By Taking the Mindfulness Diploma through the Mindful Space Wellbeing Company has not only enhanced my own practice of mindfulness and meditation, but has given me a deeper level of understanding and with it, brought a confidence that has meant I have been able to help more people bring calm, inner peace and harmony in to their lives.
I cannot recommend Gail’s online and attendance learning space she creates highly enough. I have found her approach the perfect balance of factual information and creative thought. Thanks to her teaching I have taken time to read widely and gained so much more than certificates on my therapy room wall. I cannot thank her enough for the opportunities for growth her courses provide.
I loved studying with Gail, the atmosphere was always warm and welcoming. She was professional, friendly and approachable and I value her opinion and wisdom
I thoroughly enjoyed learning what Gail shared and it was very interesting. Thank you so much for offering this course online and your guidance along the way
I was lucky enough to attend mindfulness training with Gail and it was amazing! Not only did it help to develop my own personal well-being but I was confident enough to deliver some sessions to start back in school and develop a scheme of work to teach my own class
