We believe mindfulness can have an incredibly positive impact on our mental health, which is why we’re running a NEW mindfulness course here at Westmeria Counselling. Run by our counsellor Sheena, this 6 week course is perfect for beginners who would like to learn this wonderful practice.
I run a number of workshops and courses based on the benefits of mindfulness and meditation. My meditation and mindfulness courses focus on building client’s emotional resilience, giving them the tools and knowledge to reduce the negative effects of stress and anxiety on their lives.
Many benefits of developing a regular practice includes the following:-
- Emotional resilience
- Better quality of sleep
- Heightened creativity
- Improved health and wellbeing
- Less stressful reactions to everyday life experiences
- Heightened appreciation of the senses
I have been meditating for over 20 years. I am an ex-teacher, and I am qualified to teach meditation and mindfulness to groups and individuals. I am a member of The British School of Meditation, and I have trained with Mary Neilson, who works as a trainer and consultant in schools.
