Mindfulness Practice is the switching from autopilot, the stepping back in our minds from thoughts on the past or future to concentrate entirely in the present. Simply put, once we become aware of how our thoughts are guiding us, we are better able to make more considered decisions about how to act. Through the guided breathing exercises of meditation and the movements of yoga, the mind is eased into a calmer, more reflective, state that brings proven relief from stress, depression and anxiety.
My Mindfulness Teacher Journey
For me, Mindfulness effortlessly combined all my passions in one. I was further astounded to discover that the co-founder of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Dr Zindel Segal, was working in the same hospital as me in Toronto. I eagerly took the chance to study MBCT from its founder and went on to train in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in San Diego, again learning the practice from leading experts in the field.
Mindfulness Teacher London
Having relocated back to London I offer Mindfulness courses both individually or in groups at various locations around London, or as private Mindfulness courses in your own home. I hold monthly classes in Mill Hill, London and one-day Mindfulness Retreats. It has been a privilege to see the transformation in people completing the eight week MBCT course. I have seen individuals find real relief, whether using Mindfulness to ease stress, fend off depressive thoughts or cope with anxiety. I am listed as a Mindfulness teacher on bemindful.co.uk and recognised by the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training. I am also a certified Radical Forgiveness Coach.
