Be Here 

"The aim of life is to live.

And to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware." 

- Henry Miller

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the practice of being present - in the 'here and now' - noticing our thoughts, feelings and sensations with acceptance, compassion and non-judgement.

Mindfulness = awareness in the present moment, wherever you are and whatever you are doing

Meditation = the act of sitting (usually) and bringing your attention to a chosen focus e.g. the breath

Neither Mindfulness nor meditation are about 'getting rid of thoughts' or 'emptying the mind' as is commonly misunderstood. It is really the process of observing your thoughts, and noticing the space between them.

When we learn to do this we open ourselves up to more choice, more peace and more happiness.

Mindfulness in counselling

As Mindfulness is all about awareness, acceptance, compassion and non-judgement it integrates seamlessly into my counselling work. If appropriate, I can teach you meditations, techniques and perspectives to help you work with your emotions to gain more clarity, calm and compassion for yourself and others.
