Tutor: Emma Otoole

My name is Emma and I’m the founder of Mind Set Grow I'm a mother of two young girls and work as a student support liaison officer at a comprehensive co-ed high school on the Lower North Shore. As a child I struggled with anxiety which continued into early adulthood. Then I discovered Mindfulness and it was the one treatment that really helped me to manage my anxiety. My only regret is that I wished I had access to mindfulness at a younger age. This prompted me to become an educator in mindfulness. In 2018 I completed studies with the Mindful Schools organisation based in the US. Today I am passionate about empowering students with mindfulness techniques to help young people to manage anxiety and show them we can all rewrite the stories we tell ourselves.
