Sarah, from Essex 

"I loved the residential MBSR Teacher Training Course in the Lake District and am delighted to have finished my case study and received my certificate 9 months later   


Jilly is a wonderful teacher who embodies mindfulness and offers insights & guidance in an expert way.


I would wholeheartedly recommend her as a Mindfulness Teacher."

Charlotte from Lancashire

“I decided I wanted a career in teaching mindfulness and Jilly from Inessentia had been recommended to me.  I took a residential teacher training course in Grasmere and I have never looked back.  Jilly’s style of teaching was comprehensive and easy to understand.  Throughout the whole process Jilly was only a phone call away for any help and motivation – and still is now that I am qualified.    I am now successfully teaching mindfulness with confidence that the course I chose was absolutely the right one.   We have follow up meetings so you never feel alone.  I can absolutely recommend Jilly to start your mindful journey.”
