Mindfulness for Healthy Living
There is considerable research data to show that ongoing mindfulness practice can reduce stress, improve sleep patterns, enhance health and wellbeing and restore a sense of calm, balance and ease. We are currently offering Zoom sessions for groups and individuals. Please get in touch if you’d like more information or to book a session.

What happens in a one-to-one session?
Sessions are tailored to your individual needs and start with a personal health consultation. We can discuss your hopes and expectations for the session. Then we can simply practice meditation together or you can follow one of the 8-week secular mindfulness programmes such as the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme or the Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress or Health course or Mark Williams and Danny Penman’s ‘Finding Peace in a Frantic World’. All sessions are confidential and any records will be kept according to data protection legislation.
Mindfulness practices include mindfulness of the breath, the body scan practice and gentle, easy mindful movement as well as some mindfulness-based activities which are relevant to daily life such as mindful eating, mindful walking and mindful listening. You can choose the practices you prefer, if you select a personalised programme. Mindfulness also includes self-reflection to help us to start to notice our habits and patterns so that we can begin to take a new perspective on life’s ups and downs.
Who is the session for?
All are welcome. We will be noticing our thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, so you may prefer to wait if you are currently/ have recently experienced extremely stressful life events. Under 18s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
