"Nick facilitated the first Mindup.org SEL (social and emotional learning) pilot program of 'The Hawn Foundation', at our school, Nightingale in Hackney, London, U.K.As a principal, Nick passionately took the role on all facets of training the teachers and implementing the program (Kindergarten - Year 6) to our whole school and teaching staff.As it became so popular, our school became a beacon school for all London schools and other schools around the U.K and parts of Europe, to come and watch Nick teach the program with his students.
Due to his passion, he was offered a position to continue to train the program with 'The Hawn Foundation'.
Wow! I’m so proud that he has succeeded in training to thousands of schools, health and psychological services around the world"

" Nick was extremely professional, patient and compassionate towards to our 7 year old daughter,
Daisy who has autism and displays challenging behaviour. He was able to use innovative and creative activities to help her which gave clear set boundaries. This has helped our daughter and us as a family. If you want a professional, kind hearted, and fun practitioner, I would recommend Nick!".

" Nick has helped our 8 year old son Mark, who has ADD (Attention deficit disorder). Mark was given the skills to help him to "calm down' and self regulate his emotions. This has really helped his concentration skills during classes at school which has also helped him to also reduce his anxiety and anger issues."
