“The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness.” - Jon Kabat Zinn
At the moment .....
- You are reaching a burnout
- You are suffering from stress and anxiety
- You are feeling out of balance and not centred
- You feel that your performance is lower than what your potential is
- You lack focus or concentration, it seems you cannot pay attention to whatever you are doing
- You might be feeling that you lack the self discipline necessary to achieve your goals, or maybe you procrastinate to do good things
- Communication is something that you struggle with, you feel you are misunderstood or you are not listened to, or maybe you feel you do not say the right words so it creates tension in your relationships
- You realise that you need to take care more of yourself
- You feel emotionally all over the place, and it is hard to regulate your emotions
- You are mentally drained, or you feel like you have brain fog
- You suffer from chronic pain conditions
- You are an emotional eater, and have negative eating habits or patterns
- You would like to become more self aware, understand yourself more
- You are facing a challenging moment in your life and feel that everything is collapsing
- You are feeling a sense of unhappiness
Then the 'Reclaim your Life' Programme is for you
The programme I facilitate can be delivered in a group setting or else as a tailored 1-1 coaching programme is accredited by the EFT & Mindfulness Centre.
It is research based, designed to help you restore your balance, reclaim your happiness and live a purposeful life. It will help you to achieve freedom from stress and overwhelm through cultivating self awareness, encouraging you to practice self care and self compassion and building positive mind habits.
You will become more mindful as a way of life as you start paying attention to each and every moment in your life without judgement and with self compassion. You will become more connected to yourself, others and the world. You will become more present and awake to life.
As you practice the attitudes of mindfulness in your daily life, you feel free, more balanced and happier. Life becomes more meaningful and purposeful. If you would like to know more about the attitudes of mindfulness, read my blog article.

1-1 Mindfulness Coaching
1-1 Mindfulness Coaching is designed for busy people who might find it challenging to attend group sessions on a regular basis due to time constraints or other commitments. Whilst covering all the 6 week course material, they are more flexible in approach, time and skills wise so that the individual feels empowered to develop a sustainable mindfulness practice and skills that he/she can implement into their specific day to day life. In view that they are individual, the coaching sessions will be personalised to our own needs.
Mindfulness encourages a sense of openness, curiosity and reflection, and enables one to explore ways of stepping beyond the limitations of set beliefs, and habitual unhelpful behaviour patterns. The coaching and teaching is offered from a place of embodied presence and awareness offering a greater opportunity for transformation.
The insight gained during the sessions opens new avenues into creative ways of working with life changes . When the mind is allowed to settle, calm down and becomes present, a new solution will often emerge which is both more skilful and effective than forcing and pushing things through.
I recommend 6 sessions (60-75 mins each) spread over a period of 6 weeks to 12 weeks.
I also offer 1-1 mindfulness coaching sessions designed specifically for you to tackle a specific problem you are facing. This is suitable for anyone who wants to learn mindfulness as a way to manage anxiety, stress and overwhelm.
Mindful Eating Workshops
- Have you tried all the diets in the world but you cannot sustain them and stick to them?
- Are you a yo-yo dieter? Or maybe you are overweight, always on a diet but you never seem to loose weight or you loose weight but you quickly regain it?
- Does food control your life? Or maybe do you have a love hate relationship with food?
- Do you eat but then you are filled with guilt or shame and you hate yourself for the food you have eaten?
If you would like to transform your current circumstances, I invite you to experience mindfulness through this mindful eating workshop. This is a workshop of self discovery, self awareness, understanding of our eating habits and our relation with food and more importantly with our body.
This Mindful Eating workshop is an experiential and interactive workshop. It will include videos, discussion, reflections, practices and exercises. Following participation you will receive mindfulness practice audios, copy of the workshop slides and a mini workbook to support you in your personal journey.
This workshop has been delivered by myself as an expert of the Weight Matters Project (http://weightmatters.eu) that aims in supporting many to loose / manage weight loss in a holistic way. The participants have found the workshop very insightful and has given them a different perspective on life not just on food. Loosing weight requires a positive mindset and a positive relationship with self.
Mindful eating doesn’t involve any dieting or restricting any food types. With mindfulness, you eat whatever you want. You learn to stop eating when your taste buds tell you the taste is no longer as good. When you are mindful, you notice how the chocolate or chips don’t actually taste as good after the third or fourth bite.
In my blog article, I share how mindful eating can support you in managing your weight in a healthy manner.
