Mindfulness for Wellbeing
The practice of Mindfulness is a powerful way of coping with the stresses and challenges of our busy lives. It enables us to live fully in the present moment rather than worrying constantly about the past or future. We learn to take our minds off 'automatic pilot' and develop a way of mindful 'being' rather than a driven 'doing' mode; more able to accept life with all its ups and downs rather than constantly wanting it to be different.
I teach Mindfulness skills as part of individual therapy or you can join a group to learn the practice of Mindfulness within a structured 8 week programme.
I trained to teach Mindfulness programmes with Enter Mindfulness & the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

The 8-Week Programme
I teach the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Course & also the Finding Peace in a Frantic World Programme which is based on Professor Mark Williams' and Danny Penman's best selling book. Both are taught in a supportive small group setting over 8 x weekly 90 minute/2 hour sessions.
Each session is a mixture of teaching, discussion and Mindful Meditation practices.
The Finding Peace in a Frantic World Programme is based on the well established Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Programme, but requires less time commitment, so is particularly suitable for busy people who are aware of the 'frantic world' around them & are interested in developing the practice of Mindfulness to help them find a different and better way of responding to the challenges of life.
NEXT COURSE I am now teaching these courses on a one-to-one basis or to small groups of friends, family members or colleagues who would like to learn together. Taster sessions can be arranged. Contact me to discuss how this might work for you.
