About – Emma the founder of Mind Set Grow

Emma is a mother of two young girls and she works as a student support liaison officer at a comprehensive co-ed high school in the Lower North Shore. As a child Emma struggled with anxiety which continued into early adulthood.

Emma then discovered Mindfulness and it was the one treatment that really helped her to manage her anxiety. Her only regret was that she wished she had access to mindfulness at a younger age.

Emmas experience as a mother and working with young people in schools made her keenly aware of the pressures and stresses faced daily by students, parents and educators alike. This prompted Emma to become an educator in mindfulness.

In 2018 she completed studies with the Mindful Schools organisation based in the US. Today Emma is 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.

Emma is also currently running the MindSetGrow Mindfulness in schools program with the year 7 cohort in a major high school on the lower north shore.
