I’m passionate about using my experience to bring together the people and opportunities that can help make mindfulness practice an everyday thing for anyone who wants or needs it.
I have been practising mindfulness meditation since 2010 and became a fully certified mindfulness practitioner in 2018. I teach mindfulness as a practice, specialising in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), stress management and the daily use of relaxation techniques including meditation. I have worked with children and adults in class-based mindfulness meditations. I design one-off introduction courses and eight-week mindfulness practices to share with others the tools that I use to make mindfulness practice part of everyday life.
What is mindfulness meditation?
Mindfulness is being more aware of the present moment in which you live. It’s about living your life, calming the mind, and improving well-being. Meditations are the spaces you create for gentle movements and stillness on your busy day. The more time you spend in practice, the more you begin to live in the present moment, non-judgmentally, without worrying about what comes next or what happened in the past.
Can mindfulness meditation help improve mental health?
We think it can. I suffer from depression and anxiety. While recovering from a prolonged period of depression in 2010, I discovered mindfulness meditation and began using it, along with many other forms of support, to aid my recovery. Mindfulness meditation continues to be a daily source of happiness and mental strength for me, during good and bad days, and I’ve gone on to train and reach accreditation status so that I can teach others.
In my blog, I share stories from my personal experience of recovery alongside simple meditations for you to try. I want to share with you everything I’ve learned in the last eight years as a mindfulness practitioner and coach, and I would love to hear your stories and answer any questions you have.
