Mindfulness can be described as bringing our awareness to the present moment.
Counselling and coaching techniques combine well with mindfulness, to bring our attention to each moment. When we are fully present we have space to choose how we would like to feel.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and life coach with a wealth of tools and approaches.
Listening meditations or walking meditations can easily be integrated into our lives, after studying Zen Buddhism with Zen Master Dae Gak Sunim, learning Zen mediation and ethics, I spent six years practicing Ki Aikido with both the Ki-Federation and the Ki-Society. Aikido seeks to combine balance and movement with focused intention. I was awarded a First Dan Black Belt.
Acupuncture to calm the mind.
Acupuncture can also be used to create a deep sense of relaxation and well being, in a similar way that meditation does. While you are having acupuncture treatment you are brought to focus on how you feel right now.
We have known for a long time that Acupuncture releases endorphins, our own feel-good body chemistry, but it has a wealth of other calming emotional effects too. We have points to strengthen hope and lift our spirit.
The points for emotional balance can be added to a treatment for a physical complaint, or if preferred they can be the centre of your treatment.
