Full Description:

This is a mindfulness for anyone who’s ever struggled with mindfulness, who has tried but felt like they ‘just can’t do it!’ or for those who just want something a bit new.
The workshops are also mental and emotional health sensitive and for those who identify as neurodivergent.

I don’t believe mindfulness needs to be practiced in just one way.
We are all different, and in my experience teaching I have seen how many people don’t respond to traditionally taught methods. These methods are wonderful and work for many people a great deal of the time; but these workshops are for people for whom those methods never work, for those who have never tried mindfulness or for those who would just like to learn some new techniques and ideas for your current practice tool box.

My back-ground working as a therapist in mental health and trauma settings informs my teaching a great deal. I am keen to make mindfulness more accessible to those who may find mindfulness tricky, overwhelming or unhelpful rather that a useful tool for well-being.

In the workshops, you will experience:
- Breathwork
- Eye movement
- Hand and other small gentle body movements
- Regular opportunities to take breaks and check in with yourself
- Other neuroscience informed hacks to aid people in developing mindful practices that work for them
- Information sharing so you know what might work and why

In sharing some of the theories that inform my work, I offer an opportunity to learn a little bit about:
- Ideas like polyvagal theory – this is the theory of how your nervous system and mood interact
- Other ideas and knowledge that can aid you in developing mindful practices that work for you, your brain and meet your needs. This is not a one size fits all workshop!

I always try to share information in bite size and hopefully really easy to understand ways.

Out of my work and training as a therapist and my on-going studies in areas such as the neurobiology of stress and anxiety and their counterparts - calm and present, I have informed my own mindfulness practice and my teaching methods with lots of new ideas and tools. I’d love to share these with you.

Please be aware that in these workshops I will be unable to attend to individual needs. I ask that all who attend only do what feels safe and right for them, if you’re concerned please do speak to a medical or mental health professional.
I will always remind everyone regularly of options and accommodations available and to keep taking care of themselves. I will also endeavour to offer as many different ideas and tools as possible in the hope that you will find the techniques that work for you, and aid you in developing your own personalised and mood responsive mindful practices.

The Four Workshops will all include mixed elements, however each one will have some stronger focus on one element:

Takeaway Benefits:
