PAUSE is about bringing mindfulness into people's life so they can find their own answers by diving deep into themselves, holding their breath - like fearless divers in the depths of the ocean - to bring back to the surface the unique and luminescent pearl of their true self.
"Thank you so much for the Mindfulness session. I have spoken to several members of staff and family about it since and a couple of those colleagues who didn't attend the session have expressed an interest in talking to you and finding out more. I think you are courageous and inspiring. I definitely have feelings of anxiousness which stem from the 'fight or flight' response and the tips to 're-set' are very helpful. Both the breathe/release /smile exercise and the taking 2 minutes out using the water in a cup were effective. I particularly liked the reference to the pearl - I certainly try to cover over negative experiences. The decoration of the bark was also relaxing. Please continue with your sessions and I wish you all the very best with them."
"I thoroughly enjoyed your session and admired your honesty about your journey that you shared with us. It has certainly made me feel that I am not alone with my own story. I found the tasks you allowed us to take part in really useful."
"Thank you very much for the mindfulness session on Friday. I really appreciated the opportunity to find out more about this technique, and its positive effect on mental wellbeing."
"Thank you so much for your interesting talk on mindfulness. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will try to do the fight, flight, freeze exercises each day!"
"it was a really good event. Thank you so much. You have suffered similarly to myself. My brother took his own life 6 years ago. I feel your pain and the grief that nealry destroys you. I have been trying to put into practice the methods you use and I am sure they will help me."
