Opening to Mindfulness SessionsImmersing yourself in mindful living affirms who you are as a person and the desires you have.
Have you heard all of the hype about mindfulness or had it recommended as something you should try yet haven’t known where to start or found it made you even more anxious? Then the Opening to Mindfulness sessions that I offer may help.
These sessions are about nurturing a way for living that is intentional and chosen by you
It is important to know that people who have experienced trauma and live, or have lived, with mental health issues do benefit from mindfulness. This is why the start of these sessions cover an introduction to the body and mind impacts of such things – which is about our physiology and how connected to our body we are. When we know this we are more able to recognise and work with all that are bodies. minds and souls give us.
Practices and reflections are tailored to your knowledge and experience, sensory preferences, circumstances and what you want to take from the session. I walk this path myself and share my knowledge from my learning and living of it.
small pre-session questionnaire, workbook with delving deeper questions to reflect on during and after the session and two weeks of email support after the session.
+ option of follow-up sessions to unpack your experience more, iron out concerns or confusions, create accountability or take your practice to the next level.
$200 for a two-hour session, workbook and email support
Group sessions are coming soon. Once a year I offer a FREE A-Z of Mindful Living email series that you may be interested in.
These sessions are great if:
-> you are curious about mindfulness, have a little bit of experience with it or you have tried mindfulness but are still unsure about how to practice or benefit most from it
-> you want to embrace mindfulness as a way to live rather than a technique to use sometimes
-> anxiety, trauma or illness are a part of your life and you are seeking real world strategies that do help
-> you are seeing another mental or allied-health practitioner and want focused support on mindfulness to add to your toolbox
I believe mindfulness is about how we live our moments rather than ‘zenning’ out and meditating for 20-60 minutes at a time. I love Jon Kabat-Zinn’s book Wherever You Go, There You Are.
My approach is grounded broadly in evidence and psychological theory related to: Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT); Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT); Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT); Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR); and trauma informed practice.
