Enjoy life to the full
Know what feels good around you
More than finding peace and quiet in yourself
Yes, Mindfulness is very much about coming into the present moment and finding peace and quiet in yourself in a busy and sometimes chaotic world. However it is also a profound therapeutic process.
Mindfulness as a Therapy
What we do
Many of my Coaching clients are also introduced to some Mindfulness techniques and they may not realise it.
- Visual – you create images in your mind about situations and have thoughts
- Auditory – you hear conversations in your head and work effectively with this to resolve issues
- Kinesthetic – you feel emotions through sensations in your body and can clear them easily
Mindfulness brings more joy in your life
Practice makes perfect
There are so many different techniques you can learn to develop a mindfulness approach in your life and most are simple and natural to do.
Like everything we learn, what makes it effective and life enhancing is regular practice.
As a result of practicing mindfulness, you will experience :
“Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience”

What I learned from Mindfulness and Meditation Training
During my intense 500 hour Yoga training, 19 years ago, I was offered Transcendental Meditation, (sometimes referred to as the TM Technique) which is a form of silent meditation that involves the use of a silently-used sound called a mantra. I still use it from time to time in my spiritual practice.
We also received weekly Mindfulness training sessions. The primary teaching was based on making the present moment your ultimate intention in everything you do. I found this teaching to be invaluable and a great discipline, The book The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle also became my spiritual practice.
Mindfulness Meditation practice is different to Transcendental Meditation. It is easier to learn and practice for most people and has a less disciplined approach.
Group Mindfulness Programmes using MBSR Training
7 years ago I trained in the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR as commonly recognised) programme and I began running 8 week public and workplace courses workshops.
This programme helps a range of people wishing to learn the Mindfulness Techniques in a structured format.
It is an effective method for both group interaction and learning and also for individuals who prefer a set programme.
There are 2 ways to work with me:
Single Sessions - £75
These 1-Hour sessions are tailored to your own style and goal intentions.
‘Mindful Living’ Course - 8 weeks - £595
In 8 weeks you will learn eight different key techniques in line with the MBSR training.
“Learning mindfulness with Suzy has taught me a great deal about myself, and am now more able to control the thoughts in my head, take time out and relax. Suzy has taught me some invaluable techniques to cope with anxiety and stress which I incorporate into my daily routine, and regular sessions ongoing sessions with her helped to reinforce the learning”
