… We undertook four one hour sessions over a four week period. The key thing that struck me was despite a level of scepticism before we started, every person turned up to every session and their comments at the end were overwhelmingly positive. They did the homework of practice and reading and saw noticeable gain in their levels of stress, concentration and organisation of their work flow… Richard Stevens, Managing Director

ANZ Bank

Glenda facilitated a corporate session for me with great success! I engaged Glenda to help with a session regards stress levels of the team. Glenda was certainly able to provide insights as to how to achieve this. We found Glenda to be very engaging; the content was interesting, relevant and practical. It was a fantastic session. Fleur Garcia, Merchant Business Solutions

Orion Health

… Glenda was very pleasant to deal with and always reliable. We would be happy to recommend her and have her back in again, for another seminar. Louise Francis, Orion Health

Individuals - over the years:

“…encouraging the group to connect with each other. You have a real gift in the way you make the space for all os us to that.” Deborah

“…you light up the room and your positiveness is infectious. So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for being the teacher that made me understand the beginning of mindfulness.” Leigh

“…encouraged kindness and compassion which is a much more helpful and positive way to deal with difficulties… I feel like I have turned a corner in coping with a lifetime of struggles.” Jill

“The information presented throughout the course was well supported with a balance of science and personal sharing. The meditations and weekly tasks were manageable and beneficial in deepening the concepts discussed each week. Glenda’s presentation is cheerful, empathetic, and engaging. She has the ability to present science concepts in a fluid and comprehensible manner. I have noticed many positive behavioural changes relevant to my relationships as well as other areas of my life.” Amanda

“The instructor was helpful and knowledgeable. The course made me actually look within myself.” Arnie

“Most valuable? The teaching! In particular, the way Glenda interacts with her students and gives freely of her own experiences, is really helpful to understand the course content.” Justine

“As a teacher myself I’m interested in the teaching techniques of others. In the first session Glenda used the sharing of what people already ‘knew’ about mindfulness to add to our knowledge and to correct misinterpretations. Doing this meant we learned lots from each other with Glenda having to lecture…” Deborah

“I especially enjoyed the way Glenda explained some of the science behind the focus areas, such as the biology of the brain or work in the field of psychology.” James

Hi Glenda. Sorry just one more thing to tell you. I know you are the most inspiring person I have ever met. You light up a room and your positiveness is infectious. So from the bottom of my heart I thank you for being the teacher that made me understand the beginning of mindfulness. - Leigh
