About

the essence focuses on a culture of care for ourselves, for our relationships and for the workplace. Irrespective of role or responsibilities, life’s challenges can inhibit our ability to be effective and to be well. With a combination of science-based tools and techniques, the essence helps build understanding of our capacity for building and sustaining self-regulation. By combining the power of the heart and mind, we are able to more effectively access our human potential and be the best that we can be. That then enables us to contribute more positively to our work and home environments.
