What is

MINDFULNESS AND MINDFUL LIVING?

The best place to start is by addressing what mindfulness, meditation and mindful living are not. There are several misconceptions around the practices; with perhaps the most common, being that meditation involves making the mind go blank, switching off and getting rid of our thoughts. This is a misconception, as in practice, the opposite is actually happening!

We are not seeking to get rid of thoughts, but become more aware and accepting of them. In mindfulness, we learn to become the observer of our minds and gain insights into our emotions, thoughts and feelings. This is important as when we have insight we have choice and from choice, there can be positive change.

You must consider that whilst we live in a world where we have many freedoms, are you really free? Are you really free when the over thinking mind is running the show, when it holds you back due to worries about the future, or is lost in painful memories? Is there true freedom in that? “Mindfulness can offer you a way to re-wire your brain for real freedom.”

In essence, “Mindfulness is witnessing what is happening, whilst it is happening, without preference”. We seek to give ourselves more mental space and no longer let our thoughts bother or entrap us. This involves being more present and connected to ourselves, in the here and now. We learn how to access this ‘present moment’, through our meditation and guided sits; which, although central to the mindfulness journey, are not the only experience that you will have. I say this because the practice of mindfulness does not just happen when we are sat on a cushion, we learn to take our practices, into our everyday lives and routines.

The courses and sessions I run are for everyone, they are not just targeted at one specific problem or level of experience. Please get in touch, to discuss how we can begin, or further, your mindfulness development.

What are the benefits of using mindfulness?

Regular mindfulness practice can bring about long-term changes in mood, levels of happiness, peace, joy and wellbeing. Studies show that mindfulness not only prevents depression, but also positively affects the brain patterns associated with daily anxiety, stress, irritability and chronic pain. Introducing compassion practices significantly reduce self-criticism, self-doubt, emotional suppression and helps building personal resilience. There is a noted increase in improved memory, creativity and reaction times.

How Can I Help

How can I help?

How would it feel to make friends with your mind? I will help you work more skilfully with your mind. By using mindfulness and compassion based practices alongside self-reflection exercises you will start to recognise how your mind jumps from dwelling in the past, worrying about the future and lost in daydreaming and fantasy in the present. You will learn how to recognise what triggers the mind and mind habits that affect your mood-states offering an alternative perspective on situations. You will start feeling more confident in your ability to not let the mind take over, to skilfully work with the bodies wisdom enabling you to stay more grounded less reactive and more balanced in life. These new skills can help you break negative cycles of anxiety, stress and depression, and brings a space within for more peace calm and clarity.

I offer a range of different mindfulness based sessions and courses which can be personalised, to suit your individual needs. Please browse through the sessions and courses offered to find out more. Please do not hesitate to contact me, for further information.

"I have been attending mindfulness meditation sessions with Paula now for a couple of years. I have also attended 1-2-1 sessions and completed the 8 week mindfulness based living course which was awesome. Paula is amazing in so many ways but mainly she will make you welcome and safe. Everyone should attend the 8 week course."

"The weekly mindfulness and meditation sessions are just fantastic. They definitely taught me to be open minded to new ways of dealing with difficulties and daily stress. Since joining, I do recommend mindfulness to everyone I know. You are guided by a great teacher and surrounded by fun group of people. It’s a great, safe space to try mindfulness and learn a thing or two about yourself."

"I’ve been having one to one mindfulness sessions with Paula over the past two months & I can honestly say they’ve been hugely helpful. Paula is a lovely, kind person that puts you at ease when you’re not always in a good place in your mind. She’s extremely knowledgeable on the subject, totally professional but in such a relaxed manner you don’t want to leave. The setting is just beautiful & can’t help to feel relaxed & comfortable. I’ve been practicing daily at home & am feeling the benefits most definitely. I’ve joined the group in the teepee a few times & this is truly amazing. I’ve passed Paula’s number on to so many friends now that have different issues I feel Paula could help them or their children with. I’m glad I’ve met her & mindfulness is now part of my life."

"Just finished the 8 week Mindfulness course that Paula runs - truly inspiring and such a lovely group of people! Learned that there is a way to deal with/recognise a constantly ‘busy mind’ and that ‘thoughts’ are just ‘visitors’ We were given the ‘tools’ to develop ‘mindful’ attitudes to everyday behaviours, eating, walking, breathing! Paula emailed us copies of what we studied every week, so helpful to refer back to - thanks so much for such an inciteful and worthwhile course."

*It is really important that you choose a qualified teacher as it is vital that they have a very strong personal practice; you couldn’t teach someone to dance if you couldn’t dance yourself! I have trained through the mindfulness association and hold certificates in, Teaching Mindfulness Meditation, Readiness to teach Mindfulness-Based Living Course (MBLC), Mindfulness and Behavioural Therapy, Responding with Compassion, and Compassion based teaching skills. I follow the UK Good Practice Guidelines and am on the UK list of mindfulness teachers. I also hold qualifications in EFT: emotional freedom technique.
