“My 12yo son attended one-on-one sessions with Jacqui whilst she introduced him to the art of meditation and walked him through the ‘Greatfulness’ program.
Over the course of a few weeks I noticed a change in my son. He seemed calmer, less anxious and overall just happier. All the incidents that happen in the playground and classroom which would normally have upset him, he took in his stride. She helped my son discover things about himself and see all of his strengths giving him little ‘tricks’ to deal with anxious moments. Jacqui has a beautiful, warm and friendly nature and relates well to children of all ages. She has this knack to make them feel instantly at ease. For a 12yr old boy to look forward to his sessions with Jacqui is a testament in itself. She made the sessions “fun”. Jacqui listened to my son, spoke words of encouragement and gave him the time to express himself. She has a deep understanding of meditation and all its benefits having been on the inner journey herself. She’s compassionate, a gifted communicator and a natural teacher. I have no hesitation in recommending Jacqui to adults and children who are seeking some blissfulness in their lives.”
