What People Are Saying…

Tony recently delivered a 2-hour presentation on mindfulness and psychological resilience to 50 of our staff at our large non-profit agency. Staff’s response to the training was overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic! Here are some of their comments:

“I love that it was informative, yet not too much, with a pinch of practical exercises. Love the voice and word choice in the presentation. Very inviting!”

“What I learned today is not only going to help me with my clients, but in my personal life!”

“Thank you! This training would be supportive of ALL public mental health employees!!”

“Can’t wait to use these techniques daily!”

“Presentation was very relevant and interesting. Even felt relaxed during the activities!”

 Moreover, I found Tony to be thorough, organized, and helpful when preparing for the training and the delivery of continuing education units for our licensed staff. Tony is not only a respectful, dedicated and caring trainer; he truly lives what he teaches. The entire experience was a positive one, and we are looking forward to having him back soon!
