Young Peoples Sessions

Young Peoples Sessions

In our current society, there are many challenges place on the young. Through my online workshops and personal sessions, I aim to provide the chance for individuals to discover and investigate mindfulness techniques which are specifically aimed at supporting them with stresses that often arise at this age. This includes difficulties surrounding self-worth, school transitions, exam nerves, and much more.
The techniques learned within these sessions will continue to support young adults through the many changes ahead.

The world is changing quickly and so is the way we connect, teach and learn. During the pandemic many mindfulness facilitators/teachers choose to teach online and still do today. Working in this way offers you the chance to work with a facilitator/teacher that may be out of your area, also online classes, workshops, or 1-1 sessions  maybe well-suited for those wishing to access teachings from their home environment. Hybrid sessions are also an option for corporate and school environments.

Research has shown mindfulness is effective when delivered online and the quality of teaching you receive is the same as an in-person session.

8-Week Mindfulness Based Living Course

8-Week Mindfulness Based Living Course

Are you looking for change? Have you had enough of your mind running the show? Can you see how your mind sabotages you but you don’t know how to be any other way? Are you looking to feel happier, calmer, less stressed and generally more balanced emotionally and mentally? If that’s a HELL YES  then I cant wait to introduce you to this course. Mindfulness has a proven track record in re-wiring the mind for change; and this Mindfulness Based Living course content has been expertly put together by the Mindfulness Association and is based on the University of Aberdeen’s MSc Studies in Mindfulness Curriculum. 

I see and hear the life-changing results that this course has had for the  Participants, from being less reactive in home/work/life situations, to taking control back in their lives.

I have trained with the Mindfulness Association to teach the 8-week MBLC so you can rest in the knowledge that you are supported by a fully trained teacher who is aware of trauma sensitivity within the practice and fully embodies mindfulness. If you are struggling with your overthinking mind, maybe feelings of anxiety, fear, depressive episodes, or ruminating over past events, worrying about the future, or you feel a sense of dissatisfaction in your life, or maybe you have practiced mindfulness on your own via an app but want to dive a little deeper, then this course is a must for you.

Below, are just some of the benefits that participants have reported, as a result of completing the course:

  • Feeling more relaxed calm and content
  • A reduction in anxiety and depressive episodes
  • Improved sleep 
  • A better handling of the overthinking mind
  • Improved concentration
  • Enjoying the present moment
  • Less reactive and angry
  • Feeling more grateful for life and the everyday things
  • Deeper understanding into why their mind is the way it is and where that stems from. 

This is an experiential course. The main emphasis is on mindfulness meditation practices and reflection exercises. The sessions are run on a weekly basis, for a duration of 2hrs you can opt for a group course or a 1-1 personal course. Please note there is homework in the form of mindfulness practices that participants would need to commit to (change only happens from putting the work in, there is no quick fix).

Recent feedback includes:

8-week Compassion Based Living Course

8-week Compassion Based Living Course

It’s often been said that Mindfulness and Compassion are two wings of a bird. You cannot have one without the other. This is especially true in times of difficulty.

The 8-week Compassion Based Living Course is a follow on from the 8-week Mindfulness Based Living Course. It supports further development of our self- compassion and compassion for others and in my own experience has improved the relationship I have with myself and those around me.

The course explores cultivating self-compassion and learning a new way of relating to ourselves. Instead of meeting our imperfections and challenges with self-blame or criticism, we learn to become more accepting and kind to ourselves, even in difficult situations. This is developed through a range of guided mindfulness practices, which encourage us to strengthen qualities, including kindness to ourselves and resilience.

Throughout the 8 weeks, you will access a range of guided mindfulness practices and teachings. Some of the topics we will be investigating are:

  • Why practice compassion?
  • The Compassionate Mess
  • It is not our fault – an evolutionary perspective
  • Creating conditions of safeness
  • Befriending the self-critic
  • Finding the compassionate friend within
  • The Four Compassionate Qualities
  • Widening the circle of compassion

The investment for the 8- week group course is £185

The investment for the 8-week 1-1 course is £275 (payment is requested upon booking, instalment are an option)

Hi, I’m Paula

Hi, I’m Paula

 I used to struggling with anxiety, depression and confidence issues it started from a very young age and continued into adulthood, later in life I was diagnosis with having multiple sclerosis. At this point I decided to take my health and wellness into my own hands as conventional approaches did not work form me, I wanted to become as healthy in my mind and body as I could possibly be. Now I don’t want to sound overdramatic but mindfulness saved me, it saved me from my overthinking mind. Did all of my problems disappear? No, but having struggled with anxiety and depression learning how to be with my mind was a huge development. I started to peel away the layers the stories, the out dated self-limiting beliefs I had spun over the years. I learnt how to sit with difficult emotions and buried emotional pain; for the first time I understood that emotions can bond themselves right into our muscles, our bones, our soul if not addresses resulting in mysterious soreness, aches, pains, stiffness and disease. I started looking into holistic approaches such as reiki and energy medicine movement and diet. Fast forward too many years!! and my passion for mindfulness and holistic therapy grew and grew and from it just being something just for me, I decided that I wanted to share the gift of mindfulness and energy medicine with others.

I am now a fully qualified mindfulness teacher trained through the Mindfulness Association and the British School of Mindfulness. My training is never done each year I continue to deepen my knowledge and teaching with regular training, CPD, supervision and silent retreats. I am also trained in energy work alongside other practices (see holistic treatments page).

I like to work very intuitively and as a teacher we are taught to teach through our own experiences. It always feels like a massive privilege when a client or organisation chooses me to help them bring about personal change and growth. 

Who would have known that my greatest struggles and challenges in life would end up being my greatest teachers offering me the opportunity to help so many others from children to adults, and schools to corporate events.
