"I strongly believe that children should be taught coping strategies so they can handle challenging situations and this is exactly what Natalie covered in her mindfulness lessons. The children looked forward to seeing her each week, her calm presence had a very positive effect on them. I think they also enjoyed sharing their emotions. Natalie helped everyone in the class feel relaxed. I felt disappointed when I heard the 8 weeks were nearly over!"

Early Years Program Teacher

"Thank you Natalie, your mindfulness sessions were engaging, and your manner with the children was wonderful. You spoke to them and with them. Each week the content was clear and meaningful. The children obviously learned a lot – shown by their use of the language you were using and general ability to think more about their actions. You have also helped me personally and professionally. Often when teaching I am mentally juggling a million things at once, and being conscious of taking the time to just stop, breathe and focus on what is happening right now was very calming."

Counselling Langwarrin

"Natalie has excellent skills in counselling young people in informal, spontaneous, highly volatile and unpredictable situations. She was able to creatively engage them in therapeutic processing and conversations around mental health, goals, emotional regulation and gently challenging their presentation."
