Testimonials

90 minutes very well spent and exactly what our team needed.

Jon facilitated a Mindfulness and Wellbeing introductory session for our staff. This was 90 minutes very well spent and exactly what our team needed to switch off and focus on their own mental health and overall wellbeing during a very challenging time. Jon has a very open, calm and friendly manner and approach. The session was well paced, very clearly and logically presented and Jon kept us engaged with lots of interaction, humour and positivity. The mindfulness tools and simple strategies Jon shared with us are very easy to implement. The feedback from our staff was extremely positive. Thank you Jon for a fantastic introduction to mindfulness and for sharing your experiences and strategies.
