WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Mindful Magic Founder
“Nicola's training is informative and eye opening. I learnt more about neurodiversity than I did in teacher training! She flipped a lot on it's head for me and raised a lot of questions around how we approach every child we work with, and how we view ourselves as well. I'd like more of these valuable sessions for my mentors. A huge thank you!”
''It was really informative and got me thinking a lot about my students, my own children, myself, my friends and family. And how I can be more open minded to provide the best support to those around me.''
“This was the most useful SEN training that I've had since teacher training! I identified with a lot of your experiences. I thought as a teacher I knew what ADHD and autism was. How wrong was I!
I feel so passionately about re-training teachers about what ADHD actually is. I can think back to several girls I taught who must’ve had ADHD-I but it was never picked up because the knowledge just wasn’t there.”
“We have found mindfulness with Nicola an enriching experience. Nicola's talent for teaching enables her to unlock the power of mindfulness in a thoughtful and easy to understand style which is tailored to the needs of each student.
Nicola is engaging, friendly, and funny. She brings joy and laughter into her lessons, and has shown us great kindness. She is a natural with adults and children alike, and can keep her students seamlessly engaged in their mindfulness practice.
Learning and practicing mindfulness with Nicola has been both a fascinating and enriching experience. I do not hesitate in recommending her to anyone who is interested in living more mindfully.”

''This little boy today, I have been with him in many different sessions. He is all over the place, doesn't settle, gets disruptive! But today with you he was sitting really quietly, listening to the story, totally focussed and he said ' I feel calm', as well as other lovely things he said about your session. I do hope he comes back next time. Actually, for the other sessions today, he also seemed calmer and more able to focus- at least for a couple of minutes at a time! But you had his attention all through. Well done!''
“What the support group has given me is a safe space to share my lived experience as a parent, the challenging, but also enlightening moments. It brings me comfort to know that my vulnerability is received by other parents without judgement or disconnected sympathy, and more times than not even shared (even if our contexts are all unique). Sharing this space has brought me more tangible benefit than consultations with professions or self-study, because there's simply something about a supportive community that can give you hope and confidence like nothing anything else can.”
