Top testimonial

“I’m not going to lie, I was reluctant to be signed up for this programme. For context, I’m a Primary Headteacher with reason to be concerned about heart health and I wasn’t keen to know the worst about my heart.  That, however, is not what the programme has been all about.  I have come away with a greater understanding of the impact of my heart health and my emotional state; a greater capacity to redress the balance when things are stressful and a new found willingness to share with my colleagues. It’s been enlightening – and I find myself to be largely ‘coherent’.” Headteacher JUNIOR SCHOOL ‍ “I found the sessions to be highly effective and uncovering the science behind emotional responses really helped deal with stressful situations. This is not what you would expect from a well-being session, and I would highly recommend them.  I am continuing to apply what I have learnt on a daily basis.” Headteacher PRIMARY SCHOOL
