School- Including school work, activities, relationships, safety and more. In these first few questions some of the answers may be obvious and some you might have to stop and think a bit. Answering them might help you start to notice more about your day, and school; how you feel, or what you might want to focus on more often. Then the recordings that follow on the website can support your new intentions and goals. Assessing yourself and then creating new intentions is key to how the brain works!

This enquiry is private, and personal. For that reason, we are thrilled to offer communication tools on this website. Which means some of you might choose to practice speaking and listening around these themes. Safe, supportive communication is a valuable tool, we suggest you use it.

After Completing Your Assessment When you are complete, look back at your results- If most of your answers are on the side of “Don’t Agree” your score suggests an overall stress or dissatisfaction with your current state of health and overall wellness. We recommend you work on the initial components of Breathe and Relax. Select some shorter recordings from those areas, to build a lasting relaxation response which will allow you to progress to other more complete recordings. If your assessment shows most of your answers as on the side of “Agree”, it suggests you are in a balanced overall state of health and wellness. You may choose to select from any and all of the recordings on the website.
