Mindfulness is defined by 'being in the present moment', by practicing mindfulness one is able to become calm, become more able to gain awareness and acceptance of one's feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations, and let go of unhealthy patterns of stress. By practicing mindfulness one can improve one's mental health, worries are decreased and happiness is more readily accessible.

I have been running mindfulness workshops within schools and workshops for teenagers and adults for over 9 years, plus working 121 with clients. In the workshops we look at the habits of the mind, the persistant thoughts of the past or future which can bring a feeling of anxiety, low mood or agitation to the mind. Techniques are taught to help bring the mind to the present, away from the distractions and worries that can hound our daily lives. Various techniques are taught and ways that they can be incorporated into daily living.

Working 1-2-1 with a client I use different techniques and practices to help each individual, helping them to recognise their own habits and to gain acceptance and compassion for themselves. In a short time many benefits are noticed, making the practice more easy to stick to.

I am able to offer workshops to schools, groups and 1-2-1 sessions in the High Peak area. Please contact me for more information.
