Ruth Kent

Helping businesses make their teams happier & healthier so they can flourish in work & life

Ruth Kent is a sought after corporate wellness consultant, wellness coach, workshop facilitator, and mindfulness teacher. She provides one hour to whole-day workshops, retreats, classes and programs designed to educate, empower and energise in mindbody wellbeing.

She founded Sunrise Well in 2014 to help people become mindfully aware of their health and wellbeing so that they can live and perform at their best. In her work she shares the latest evidence-based, woo-woo-free research in a fun and inspiring way.

With a lifelong passion for health and wellbeing and a natural curiosity of people and what makes them tick, Ruth first learned to meditate at the age of 15, at a time when meditation was far from the mainstream.

This motivated her to dive in and learn more about her mind and herself, as well as get a better understanding of others and their unique health and wellbeing behaviours. Her curiosity and passion for wellbeing led her to study Psychology, a Post Graduate Diploma in International Public Health, 500+ hours of yoga teacher training, Level 3 wellness coaching, and a master’s in Biomedical Meditation Therapy and Allied Health.

She brings this extensive training to her work, alongside her 25+years of personal meditation experience.

Ruth has consulted with and provided wellbeing workshops and coaching to many national and international organisations, including, but not limited to, Cochlear Ltd., Australian Ethical Investment, ANZ Bank, The University of Adelaide, Commonwealth Bank, and Cushman & Wakefield. She has also worked with some of Australia’s top celebrities and media brands to collaborate in memorable wellbeing-based campaigns and events.

Whether it is a full-day wellbeing retreat or an online lunch-and-learn, Ruth uses her extensive facilitation experience and her in-depth wellbeing and coaching knowledge to provide practical tips and guidance in a fun and easy to apply manner.

She aims to always leave participants with plenty of tools to add to their own wellbeing toolkits. Ruth has also created a number of digital products in the form of an e-book, short courses, audios, guided meditations and wellbeing products as part of the Sunrise Well – Wellbeing Academy.

She lives in Brisbane and loves escaping to the coast on the weekends with her husband and her two loud and fun-loving kids.
