“This morning I have woken up feeling physically and mentally strong. Inside I feel calm and a warmth. I like this feeling. Something shifted yesterday both physically and emotionally it feels like the weight I was holding released into the water on the riverbank. I have been conditioned by life to look for permission to release my emotions and (thought) I was OK with this. Yesterday you showed me a way to release this. The power of the drum, the sound of the sea and the wind in my hair. It overwhelmed me and made be tremble but you were there to hold me so I felt safe. You put my feelings into a chant that allowed me to release them. I no longer feel the need to forgive myself - the void this has left I am going to fill with love for myself. I know this will take time to grow. You have helped me to trust myself again and my instinct. We built a relationship first that made me curious and want to learn more. The spirit of nature has always been in my soul but was buried deep through years of survival. It feels like it is blossoming again. When we met I didn't know what I was looking and I was all talked out through talking therapy. I needed to release my magic from within and that is happening.
I have had a life of giving to others and I have thrived from the validation I have received but it has also drained me. Your healing has many depths; I love the fact you understand my work ethic and the corporate background I come from, and how I have transitioned to a compassionate environment in the NHS. You see me as a whole person and can see the many layers that have been hidden over the years. I am ready for the transformation which lies ahead of me. This has come from the heart”
Dawn Nicholls, Strategic Project Manager, Coventry
“Janice is so passionate about what she does and that shows in her work. She is incredibly warm, welcoming and insightful and would highly recommend her! Her oracle card readings are so on point and she is incredibly intuitive. I recently had some distance reiki healing from Janice and all I can say is Wow! Amazing!.”
Verity Brown, Avalan Readings & Reiki
"Janice recently coached me through a wobbly moment when I was tasked with something I felt was beyond my capabilities. She spoke to me over the phone and introduced me to NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) which helped me to transform my thought patterns and unlock the more positive thinking I daren't allow myself - but which proved essential! Not only were her words what I needed, she was a joy to speak to and our conversation really lifted y spirits in a time of need. Thanks so much Janice!"
Catherine Thompson, Leamington Spa
“I discovered Reiki Healing when I was having chemotherapy previously for primary breast cancer. I was really taken with Reiki, and it actually helped me pinpoint my first secondary tumour, and give me the courage to keep pushing for a scan there. When I finished and recovered from my primary treatments, and was looking for a way to manage my new secondary diagnosis, I felt a little lost at sea. It was at this time I found myself being drawn into looking at chakras, body energies and crystals. A friend put me in touch with Janice, which was perfect timing. She has helped me on my path, from finding coping strategies to stressful situations like travelling to and from London for clinical trials. Methods for balancing day to day family life with fatigue, to emotional well being (that last one is a big one). She has helped me understand that I need to allow myself to feel sad sometimes, to acknowledge that, and have faith in myself that I can pull myself out of that sorrow. Janice has given me many more tools for my Wonder Woman belt, which I utilise all the time. One of my favourites is shaking off negativity (a crappy day) by dancing like a loon singing and shaking bells, especially when the boys join in! I highly recommend her.”
“As part of finding my way through a painful life changing year, I am strengthened inspired and guided by my Pathfinder sessions with Janice. The sessions feel skilful and intuitive – it feels like I have as much input as Janice to the direction. She provides the boundaries to hold me and facilitates the realisation of some deep and long held patterns that no longer serve me. Her gentleness, strength and courage to keep me focused means I get maximum benefit from each session. I highly recommend Pu-Tai Wellbeing to anyone wanting to breakthrough to a more fulfilled life.”
“I’ve had three Reiki sessions with Janice ... very relaxing atmosphere and experience.”
Fiona Molloy, Warwick
“Over the last month I’ve had three Reiki sessions with Janice and they have been fabulous. Very restorative, calming and a positive experience. Thank you Janice. I highly recommend Janice to help you restore your balance."
“After years of juggling the demands of running several businesses, and a hectic family life I found myself in a position of feeling ‘lost’ and confused about who I was, what I really should be doing and exhausted from the constant pushing and controlling I’d spent my whole life doing in order to get to where I felt I wanted/needed to be. My connection to joy and happiness had been worn down by my long working hours and I felt overwhelmed making even the smallest of decisions in my life. I felt paralysed to move forward and I started to question everything! From who I was and what I was actually supposed to be doing here with my life!
