Mindfulness has always been an integral part of all my NLP therapeutic programmes, as an empowering practice that develops and helps to sustain resilience.
It leads to a way of being that promotes greater curiosity about whatever it is we experience. With practice, mindfulness allows us to train our attention to be more aware of what is actually happening, rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founding father of secular mindfulness, described this skill as ‘being alive and knowing it’.
As a mum of two who spent 20 years working in high-paced jobs in the City, before juggling family life with several businesses, I understand the impact that stress can have and the difference mindfulness can make to the relationship I have with my children.
Equally, my experience as a family therapist has shown me that children of mindful parents also act and react towards daily challenges in a much more positive way.
So if you are a busy, stressed-out mum who would like a bit more love and a lot less stress in your life, why not join me at my next Mindfulness session!
