I've always wondered about meditation, and this book walked me through several easy ways I can incorporate mindfulness and meditation into my day - its brought a sense of peace and tranquility that I never expected - a real treat!Review Via Amazon
‘Emma is so lovely to work with, really authentic and straightforward in her approach to teaching meditation, and gave the practice and techniques a lot of context during the session which really helped everyone to engage. The session set our team up beautifully for the day and I look forward to working with her again in the near future.’Deb, Head of HR at The Future Lab London
'Emma was a breath of fresh air, - I came out of the session so relaxed and I'm definitely going to take some of those techniques home and practice them. I really enjoyed the session - I left feeling very relaxed, and think I will definitely find a way to learn more and to practice more regularly. Emma was really warm and friendly and created an atmosphere that made it welcoming for those who had never tried meditation before. I thought the session was extremely helpful. I liked that Emma made sure she was aware of our various levels of skill at meditation and therefore made me feel at ease. Thank you, Emma'Gill Duffy, shares team feedback from Amnesty International
In August 2013 I became a volunteer for West Essex Mind Get Into Reading (GIR) therapy groups. Emma Mills was the line manager at this time. The team was happy and friendly but at the same time assertive and professional. It was clear that this effective balance of efficiency and benevolence was the result of Emma’s competence as a loyal and committed line manager. Emma was passionate about the GIR groups. She had an extensive knowledge of literature and always supplied an interesting variation of materials. Emma’s enthusiasm for the benefits of GIR was infectious. Her training sessions for the staff were incredibly helpful and insightful and unlike any, I have experienced since she moved on from this position. It was a pleasure working for and with Emma and I feel I have gained both professionally and personally as a result.Samantha Walden, MIND
