Why Mindfulness?

Originally a Buddhist practice - dating back 2600 years - secular mindfulness has become widely practiced in the West due to the extensive scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness in helping relieve many stress-related difficulties (see benefits below).


Mindfulness can be described as "Paying attention to present moment experiences, with openness, curiosity and a willingness to ‘be with’ what is.”

  It is a highly beneficial quality of mind (and approach to life) that anyone can develop through practice and with expert guidance. It involves combining formal meditation with daily ‘on the go’ exercises. 

Mindfulness is taught over a number of weeks (typically 8). This allows time for both the skill / habit of mindfulness to be formed, and for its benefits to take root. 

Once learned, you'll be equipped with a life-enhancing practice that can serve you for the rest of your life. 

Benefits and Reasons To Learn Mindfulness


Over the last few decades, mindfulness has been studied extensively by prominent neuroscientists and psychologists. The evidence clearly shows that having a consistent mindfulness meditation practice provides many significant health and wellbeing benefits.


Mindfulness can be very effective for:

  • Reducing Stress
  • Calming Anxiety
  • Preventing Depression Relapse
  • Managing Chronic Pain
  • Taming Worry & Overthinking
  • Promoting Better Sleep
  • Lowering Blood Pressure
  • Bolstering Immune System
  • Increasing Focus & Attention
  • Improving Working Memory
  • Better Cognitive Function
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Being Calmer Under Pressure
  • Developing Patience
  • Enhancing Self-Awareness
  • Compassion For Self & Others
  • Nurturing Stronger Relationships

You don’t have to be experiencing a problem with any of the above to benefit from learning mindfulness.

Many people simply find the practice to be a wonderful way to feel more present and connected to themselves and the world around them - a reliable way to maintain their mental health and resilience.

Learning mindfulness could be perfect for you if any of these apply...

 How I Teach Mindfulness

Mindfulness is not a quick fix or ‘sticking plaster’ to cover up our stresses and struggles. It’s a way for us to train our minds to have a wiser, more easeful and responsive relationship with the inevitable ups and downs of life.

While mindfulness and meditation is relatively simple to learn, it takes guidance, time and regular practice for the benefits to strengthen.

Therefore, I teach mindfulness over a number of weekly sessions. Extensive scientific research has found that it takes 8 weeks of consistent practice to realise deep and lasting benefits, and this is what I recommend.

Each week I will teach you various kinds of meditation techniques, as well as ‘on-the-go’ exercises you can easily incorporate into your daily routines.

Typical sessions include:

  •  Learning a quick ‘grounding’ practice for feeling present and settled
  •  A formal meditation (this is recorded and given to you to practice with between sessions)
  •  An ‘inquiry’ process to help you gain personal insights from your practice
  •  Deepening your knowledge and understanding of the nuances of mindfulness
  •  Learning informal ways to be mindful throughout the day
  •  Discussing how to make the practice relevant to your life circumstances
  •  Setting out your ‘home practice’ for the week ahead

My goal is to always teach in a down-to-earth, friendly and compassionate way. There is no one size fits all approach to practicing mindfulness, and my promise is to help you find the way that works best for you and your unique circumstances.
