An important function of our association is to provide members with opportunities for professional development. School counselors are busy managing large caseloads and often experience compassion fatigue, so we need to manage our own stress to be able to help others. We invited Danielle to talk about mindfulness and self-care. Her presentation last year was so popular that we invited Danielle to do an encore. Even more counselors participated in this year’s event, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Throughout their lively and informative presentation, we learned quick and practical tips and techniques – things we can do at school and at home to be more mindful and focused. We learned prevention and intervention techniques to help us get through our day – so we can then help others get through their day. Danielle and her team are knowledgeable with great chemistry and coordination. We are grateful for their presentation and we highly recommend D&G Wellness!
Independent School Management
We greatly appreciated working with D&G Wellness to support our audience with up-to-date mental health and wellness trends. The team was always willing to tailor their content depending on our needs. Their presentation style is conversational and engaging–they make you feel like you’re sitting in the same room even though they presented on Zoom. Overall, I would highly recommend collaborating with D&G Wellness if you’re looking for approachable presenters who deliver information in digestible nuggets.
