Never has there been more of a need for emotional intelligence at home as well as at work in what is an increasingly complex and blurred life. After 15 years working in organisations, education and with families, we recognise the importance of emotional intelligence across all areas of life, and the need to educate, train and measure emotional intelligence. Play Well For Life takes a novel and holistic approach and creates engaging games to train the skills children and adults need to be effective in life, using scientifically proven approaches.
Our evidence-based training programmes includes a suite of games, because we recognise games are the most effective way to engage and learn. Through games that target specific age-groups and learner-types, participants work towards developing EI by choosing actions and experiencing their consequences. By focusing on emotional intelligence as a whole, participants learn to discern which emotion(s) to prioritise to make sense of complex situations, ultimately benefiting mental health, relationships, professional fulfilment and life contentment.
Our founder and CEO, Dr Sarah Campbell, holds a PhD in the psychology of emotions, and her research underpins the game concepts. She has spent 15 years working in wellbeing, education and organisations as a consultant, including publishing work on immersive experiences as learning contexts, following a previous career in the creative industries. An experienced educator and consultant, Sarah co-founded a successful wellbeing app and worked on games in the children’s health and scientific communication sectors. In addition to her PhD in psychology, Sarah is a qualified mental health first-aider and has a certificate in counselling skills.
