Chelsea you walked into a room of sceptics and transformed them. From the conversations I was involved in last night you were a highlight of the day and by starting with senior leaders listening and thinking about themselves we will hopefully see a trickle down effect! Congratulations again and thank you for really shining a light for all in the room on the importance of their own mind and body health.
I just wanted to say how amazing, moving, emotional and honest your session was today. Thank you so much for sharing all of your vulnerable and powerful self with us today - it was the highlight of the day!

OLD / NSW Local Purchasing Officer
Absolutely Inspiring! Chelsea is educated, knowledgeable and extremely passionate about educating others to have a healthy mind. I will certainly be adapting the tools she has provided me to create health and wellbeing in work my life and my personal life. Thank you again, was so great to have the opportunity to attend both of your sessions!
Team Leader, Local Purchasing
Chelsea, I would like to thank you for the Mind Training session today, the information and simple to follow Ideas you imparted on myself and the others in attendance was fantastic. I know for me just those simple little tasks of not trying to do 2-3 things at once (even though I thought I was very capable) has made an enormous difference already. The having a break after 60-90 minutes of focused work has given me much more clarity on the rest of my day. I can’t wait to sit and just meditate and focus on what I want to be, I am sure this will benefit me greatly. I look forward to your next session to be able to report my progress.
Operations Manager, Southern States
