About the facilitator
Mica Montana is an accredited mindfulness teacher, research psychologist, freelance writer, poet and mental health speaker passionate about creating safe spaces for people to experience and express themselves for the facilitation of growth and good wellbeing.
Mica's passion for this work was born out of her personal experience of being sectioned due to an episode of psychosis at the age of 21. This was a transformative experience for Mica that propelled her to self-publish her first poetry collection ‘When Daisies Talk’ and to begin sharing her knowledge from her professional and personal experiences to help others.
What people say
In the time of a pandemic with a young family and limited support the themes of being present, self-care and addressing my own needs were timely and extremely helpful. Mica was insightful and delivered activities which taught us to be present in addition to helping identify areas of growth. If anyone has the opportunity to do a workshop with Mica I would really encourage them to do it.
I learnt how to live not just exist in my body by listening to my inner sensations and how my body reacts to things. The sessions have helped me maximise everyday life and have helped me find joy in the mundane. I will most definitely be implementing all that I learned during our sessions!
Working with Mica was an incredible experience. She was patient, intentional and fully present during the preparation and facilitation segments of my organisations leadership programme. Her facilitation style is well thought out and responsive to people in the room. She gave generous attention to the needs and curiosities of each delegate and made them feel seen.
The space was safe and non-judgemental and I took away lessons from each week that are helping me stop and be mindful even in the middle of a busy day. Mica gave me space to think and process and carried me through the sessions at my own pace. I always left feeling very relaxed and at ease. I will be using what I learnt when I notice my body carrying stress or tension.
