“Jo Gibbs’ Treat sessions allow us to rejuvenate, recharge and to just be still. As busy healthcare staff, it is so important for us to reflect on our wellbeing and take time out. Jo gives us permission to ‘Treat’ ourselves. This is so important.”

“I just wanted to thank you for another great address to us at the start of the year during the PD days.  Last year your dual act was excellent.  I always value what you say, but this year in particular, your honesty, openness and empathy was outstanding.  It is because you are unafraid to show your vulnerability and that is so helpful to so many people, because you are also showing a way forward.”

“I don’t think the team would have made it through the last 6 months if it wasn’t for you and your amazing program – to see the change in the team with all the adversity and unexpected change they’ve faced has been absolutely incredible.”

“I’ve been a part of face to face Treat sessions, used the app and now experienced Treat over Zoom. Feeling connected to others and yourself in 2020 is no small feat; Treat does this and so much more. I can’t emphasise the value of these sessions enough. Highly recommend!”

“This is something that needs to be considered mandatory within the organisation to have available for all the staff and staff should be able to participate at least once. The overall benefits of TREAT outweigh other health awareness activities that the organisation run. I would highly recommend TREAT for everyone.”

“In an increasingly pressured workplace where it is easy to feel devalued it is a small reminder that everyone needs a time for self reflection. This program is needed more than ever.”

“It was life changing as a program. The saddest part was ending the course. However, that said, I now have tools to use myself and for my students to calm myself and to help relieve the stress of those around me. There is nothing I have learnt that I feel I will never use in some way, shape or form.”

“The last session made me realise the value and importance of these TREAT sessions and how proud I felt for putting my hand up to be part of this program.”

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for running the program the last few weeks – it’s been really amazing, I’ve got a lot out of it that I will take with me moving forward. It was so nice just to have an hour at the end of the week before work for ‘me time’ – my favourite part of the week! If the program is ever run again for medical registrars I’d definitely put my hand up to do it again!”

“I’m not sure I can express how exceptional Jo has been in these sessions.  Even on really bad days I look forward to tuning in and it has helped so much.”

“I arrived often feeling depleted, overwhelmed with a long job list but would leave each session feeling energised and rested as if I’d just woken up from rest. I also left feeling hopeful.”

“I’m very much a beginner to yoga and mindfulness but I’m so truly grateful for your practices and believe Treat is one of the most vital tools to maintain our wellbeing as healthcare workers.”

“All staff should try this at least once. The Treat sessions were a fabulous break and a way to acknowledge the stressors we are faced with. Taking time to do a mental reset meant I was energised for the rest of the day! Offering the Treat program feels like my hospital values us as employees and as people.”
