Mindfulness for Business

I offer mindfulness 1-1s, talks, in-house training or retreats in Wicklow, Ireland and Alicante, Spain.

This service is for companies who are looking to offer this service to their staff. Mindfulness is a simple and great set of tools to de-stress employees.

Studies ahow it leads to better concentration, interpersonal and intra-personal awareness, positive attitudes and overall increases in well-being.

Here’s some feedback from companies that have availed of John’s work:


Mounira Latrache – Manager, YouTube Space Berlin

John Doherty facilitated the Google Detachment Day in Dublin, September 2014. His calm and very friendly nature made it easy for everyone to adapt and follow his guidance. John has a great way of visualizing complex things so we all could learn a lot by experience which is much more powerful than listening to words. I also really enjoyed his presence and energy that even convinced people who have never meditated before. The whole day with John was absolutely valuable, relaxing and made it easy to detach from daily business or thoughts. Would definitely recommend everyone to join his course and if I would not live in Germany I would attend every week.

Ben Smith -Strategic Account Manager at Google

I attended a day long detachment day retreat delivered by John. It was a truly wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone. It is clear that John is truly happy and practices what he preaches. This gives him great credibility when he delivers the content. The content itself has taught me a great deal about mindfulness, compassion, love, kindness and meditation practices. Even though I only attended the course over a month ago I can still hear John’s voice sharing those key messages. Thanks John! Keep up the good work and spread your insight far and wide.

Helen O’FlynnHead of HR @ Gorta Self-Help Africa

John provided a thorough, professional and tailored mindfulness programme for the organisation. He put time and attention into assessing our needs and continually checked in to see if adaptations were needed to ensure the audience received the most beneficial programme. The breadth and depth of experience that John brings to mindfulness theory and practice was very evident. It was a pleasure to work with John and to benefit from his programme.

Patricia Hallahan – Director of Education Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services

John Doherty has been providing lunchtime mindfulness and meditation lunchtime sessions for the staff of Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross for many years now. His sessions are always well attended and have had a positive effect on our staff, increasing capacity and impact of the important work that they do. He has also provided one day sessions in the Education and Research Centre which have been positively evaluated by participants. A wonderful man, an encouraging mentor and someone who can make a real difference to individual and organisational practice and performance. Highly recommended.

Terry McCabe – CEO Blanchardstown Area Partnership

John has facilitated a number of team-building days for our LCDP team at Blanchardstown Area Partnership. The latest of these days took place three weeks ago and was a great success. John is a pleasure to work with – professional, flexible and will build the experience according to the needs of his clients. I look forward to working with John again soon.

Dr. Elaine Madden – Head of Midwifery & Gynaecology,  South Eastern Trust, NI

25 members of the SET maternity team participated in a 3 hour workshop with John, as our activity levels have increased over the past 4 years  the potential for burn up amongst staff has been highlighted as an issue. The workshop received very positive comments and this proactive approach to mental health and well being meant all staff  attending felt empowered to take control and develop the role of their observer we look forward to moving to the next stage of self awareness to our inner health.

Irish Midwives and Nurses Association Conference – Rotunda Hospital

Many thanks John for giving such a tremendous presentation yesterday. Staff very much appreciated the Self Care programme and today the difference was visible as I went around the clinical areas. Staff came to me saying how they could recognise themselves ‘in and out of the chair ‘and how they could now look and see where they are. It is surprising how in such a short session a difference can be made for the better . We certainly appreciate your help and contribution in making the conference a success.
