Alison taught the team techniques on mindfulness over a lunchtime session as part of our wellbeing initiatives. Our employees' feedback has been great. People have said they had the best sleep in a long time and the session made a very positive difference to their day. We really enjoyed the energy, tips and delivery by Alison. Great way to engage your employees and make a difference to their wellbeing.

Recently, our team of EREA (Edmund Rice Education Australia) School Counsellors and Psychologists were treated to an opportunity to attend a Mindfulness for Teachers’ Health workshop as part of our well-being focus for self-care. Certainly, this workshop was a real highlight for us all, as we walked away from the session feeling more empowered and determined to implement a variety of mindfulness techniques in our local school situations. The presenter, Alison Hutchens, was able to equip us all with many helpful practical styles/techniques of mindfulness strategies, which we all able to take back to our own practices to assist our students to better deal with the stresses of being a student, particularly in a world affected by the increased use of technology and its adverse effect on mental health. Alison’s style was most engaging, and her knowledge on the topic extremely well researched. I have no hesitation in recommending her to your next teachers’/parents’ workshop on the place of mindfulness techniques in enhancing well-being in your school community. An outstanding presenter in every respect.
