Teacher at Enter Mindfulness
"The training with Patrizia and Helen was truly fantastic! I loved having 2 such experienced teachers leading the course. I felt I learned about mindfulness and meditation much more in depth, and I also gained some practical knowledge on how to lead and faciliate groups. After the training, I felt very confident in my ability to teach mindfulness and have built up a great online business around it, including leading 8 week MBCT group programs. The venue was also gorgeous; very peaceful and quiet, yet extremely welcoming.I would absolutely recommend this course - it's perfect for anyone who wants to become a professional mindfulness teacher or add mindfulness to their list of skills in their current role.”
'Having finished the course, I am much more confident in my abilities in teaching mindfulness. I loved working with Patrizia, Monty and Helen, who gave lots of support and guidance throughout. Their expertise and years experience in the field was evident, and I appreciated the depth of knowledge and authenticity that underpinned the course. It was really apparent that they took a personal interest and cared over each of the students on the course. The eight week on line course I had done previously felt very superficial and impersonal in comparison. I decided to go for this course as opposed to others that are available because I wanted a meaningful journey that was guided by teachers with real knowledge and experience in the field and I was aware that Patrizia was a published author in mindfulness. To anyone who is not sure about the course, I would say don't hesitate. You will learn an awful lot with an opportunity to work with teachers who have extensive knowledge and experience and who really care about the field of mindfulness.Key was the level of commitment and care shown by Patrizia, Helen, and Monty throughout. Thank you all.'
"Helen and Patrizia's training gave me everything I needed to get started with my own courses. I can't thank them enough.”
"Dr Patrizia Collard is an expert in her field. Her knowledge and understanding of Mindfulness makes her a leading teacher and mentor in this field. I am deeply grateful for the lessons I've gained from her.”
