Lexie Green, marketing coordinator

“The course helps you not only to relax, but provides clarity of mind and shows how to undo the negative programming of the mind built up over a lifetime.”

Richard Gough, university academic

Liv’s technique is excellent and her engaging, clear manner of communicating was superlative. The techniques I have learnt have enabled me to be more mindful and relaxed. Liv’s teaching and guiding capacity was fantastic and I know I will be able to replicate and practice in the future. Thank you so much Liv. You have a true gift.”

Louisa Di Censo, manager, policy & service development

 “This  course was a wonderful introduction to mindfulness & relaxation techniques. Within the first week I was already catching myself rushing or stressing when it was just not necessary, but an obvious habit.  I now feel more equipped to handle the every day ups & downs with calmness and clarity. Thanks Liv!”

Julia Redfern, Osteopath

“Liv’s relaxation course is an hour and a bit of bliss, contemplation and solitude every week.  The journey can sometimes take you to unexpected places but Liv is a trustworthy guide.”

Matthew, consultant

“Life was asking questions and and I was resisting changes on the horizon. I now view all this quite differently and feel much more prepared to move on & accept change. You have had a wonderful influence on my world Liv, thank you.”

Rachel, Youth Re-engagement Co-ordinator

“Liv is an absolute delight.  Her course helped me create a space for stillness and calm, with lasting effect.”

Rebecca, Healthcare Worker

“I stumbled across Liv at a stressful time in my life. We embarked on some one-on-one tuition in progressive relaxation & yoga.  This turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself.  Liv’s intuition, gentleness, good humour and intelligence made our sessions together a real joy, which refreshed my spirit.  Liv has set me up with a own yoga routine and personalised stress-relief ‘tool-kit’. I look forward to joining in on her group yoga & progressive relaxation classes to continue my journey.”

Meg Moate, lawyer, CSIRO, business development

Liv created a safe, peaceful  haven, a respite from stress.  She showed us how to create that haven for ourselves and how to take it with us wherever we went. Her voice is a powerful force for peace.”

Mary, social worker.

Liv’s consistent care for my comfort at the beginning of each session set the atmosphere for immediate relaxation as I knew I was in a safe place to allow my nagging mind to let go, simply & easily melting to her soothing voice. The result was great peace that has stayed with me to this day. Over time, it has allowed me to move to a greater understanding within, one that I can re-access when required.

Melody Jansz, director, SPA People

“Many thanks to Liv for a very beneficial & supportive exploration of relaxation and stress. I highly recommend this course to anyone who feels there is more to life than the rat race & wants to learn to unwind and appreciate life more.”

Nick Wadsley, Engineer

“Liv’s comments and tips after each of our experiences were extremely helpful and eye-opening.”

Ramona Baumgartner, project coordinator