I met Janice through a chance meeting at a local networking group. I instantly felt I wanted to open up to her and be honest about where I was in my life and how I was feeling and she suggested Reiki and Pathfinder course. We chose the Resilient Me which seemed the most fitting for where I was at that time. After Janice explained the process how it would work and what was involved I only felt a complete sense of relief and excitement to get started. I no longer wanted to feel this way and really needed help to discover what had led me to feel so disconnected from my life. I was 100% committed to this journey and felt ready to start exploring my past present and future beliefs about me and my life that would help me to work through my fears and issues.
For someone who is constantly trying to control every aspect of their life, the free flow nature of the programme felt scary, and I felt out of my depth instantly! But Janice reassured me and through her brilliantly supportive coaching style I was learning from the very outset of starting the course. Just taking myself out of my usual comfort zone of planned, precise, perfection made me realise how tightly wound I was and how I’d come to feel so uptight and anxious about just about everything!
My first session was perhaps the hardest of all the sessions. Just preparing the homework for the session made me feel so emotional thinking of my past and when I met with Janice for that first session I think I cried the whole time we were together. I hadn’t realised just how much emotion, anger, frustration was held within me connected to my childhood, and earlier years of my life.
When I left my first pathfinder session I honestly could not believe how instantly relieved I felt! Although I knew there was still a long journey ahead, just having someone help me to make sense of why I think, feel and act the way I do was so uplifting. And that was the catalyst for me to begin to change and challenge so many of my old ingrained habits for my Thoughts and actions, which have led me to having significantly changed so many aspects of my life and the way I think that have impacted greatly on helping me re-discover the joy of my inner child, find peace on old self doubting beliefs, and discover a feeling of trust that has helped me to start releasing my old controlling ways. Life feels an effortless happier journey and I’m only half way through my pathfinder course!! I’m filled with excitement to see how much more I can discover and grow on this journey...”

“I’m sitting here reflecting on our great session – it was exactly what I needed to focus on right now. The silent creative work was very revealing for me. Also the mind map – I’m going to re-create it for my room.”
“I just wanted to say how much enjoyed today’s session. I left feeling really uplifted and energised. It has come at the perfect time in my well-being journey.”
Laughter Therapy & Laughter Yoga Workshops
I wanted to learn something different and challenge myself. I expected to learn how laughter could be used in a therapeutic setting, and the session met most of what I expected along with pushing me out of my comfort zone. I thought the flow was a good pace and excellent guidance through all the activities. I took away that laughing can be a way of releasing tension and what has stuck with me is the learning about how we’re conditioned - that we (think) we need something to laugh at. I felt more comfortable than I thought I would, although I found it difficult to laugh on demand.
I may use the techniques when I feel stuck with an emotion, and I may use it with clients that are experiencing difficulty releasing tension to help aid with exploring the tension and where the feelings are manifesting physically. I feel very comfortable recommending Pu-Tai Wellbeing to others.

I was interested to learn how you don’t have to feel happy in order to laugh. I like to laugh so I thought it would be appropriate to attend and learn more about the health benefits and what can cause laughter. The session exceeded my expectations. It made a lot of sense but there were some laughing times I felt I was unable to join in, even though it made sense. So, I followed my gut at the time.
My main learning was that brain is very much connected to the actions of the body and not always the other way round. The session revealed to me that as part of my journey, I was able to choose to do what I was asked to do (and not obey every time, in case I got in to trouble). Personally I learned that a smiling expression re wires the brain. It’s something I can share with clients when it is appropriate. I would recommend Pu-Tai Wellbeing to others.

"I love both yoga and laughing, and my expectation was to feel more relaxed and happy afterwards. Yes, the session met my expectation, it was great as always. I like how Janice can “read the room” and adjust the session to how people are feeling. My main takeaway was that even “fake” laughing makes you more relaxed and happier! And how doing something like this for yourself even for a few minutes makes a difference. The session revealed to me that self-massage feels amazing! I especially enjoyed the face and head massage. When I feel tense I will try to pause and massage my face, neck and head for a few minutes. I would love to organise a face yoga session for our carers. I have recommended Pu-Tai Wellbeing to others."
