What clients say about my mindfulness programmes:
“Very worthwhile and I was definitely more productive in work on a Monday afternoon. Great subject to be offered by great place to work!” Workshop attendee.
“Ellen facilitated a half day Wellness session for our 2016 Department Workshop, compromising of 40 high achieving Enterprise Account Managers. While there is always a risk associated bringing a different way of thinking in to the corporate environment my initial concerns were soon overcome by Ellen’s ability to make others feel at ease and her ability to bring both a Scientific and Spiritual balance to the conversation. Ellen seamlessly engaged all different personality types and view-points to bring about meaningful discussions around work-life balance and dealing with stress in the workplace. We even had time for two team meditations, that was a first! General feedback from the team was excellent and it’s something I often refer back to in team meetings so there’s plenty to take away.” Mark Henry E-Commerce and Payments Industry.
“As a group we thoroughly benefited from our sessions with Ellen. She has an amazing way of making people feel at ease to ensure they get the most out of her sessions, it didn’t matter if it was your first time experiencing this or you had done it multiple times everyone got something out of it.” Ruairí , Paddy Power
“I really enjoyed it and found it very beneficial and hope to do so in the future” Workshop attendee.
“I really enjoyed it just need to start bring it home!” Workshop attendee.
