WHAT IS MINDFULNESS AND WHY SHOULD YOU USE IT?
What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is essentially a holistic (as in whole mind and body) form of therapy in which a number of methods such as meditation, movement, counselling skills and lifestyle training all apply.
With mindfulness therapy, limiting beliefs which have led you to harsh and painful situations can be transformed into creative and productive dialogue. Mindfulness is a holistic alternative to counselling and can provide a more grounded and balanced approach than coaching alone.
I use National Occupations Standards for Health Framework and the ethical guidelines of the professional bodies of which I am a member: International Alliance of Holistic Therapists and The Society of Holistic Therapists and Coaches. I am also on the Register of Independent General & Holistic Therapists as well as a approved training centre with The Complementary Medical Association.

Here’s a big one for you this week. Trust. It’s one of the 7 attitudinal foundations of mindfulness and something I believe should be cultivated whether you practice mindfulness or not. The big question here or the big misunderstanding here is do we need to cultivate trust in other people or trust in ourselves. Well […]
I’m not going to lie. Sometimes it’s a bitch. It sneaks up on you and you don’t, you can’t see it coming. It changes tact and gets you in ways you don’t expect. That’s how it’s got me this time. I thought I was free. After almost 4 years medication free, it snuck up on […]
It’s never nice to be criticised. However, sometimes it’s a necessary part of our growth and development. As you become an adult you learn to deal with a certain amount of criticism but this tends to be only accepted from people who can give this in a certain way. Even as adults, it’s easy to take offence […]
We all do it. Some more than others. But no one is innocent of being judgemental. It’s an unhealthy emotional practice to judge. It’s funny though, we all think we don’t judge but more often than not, the moment we begin the non-judging practice we have this realisation that we live in constant judgement. Literally […]
Ok, so I’ve been completely inspired today after watching an amazing Ted Talk. First of all, in my meditation sessions, I often talk about how meditation is used for pain management but not to get rid of the pain. So we change our perception of pain and our relationship with it. There’s an awesome BBC […]
Positive thinking is an excellent practice, it's vitally important within self-growth, but it does have its limits. Positive thinking helps you move away from hindering negative thinking models and helps you to move forward when you are at an impasse in life.
We need to change the way we view conflict. Most people see it as a bad thing, as often a terrible source of stress. However, conflict simply means two different opinions or different behaviours. These differences come from a person’s varying backgrounds and upbringing. Variety is the spice of life, right? Conflict can be used […]
I recently completed an NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems, and I did the course as a practice for doing my Level 3 Counselling course. Honestly though, most of the course was easy. I already knew most of it from personal experience of my own mental health issues or of those […]
It’s all too easy, especially when you are a working mum to put yourself last. Instead of spending some time relaxing, you catch up on ironing or quickly wash up. We take a day off work to clean the house, then feel guilty when we spend half of it binge-watching shows on Netflix (why feel […]
If there is one thing that I often feel I have to defend its boundaries. Not just my boundaries but the concept of them also. Being a Mindfulness practitioner, people look at me and think it’s not ‘mindful’ to have opinions or that I should be so kind always that perhaps I am a doormat. […]
Mindfulness has become a hot topic in the business world lately. Hitting the USA first as a tool to increase productivity and focus, help the workforce interact better with each other and reduce stress-related absences. Coming to the UK It is now hitting UK branches of businesses like L’Oreal and Hobbs as well as government […]
The benefits of meditation pile up, some can’t be explained through scientific research but trust me that is ongoing! However, I do like to read the scientific publications on meditation and mindfulness because of how much success I’ve personally had with it and the success of my clients. One article I came […]
