The timing of this course was perfect for me. I had been in receipt of counselling so this was the icing on the cake. It put me back where I needed to be, mindfully. For example, I had been experiencing periods of anxiety during the night, now I have the strategies to defuse this and return to rest. Being a practicing Buddhist, it built on my already established meditation practice, and actually enhanced it. My awareness during meditation had been developing over the past 2 years, but acquiring a mindfulness practice as well has taken me to another level.
I appreciated the peace and stillness which Jo created within each session. She created a womb-like space for each of us to explore what was going on within ourselves. I did feel at times that I would have liked more time for us to discuss our home practices, but on reflection, that would have taken time from the session, and possibly changed the energy of the space.
I would definitely recommend this course to others and have done so. Thank you Jo for providing me with the skills and tools so that I can move bravely into the next phase of my life. I have already started filling that me-shaped hole!Sue, Derbyshire
Thanks for the mindfulness course I really enjoyed coming. I certainly feel much less stressed and in a better place mentally than I did at the start of course. I also feel that I now have a lot of useful tools to use when the going gets tough.Caroline, Derbyshire

"Jo helped me to challenge some of my thoughts and face some of my emotions to get me into a position to consider my options for the future. Jo has great capacity to listen deeply and reflect and ask all the right questions and all on a lovely walk. I would definitely recommend Jo for Coaching."Sara, Derby
