About this event

"By using Mindfulness techniques we learn to focus on our direct experience of pain and improve our emotional well-being"

"I am a Mindfulness and Psychotherapy professional with over 30 years’ experience. The learning, practice, and application of Mindfulness over this time has been hugely beneficial not only to me personally, but also to my broader family and community life. I also teach Mindfulness skills to children and have worked with schools over many years, something I have very much enjoyed doing.

My personal journey started over 30 years ago when personal events and circumstances brought on a period of depression and anxiety. Having found that the practice of meditation improved matters significantly, I decided to pursue training as a professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist followed by a Masters in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. I have continued my ongoing training and practice through regular retreats at Buddhist temples and centres. I have a daily practice which I feel is very important when teaching the skill of Mindfulness to others.

I firmly believe in the power of Mindfulness to transform one's life. The positive effect of daily practice of Mindfulness has been evident in my ability to manage not just my chronic illness but also my positive interaction with the world at large. Life is indeed hard sometimes and we all need the right tools and techniques to survive and thrive in it.

What mindfulness does is bring us right into our experiences, moment by moment, in a way that is realistic and meaningful to whatever is going on in our lives."
