I deliver well being sessions to groups of staff, students and clients of services. These sessions offer a unique, neuroscience informed combinations of mindfulness, movement and breathwork. The sessions are geared to decreasing levels of anxiety and stress, as well as teaching easy to use tools and hacks that group members can take into their day to day lives. The groups sessions can be personalised to the needs of your staff, students or clients.
I have been creating trainings, university degree modules, workshops and group content since 2003. My train the trainer, psychotherapy, group work and my friendly, direct and fun way of communicating ideas has all informed both my facilitator style, as well as the responsive and personalised content I create.
Sessions can be aimed at specific issues, to develop tools for specific areas of difficulty, such as trauma informed, anxiety reduction, managing fight, flight and freeze responses, tools for building more capacity to manage stress. Or they can be more general sessions geared towards using the skills I teach for overall well being.
I will always interject little pieces of information about the neurobiology of the tools I teach, of anxiety and other stress states, so that learning is an integral and empowering part of the sessions.
What sessions include:
Breathing – Neuroscience informed, I teach a range of breathing techniques that can aid in managing anxiety, reduce stress levels, interrupt overthinking, shut down and disconnection. When practiced regularly, breathwork can improve overall health and our nervous system’s health, so we can better manage stress and live our full potential.
Breathing is the remote control to the brain, changing how you breath is the quickest way to change your state of mind.
My experience of breathwork is varied, from yoga pranayama, Wim Hof, trauma focused, anxiety management techniques and many more.
Mindfulness – I teach mindfulness in ways I hope will feel really accessible, easy to incorporate into your everyday life, with realistic and simple tools to develop mindful and self-compassionate skill. Many people say they “cant do mindfulness”, I believe this is often due to the way they are trying to learn it. I offer a personalised approach, that is informed by years of working as a psychotherapist and teacher.
Mindfulness is simply being present, in this moment, with as little judgment and as much compassion as possible. Using both my learning as mindfulness teacher as well as movement and breathwork, I can aid you in developing mindful tools that work for you.
Movement – based on neuroscience research, I teach simple movements that when practiced regularly can aid in improving stress levels, reduce anxiety and develop some strength and ease in your nervous system.
Types of movement work I am informed by: Hatha and Yin yoga, Somatic movement, Qigong, Feldenkrais ++
Sessions – Can be created to respond specifically to your students, staff or clients needs. My work as a psychotherapist allows my to offer trauma informed and mental health aware sessions to those with recovery needs. I can run self care, stress management sessions for staff and students. All sessions can be personalised, responsive to your organisations needs and aims. They can be one off, part of a series, or regular and on going.
