Testimonials

Following a package of training and support from ‘Colour Your World’, we have embedded short mindfulness sessions into our everyday practice throughout school. Children and adults alike appreciate and understand the importance of taking five minutes out of every day to reflect, listen to their minds and bodies and learn strategies that help them to cope in a busy world. In one term, we have already seen a positive difference in the confidence and mindset of the children.

 [Following a recent Ofsted inspection, Ofsted provided the following quote in their report of the school, based on the observations that they made. The school have implemented school-wide changes taken from the Colour Your World training they received several weeks prior to their Ofsted inspection, to improve overall staff and child wellbeing, self-confidence and resilience. We are grateful to the school for sharing this direct quote from their report in relation to the service we provided in September 2018- CYW]

“….there is an ethos of care and mutual respect and a very positive learning environment. Pupils demonstrate self-confidence and a love of learning.” Ofsted, December 2018

"Rachel is an inspirational trainer. She is so positive and infectious and her Mindfulness course was a joy to attend. All delegates loved the course and it is refreshing to be trained by someone so obviously passionate about Mindfulness and Mental Health. Rachel’s conviction and dedication to impact positive, lasting results via her course was brilliant and thought provoking. I couldn’t recommend Rachel highly enough".
Richard Smith, Director at Eyears, Birmingham

"All Year 6 teachers and Headteachers know how some children will feel anxiety as they approach SATs. We all put in place opportunities to reassure but nothing we have done compares to the "mindfulness" sessions completed with Rachel Ashcroft.  There is a visible uplift in the children's confidence born out of their genuine self-belief. They also have a wealth of strategies for dealing with stressful situations from instant breathing techniques to deep, contemplative meditation - skills that will provide them with inner strength well beyond SATs week. We are all most grateful for Rachel for this work with our children".

- E. Regan, Headteacher, Great Bridge Primary School, West Midlands.

"It's been a real pleasure working with Rachel on our Holiday Camp workshops this February. The feedback from our Head Office and at our Holiday Camp has been unanimous - each child has come away feeling calmer and is able to understand their feelings in greater detail. We would highly recommend Colour Your World to anyone that asks!"

– Amy Cunningham, Founder and Director of the Strings Club
