Mindfulness – One to One

Mindfulness – One to One

Mindfulness One-to-One sessions are personalised just for you, allowing you to proceed at a pace and at a time that suits you.

There are two forms of mindfulness practice. The first is the formal practice of mindfulness, which is commonly referred to as meditation.  A meditation practice is commonly done sitting, usually with eyes closed, but can also be done lying down. Some meditation practices also involve movement or walking.

The second mindfulness practise is informal practice which is for the rest of your life! Anything we do in daily life with full awareness can be done mindfully – like doing the dishes, waiting at the traffic lights or go for your morning walk. Any routine activity can be made into a mindfulness practice when you bring your full attention to it.

Potential benefits of Mindfulness:

  • A greater connection with the body, equipping us to understand the impact our thoughts have on our bodies

  • Improved personal relationships, as mindfulness helps place a check on automatic reactions

  • An acceptance of troublesome thoughts and emotions

  • Improvements to memory, concentration and cognitive ability

  • A dramatic reduction in levels of stress and anxiety

  • Better sleep

  • An improved relationship with pain as we learn how to accept pain, become more at ease with it instead of being locked in constant struggle with it

  • A general feeling of wellbeing

  • A rise in productivity brought about by being able to deal with distractions more effectively

  • Creativity may increase as we learn to let go of doubts that otherwise might be a hindrance to creativity

“I joined a choir and was rather anxious about performing.  After doing a Mindfulness course with Joan I now feel excited about performing.  I am now not only performing in a choir but also occasionally I sing solo’s, a million miles away from where I thought I would ever be.”
