentation into "Emptying Your Stress Bucket" was fantastic”



Gin began her career as an Optometrist and increasingly found that anxiety, stress and depression were having a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of her patients. Gin has always been fascinated by how the brain works; why can some people cope with difficult circumstances and others find it more challenging? In order to investigate and understand brain function, Gin began a journey to study neuroscience and psychology, which ultimately led to her becoming a qualified Solution Focused Psychotherapist.


Gin helps people to regain control of their lives by explaining the science behind how the brain functions and by employing the latest evidence-based techniques of positive psychology and mindfulness.


By constructing personalised programmes Gin aims to create change quickly, without analysing the past and instead focusing on solutions going forward. Gin helps people with trauma, phobias, chronic pain, stress, anxiety and depression. She is always excited to see the benefit to her clients, empowering them to be back in the driving seat.
