Chelsea was absolutely amazing. The entire presentation was full of useful life changing information. I received nothing but positive feedback from the attendees and people are still talking about it. Chelsea is so down to earth, warm and positive. I hope I get an opportunity to do more sessions with Chelsea in the future.

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.
Senior Manager, Westpac

Chelsea was FANTASTIC! She brought insight and tools to help kick-start focusing on the present and tools to bring a more positive you into your life. Thank you so much for talking to us Chelsea! I really enjoyed both sessions and am going to my best to practice mindfulness and good gut health (......after the bag of Malteasers of course. Good luck with your big talk tomorrow and I hope to see you again soon!
Today’s Seminar with Chelsea on Mindfulness, was so empowering. Hearing Chelsea’s story and her passion and knowledge for the mind makes it really easy to relate to her.
OLD / NSW Local Purchasing Officer, National Tiles
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, National Tiles
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, National Tiles
