Our Wellbeing Team

is LGBTQIA+ led

Sara Kay – founder of Serious Laughter and Head of the Serious Wellbeing Team


From serious and depressed to joyful and vibrant…

Sara (LGBTQIA+) was clinically depressed in January 2016 and life was a bit grim.  A chance laughter workshop at a wellbeing day changed all that.  She discovered that good hearty laughter had been missing from her life for 20 years!

Since training as an FHT Accredited Laughter Yoga Teacher in 2016, Sara has worked with corporate clients, delivered talks, and been the ice-breaker at conferences.

A competent speaker, Sara has been on the stage of many conferences and festivals, including Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place Festival in Tatton Park, Knutsford, the College of Medicine, and Womanifest.

Additionally, Sara is a Museum of Happiness Facilitator, Mental Health First Aider Laughter Ambassador,  and delivers wellbeing workshops with great empathy, understanding, and confidence.

Sara has been a guest on many radio interviews, podcasts, magazine and TV appearances.

Favourite pastimes – puppeteering and pilates.

Life mission: To inspire the human race to be happier, healthier and more authentic.
