What People Have Said
I have known Jai Cheswick for 7.5 years.
I first met Jai in 1993. His willingness to confront and face his own personal issues was exemplary. He became a quick study of skills and techniques to enhance his own change and began to successfully facilitate change with others.
By 1995 he had completed a Communications Programme, Compulsive Games and Goals Programme, and 30 hours of intensive coaching.
In 1998 – 1999 he co-coached the Communications Programme with me.
Since 1996 I have used Jai's services for my own clarity and purposes and he participated with me through until 1999 in a research programme identifying and resolving compulsive goals. He brought many valuable insights and realisations to the handling of thought forms and monadic field phenomena.
I have utilised his services with my clients and their friends and have received excellent feedback and expressions of success and gratitude.
I will continue to use and recommend Jai's services and have the deepest respect for his abilities and compassion for others issues.
IT Project Manager
I joined online meditation classes some months ago. Here we focus on different types of breathing practice. After 30 years of practicing Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation I have noticed something has recently changed within myself.
Jai is very knowledgeable and capable in sharing meditation yoga practices and brings a calming, intuitive presence to each class.I highly recommend his classes for anyone wishing to further develop / or deepen their personal journey.
IT Sales Executive
I have been a Sales Executive for over 18 years. A sales career at the top is certainly rewarding however there is also a lot of pressure associated with this, which can negatively impact other areas of your life. To balance this constant pressure, over this time I have attended various personal development and counselling sessions.
I am happy to report Jai Cheswick is equally impressive in a personal or a professional situation.
My sessions with Jai Cheswick not only met my requirements but substantially exceeded all my expectations and has considerably improved both my personal life and career situation.
I have been practising yoga for many years now and have found it highly beneficial.
I have known Jai for some time and have found him to be a passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable teacher who makes you feel at ease from the moment you enter the room.
The atmosphere in class is warm, friendly and non-judgemental and I always leave feeling I have accomplished something new. Make the time, join in and see for yourself !
Jai Cheswick has been instrumental in assisting me improve my communication on many different levels. This was vital to my work and personal life.
He has helped me develop new approaches when working through conflict situations to manage everyday stress. He encourages ways to remain calm, articulate and manage my emotions and to recognise the various tools available in different situations no matter how chaotic, challenging or stressful.
Jai works "with" not "on" you, and empowers you to see your patterns of behaviour and recognise for yourself when they are not working for you.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jai as a skilled and compassionate counsellor for anyone who wants to enhance their working lives and be rewarded with greater personal fulfilment.
His keen perception, creative thinking and understanding of the essence of clear communication, provides practical guidance for anyone desiring to reach their full potential.
Secondary School Teacher
Over the past 8 weeks, Jai has been guiding our group along a journey of MeditationYoga practice.
I have particularly enjoyed the breathing techniques and developing a wholistic understanding through his thoughtful readings.
We will sometimes chant as well. I have enjoyed exploring a deeper connection to my own body as we bring intention and self respect to each practice.
I have known Jai Cheswick for three years.
During this time Jai has counselled me on numerous occasions regarding both my professional and private lives. We met while participating in a Men's Group that lasted a little over a year. During this time I was impressed with Jai's compassionate ability to get to the core of the issues at hand.
I do not hesitate in recommending him.
The terms “healing” and “holistic” are so horribly overused in Australian society that I shy away from their use most of the time.
And yet, we will need to keep these as a guide on the horizon when we look at what Jai Cheswick is trying to achieve.
I was involved in a garden Jai designed for a medical clinic. The clinic is located in a building like so many others. Not particularly grand, not overly run down.
However, the yard of the clinic was in complete disarray. Jai was among the applicants for the job of design and he convinced the team very quickly with his clear vision for a ‘green healing space’ completely contained within the Australian landscape.
Jai had a deep understanding that the garden would serve a multitude of purposes. While it certainly was aimed to appeal visually to new and exisiting patients of the practice, there was also a deeper aim. The garden had to provide those with existential worries a space where they felt safe and cared for. Jai designed a quiet space within this area that is now often used for doctor-patient discussions, despite the fact that it is outdoors.
Many patients have since commented on the serenity of this little space in the middle of a busy suburb. Like so many things in life, it might not seem like much. Yet it affects many people in difficult times of their life on a level that words often cannot reach.
Learning that Jai is committing himself to further delve into areas of Indian and Asian philosophies as applied to gardens strikes me as a fabulous match. Because no team of humans can ever be ‘holistic’ and no one is really a healer. But creating an environment that fosters serenity and thoughtfulness in those that trust themselves into it might just achieve parts of this very noble goal. I can not think of anyone more motivated and dedicated to pursue this vision than Jai Cheswick.

Senior Business Manager
I have no hesitation in writing this letter of recommendation for Jai Cheswick
I have been taking sessions with Jai now over a period of 12 months.
My initial meetings with Jai were to address issues relevant to my employment in the field of Sales as a Business Manager in the private sector.
Through counselling sessions I have become successful in:
~ Managing Stress
~ Enjoying my work
~ Reducing the frequency of migraine significantly
Due to my success in the above and the positive impact on my level of enjoyment at work, I continued with Jai on personal issues.
The skills I learned in counselling sessions not only assist at the time of counselling, giving a clarity of thought, but if implemented on a day to day basis, continues to improve my quality of life.
