Rick Russo School Counsellor

St Pius X College, Chatswood (25 years’ experience in the field)

“Recently, our team of EREA (Edmund Rice Education Australia) School Counsellors and Psychologists, were treated to an opportunity to attend a “Mindfulness for Teachers’ Health,” workshop as part of our Well-Being focus for self-care.

Certainly, this workshop was a real highlight for us all, as we walked away from the session feeling more empowered and determined to implement a variety of mindfulness techniques in our local school situations. The presenter, Alison Hutchens was able to equip us all with many helpful practical styles/techniques of mindfulness strategies which we all able to take back to our own practices to assist our students’ to better deal with the stresses of being a student, particularly in a world affected by the increased use of technology and its adverse effect on mental health. Alison’s style was most engaging, and her knowledge on the topic extremely well researched.

I have no hesitation in recommending her to your next teachers’/parents’ workshop on the place of Mindfulness techniques in enhancing well-being in your school community. An outstanding presenter in every respect.”
