"I’m really glad I signed up for the Action for Happiness workshop, Catia was engaging and fun and is knowledgeable on so many levels. It was a lovely bit of connection in a safe space with honest and kind participants which made it a really special thing to be involved in. I learnt a lot from Catia and had the opportunity to share and talk with others and learn from them as well , I hope there is another and I will look forward to it."

Meena M.

"The happiness workshop that I attended with you was an excellent way to begin the year. The workshop was engaging and I loved the way you involved all of the participants. The techniques you used, had us think both critically and intuitively. I also loved the exercises, how you encouraged us to give compliments to one another, and to learn to embrace and accept such compliments with much joy! The knowledge you have about our mind (neurology), body, nutrition and health is impeccable! Your presentation style and delivery was easy to understand and the content was engaging and fulfilling, thank you!."

Ren L.

"Wow what a fantastic and well-rounded workshop experience. It really was about 'taking action' even within the workshop itself. I felt so warmly welcomed by Catia who seems full of empathy and compassion. I felt we were each in safe hands as each participants' contribution was so incredibly valued. She held the space really well for each of us. Because of this I was made to feel at ease with strangers and learned so much from the presentation and the discussion Catia facilitated. I especially appreciated the visceral nature of some of the exercises, giving credence to the fact that we all learn in different ways. Hugely empowering workshop not be be missed."

"I attended the Action for happiness workshop with Catia Soares and I certainly recommend it to everyone looking to improve self care and wellbeing. More than the useful information I took away, this was a space to reflect on my own journey, actions and further steps I can take to live a happier life. For me this was much more than a workshop. Thank you Catia. I'm looking forward to the next one. "
