Mindfulness

As a mindfulness coach, my aim is to help you establish a practice that works for you and to eradicate any misconceptions or issues that may stand in the way of this life-enhancing way of being. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction has become increasingly popular over the last few years with individuals and organisations recognising the benefits that can be gained by embarking on a more mindful life experience.

Mindfulness – what is it?

So, what is mindfulness? It is simply the practice of the presence of the awareness of the action of the present moment. It is the practice of paying full attention to what is occurring in the present moment, to whatever arises in the present moment, moment by moment, within and outside of ourselves. There is no judgement or analysing; purely the observation or witnessing of the present moment. Sound easy? Like anything new it can take a while to get to grips with but you really can’t ‘do it wrong’. 

The recognised approach to becoming more mindful is to establish a form of meditation practice so that you literally train your mind how to become focused in this way. As a result, sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously you will find that you become more present in your day to day life. It still amazes me how taking the time out to practice being mindful actually creates more time, it’s as if the increased focus and sense of wellbeing allows for tasks to be completed more quickly and efficiently

Are you ready?

If you feel motivated to begin a mindfulness practice there are some wonderful free resources online to help you do just that. I offer 1-2-1 mindfulness coaching as well as small group sessions and frequently mindfulness is something I encourage with clients as an adjunct following other forms of therapy.

In a world which often seems driven by doing and activity, encouraging a state of mindfulness can remind us of our sense of being, our human being’ness, and bring about a calmer more purposeful presence in each moment.
