"Having tried yoga, CBT, kinesiology, acupuncture and other therapies (as well as psychiatrist consultation and prescribed medications) over the 12 or so years I have had anxiety I feel that I have never mastered meditation. And yet everyone I've worked with (as well as GPs etc) have emphasised its importance. I feel that my sessions with you have got me as close to effective meditation as I have been."

I am grateful for the new tools i can now add to my mental toolbox! I feel really confident now in my ability to be more mindful of my thoughts, emotions and reactions!

Wendy Morda- (Student)

Learning mindfulness from Coco has made a massive change in my life. My life and interactions seem calmer and one of my colleagues recently said, “how come you’re so calm” i had a warm smile on my face.

Monika Hackaworthy- (Student)

Coco has enabled me to reflect on my own thinking and change the way i react to life in general. I have certainly learned how to relax my mind and body.

Cheryl Clinton- (Student)

I find i am spending more time ‘in the now’ as opposed to worrying about the future or dwelling on the past. As a result, i experience fewer and less intense feelings of anxiety and frustration, thank you.

Erin- (Student)

What fantastic learning experience i had, i have learned so much about mindful living. Coco is a great teacher and so knowledgeable.

Leanne- (Student)

Coco has helped me to recognize how i am feeling, take a breath, accept it, and move on, i feel calmer.

Roseann Mcgregor- (Student)

Thanks Coco, it’s been great learning how to understand, accept and regulate my emotions. Rather than running from reactive emotions i now breathing deeply and consciously try to relax. This has helped my stress levels, thanks for you’re insights and leading such a productive group.

Gill Cooper- (Student)

Thank you for the recent mindfulness presentation delivered across the North East Region of the Department of Justice and Community Safety. The feedback received from the staff has been overwhelmingly positive and many have commented on the usefulness of the techniques and the immediate impact on reducing workplace stress. Much of the work that we do involves dealing with people who are in crisis and they can often present a highly distressed state. This can have a cumulative impact and can often result in staff experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety.

While the Department provides a range of staff wellbeing services,  we also continue to promote opportunities to self-care. Mindfulness is yet another important skill that they can now utilize. Your presentation was personable, engaging and highly informative and I would highly recommend theses session to any employer wishing to improve staff wellbeing and workplace culture.

Thank you once again

Your presentation was engaging and very relevant and we appreciated your honesty.

Thank you once again.
