“Sally was brilliant… I found her demeanour very soothing and reassuring.”

Gaby, November 2020

“Sally did a wonderful job of making everyone of the course feel at ease, and in creating a safe and supportive environment. She was a very calm and warm teacher, and really encouraged kindness to self throughout the course. Sally enabled a real sense of group connection despite the course being carried out remotely.”

Ruth, November 2020

“Sally was incredibly calm and sensitive to the group and presented everything in a really clear way. I felt safe in her hands to explore meditation more deeply without feeling self-conscious.”

Kate, April 2019

“Sally was a great communicator. I felt she created a very non-judgmental space, which immensely helped me relax and form a bond with the group and materials.”

Hannah, April 2019

“Sally obviously practices what she teaches as I felt immediately at ease due to her  calm and thoughtful approach and ability to engage a group that had never met  before in a series of helpful, practical and enjoyable mindful exercises.”

Amanda, February 2018
