As a small business owner and a mum, I understand that life is busy and it can be challenging at times to juggle all of life’s demands. I felt intuitively that there was a more skilful way to better manage work and home life.
I’d been curious about mindfulness for some time and decided to do the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course (8 week) and then the Advanced Deepening and Extending Mindfulness for Life (12 week). I found it fascinting and transformational.
So in 2021 I completed the training to teach Mindfulness Based Interventions (MBI) with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre, NHS Trust (1 year). I chose this centre because it is closely linked with Oxford Mindfulness Centre and BAMBA and has teacher training of the highest level. This qualification is maintained with on-going supervision.
The MBI training incorporates skills-based learning approaches, giving you the ability to apply the theory and practice in real life. This style of learning deepens your understanding and create new habits which positively impact you and those around you.
Since then I have been asked to work with individuals and workforce groups to help better manage the pressures of demanding workloads, to help alleviate symptoms of stress and potential to burnout, to simply calm the mind and body.
In addition, I am a volunteer counsellor with CRUSE Bereavement Care working 1:1 with clients. This qualification is also maintained with regular supervision and CPD training covering many topics such as mental health awareness, working with trauma, feelings of suicide and so on. It is now widely understood that grief means loss and loss can be significant change or life transition following death, relationship,work or societal shifts such as the Covid pandemic.
I am also trained in SafeTALK and ASSIST suicide awareness.
