Being a Reiki master & teacher works hand in hand with Mindfulness and meditation, I practice both daily and this is the foundation in everything I do.
I have over 15 years experience teaching mindfulness meditation from individuals and small groups to local school children in group sessions at school.
I also teach Teachers to use mindfulness and meditation as a tool to use on themselves, Great for when everything is getting a little too much.
Using mindfulness during stressful situations like exams or interviews is another great tool.
So what actually is Mindfulness
Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that involves focusing your mind on your experiences (like your own emotions, thoughts, and sensations) in the present moment.
Mindfulness meditation can involve breathing practice, mental imagery, awareness of body and mind, and muscle and body relaxation.
The meditation technique aimed at focusing the mind on the present moment is an effective treatment for depression, anxiety and times when you feel you can not cope.
Mindfulness and mental health
Mindfulness is recommended as a treatment for people with mental health symptoms as well as those who want to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
There are also different sorts of mindfulness meditation which can help people in different ways. Evidence shows compelling support for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), which helps people to cope with stress, and for Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), which is designed to help people with recurring depression providing a flexible set of skills to manage mental health and support wellbeing.
I offer mindfulness and meditation sessions either on a one to one basis or in small groups.
Talking to your GP is a great place to start and they will be able to see if Mindfulness and meditation can help you.
