‘Jakob came into our lives when our teenage son was experiencing many challenges including risky behaviour and conflict with all around him including us as parents. It is hard to describe the impact that this was having on him and the family, but as a family we were in crisis. Fortunately, when our son sought help, Jakob was there for him. Jakob through a considered and professional approach gained our son’s confidence, was able to build a rapport that helped him open up. Jakob has a incredible ability to develop trust and coach adolescents through challenging times. Through weekly and ongoing sessions with Jakob, our son developed confidence in himself and us, our relationships rebuilt, he accepted responsibility for his behaviour and hope returned. We are grateful for Jakob’s guidance during this time and recommend him highly to coach adolescents through difficult times’

'Coaching adolescents through difficult times'

'Jakob's Mindfulness package was absolutely amazing. I'd already had a bit of experience with meditation, especially visualisation, but I did always find mindfulness more challenging because I kept getting distracted. I have always had an overactive mind and find switching off at the end of the day my biggest struggle. I decided to do the mindfulness package , which involved four, one-on-one sessions with Jakob to focus purely on learning mindfulness skills. He came to my place which was really convenient, and he tailored everything to my needs and my level. We covered so many things, from retouching on basic techniques that needed refreshing, to learning completely new tools that I can use in my day to day life to help with stress management and relaxation. He taught me that it's normal to get distracted and to just observe my thoughts and not get frustrated. He gave me homework and recordings to do between sessions, and at the end of it all I walked away with my own custom recordings of prompted mediations that I can use everyday, based on what I personally need. I got so much out of it and highly recommend Jakob'
