“The arrival of mindfulness to the western world has been a revelation. It has enabled us for the first time in decades, to have meaningful and beneficial conversations about the mind – and it’s role in enhancing our quality of life. Mindfulness has also enabled us to develop an array of techniques that can help in many areas of our life – I like to call these mindful techniques.

Many of these techniques I have learned in my two years of researching best practice in wellbeing, and in my role as a mental wellbeing explorer. All the teachings and techniques are evidence-based from the fields of positive psychology, well-being, and mindfulness.

I have used them in my own personal life and introduced them to many of the adult students who attend The Waverley Academy college. They have helped reduce stress, produce positivity and improve performance and results. The same techniques can be used in many areas of your life – and with a little practice – can be passed on to family, friends, and children

“I have incorporated them into a unique and engaging talk that will leave you energized – and equipped with a practical toolkit for health, wellbeing, and happiness. “
