Success Stories


We have seen such a phenomenal change all around.

We have introduced many things in the past, but nothing has had the impact that HeartMath has had. HeartMath has taught us to build resilience to stress and create a more easy environment in which the children and teachers can thrive.


Alice Ashwell
HeartMath Coach

The students all reported an improvement in their attitude towards and ability to study for and write exams. The HeartMath techniques enabled them to calm themselves and release stress before, during and after exams. This had helped them to study, focus (concentrate), think, remember what they had learnt, work more efficiently…


Nursery School

Dealing with children can be overwhelming. Before I learnt the HeartMath techniques, it was difficult to keep a cool head in challenging situations, but now because of the HeartMath techniques I use, its amazing how I have greater flexibility and can make better choices. HeartMath has definitely changed how I deal with situations every day.
