Testimonials

Mike delivered an extremely informative and valuable session for Quinn Legal staff. The information he gave was relevant and insightful, especially in a business context, and was easy to comprehend. The practice is something that many of our staff are hoping to continue in their own time. Thank you for raising this to our attention.

The topics Mike discussed in the session were very relevant and relatable to everyday life. The session brought great value to me.

The scientific rationale and research was very interesting, and gave credence to what can sometimes be thought of as a ‘hippy dippy’ idea. The science and examples that Mike gave really resonated.

Mike was an engaging and informative presenter. I appreciated the presentation and love that we work somewhere that focusses on building soft skills like this.

The science of mindfulness was very interesting but very straightforward it would seem.  I am sure he has a much more in-depth relationship with how the brain works – he had a great delivery and kept everyone focused.

Thanks for the course. I found it very enjoyable, interesting and helpful.

I like Mike’s authenticity and the fact that he is easy to relate to. His credibility in what he does comes from his ability to use it to change the personal difficulties he experienced in his own life. This shows how he has used Mindfulness to make a difference in his own life. I very much enjoyed the course and can think of others who could gain benefit.

The course has provided me with an awareness and therefore a choice of what I bring to my mind and the ability to step out of a situation/thought and evaluate things and make a conscious choice. I can truly say that it has been a fascinating insight into Mindfulness that I will use for the rest of my life.

I’ve picked up some very useful techniques to cope with some of the emotions I have been experiencing. I would definitely be interested in attending further sessions and have recommended Mike to friends.

I really enjoyed the course. I though that the opportunity to take some time to “brain train” was a useful exercise and something that I need to give myself more time to do in such a hectic world. It was certainly a calming session from the chaos of work.

I have felt that the process has been worthwhile and has helped me ‘live in the moment’ and not in the past.  Also, one of the exercises has helped me to sleep better.  I have definitely been less of a stress head since I started this a few weeks ago.

I have has a text from my partner today commenting on how the Mindfulness training seems to be working well for me as I have a different attitude. I think the ability to take a step back from situations and my usual thoughts means I can view things differently. I have really enjoyed it and will definitely be using the techniques.

A totally new  but worthwhile experience. Mike was very professional, approachable and his delivery was first class.

Mindfulness is changing my life. Realising that my thoughts (in their current condition) are not necessarily me, that they are not who I am, was quite an overwhelming and freeing awakening. Mike’s presentation was clear and comfortable and I felt free to go with whatever emotion or reaction that was stirred.  I was especially encouraged by Mike’s honesty about his own past experiences, attesting to the certainty that you can change the way you think, that you can get rid of the chatter for good and ultimately tame the mind, which could open up all sorts of good things.