Anna Luczyna, Working Carers Development Officer, Carers Trust Heart of England
"This is simply wonderful! The saying that laughter is the best medicine is so true and so simple. I learned simple things to do each day to raise my spirits and feel great! Fantastic thing to do with friends and family and a lovely way to meet new people. I would recommend this to anyone whether you need your spirits raising or not, more laughter in life can only be a good thing. I will certainly go again. I can see how regular attendance would be life enhancing and beneficial particularly for those struggling with anxiety, depression or low self-esteem. Thank you."
Patricia Howard, Hypnotherapist
"Thanks for last night, tried laughing out loud in the shower this orning and hoped that my walls were think enough in case the neighbours thought there was a mad woman living here!"
"Thank you for the laughter, I will admit that I felt silly to start with, but after a few minutes really got into it, I felt great for the rest of the day and even picked up a few tips to keep me lauging. Great lunchtime laugh that I would really recommend and will be doing again. Thank you Janice."
Selina Jones, Firewalk Instructor
"I've just finished my 1st Tuesday Titter session and I can hoestly say that I feel great. All morning I've been laughing to myself in anticipation of what I'd be doing, so my mood is sky high. Thank you Janice your laugh is contagious, a lovely way to spend 1/2 hour."
“I met Janice yesterday at a festival and I'm so glad I did. It was the fist time I've tried laughter yoga who knew laughing was SO MUCH fun and a workout...my abs are killing (in a good way)! I would definitely recommend, Janice is a joy to be around and her smile and laugh are infectious and my advice is to just embrace it and be a little crazy! Thank you Janice”
“Simple but effective! Certainly brings a new meaning to mindfulness! So infectious too. I was sceptical at first but what a great way to let go!”
“Thank you Pu-Tai Wellbeing and Jan for the most incredible and amazingly joyous evening at our 2Share group in Kenilworth. You are so friendly, kind and a breath of fresh air. What a wonderful spirit you are. We are looking forward to seeing you again.”
"I went to my first Laughter Yoga session very open-minded and ready to throw myself into activities. Was surprised by what I was confident and not so confident about - not what I would have predicted if I'd known what to expect. Janice and the humour (and bellies) of others really made the session. Was a great laugh and an opportunity to really let go without being judged (by myself as much as anyone else). Am looking forward to the next session and laughing along with Janice."
“What a great fun night Fillongley Lite WI has last night! Our ladies comments were all positive, your session lifted the mood of the group, I wonder how any have laughed in the mirror this morning?! Thanks.”
“Never laughed so much in all my life! Janice kindly offered her services to Coventry and Warwickshire Mind Family Fun Day for free. She brought such a fun vibe to the day and her laughter was contagious! Thank you Janice.
Kelly-Anne, Mums in Mind
Amazing! Really helps to lose yourself and not take things too seriously! You must give it a try!
“Really enjoyed the Laughter Yoga and the Happy Cafe in Warwick! Janice is so welcoming and HAPPY!”
“Our speaker this month was Janice, telling us all about ‘The Power of Laughter’. She explained to us how to feel good about yourself using laughter as a tool to relieve anxiety, lower blood pressure, cope with stressful situations and just to relax with it. We all took some controlled deep breaths, relaxed our shoulders and the fun began! With a Ha Ha Ha, He He He and a Ho Ho Ho’, we were clapping, smiling and laughing so loudly in that room I imagine anyone walking by would wonder what was going on in there. Janice really got us feeling good about ourselves which is the idea of laughing yoga. She explained that doing this in front of a mirror on a daily basis, when you are cleaning your teeth, putting your face cream on, not only will you look beautiful but you will feel beautiful inside. After all, they say laughter is the best medicine don’t they?! Try it and see!”
“What an absolute hoot!! Tonight’s laughter yoga was absolutely top notch! Jan from Pu-Tai Wellbeing even managed to get us all on the blanket for a mass belly laugh!!! We weren’t sure at first but you certainly got us chuckling, sniggering, chortling, clucking and belly laughing too! A great night.”
Newbold Pacey & Ashorne W.I.
“Really good fun class. A bit awkward at the beginning but Janice’s laughter is contagious and helped to let go of any embarrassment. I felt re-energized at the end of the class.”
