What is Meditation and How it Can Help You

This is a workshop for The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre, Lancaster Road, Enfield, EN2 0BX1.30-3.45 Friday 28th November 2014

 

This workshop is part of the centre's 'Friday Feel-Good sessions' and will cover questions like:

What is Meditation?

How can it help me?

How do I do it?

What are the different types and which is best for me?

I will lead 5 different mediations throughout the afternoon, giving each participant a range of experiences as well as dispelling common myths around the subject.

This is an invitation-only workshop, however, if you would like me to run something similar for your organisation, please get in touch on 07961 389 030.

Meditation for Beginners Workshop

Sunday April 13th 2014

 2-5pm at The North London Yoga Studio, 4, Vera Avenue, Grange Park, London , N21 1RA.

This workshop is aimed at those who are new to meditation. If you have always been keen to give meditation a try but are unsure of where to start, this is perfect for you. We will be learning how to breathe fully and why breathing is so good for us. We will also learn about how to relax our muscles through simple stretching and breathing techniques, which can help us reduce the feelings of stress in our minds and tension in our bodies. We will also enjoy a longer relaxation in the form of visualisation, at the end of the session.

I will explain the basic principles behind the stress response – ‘fight or flight’ and show how meditation can not only help alleviate the symptoms of stress, but also help you manage the causes of stress. Finally we will cover some simple exercises which you can practise at home, and I will share some online resources which may help you.

To book this workshop contact me or call Jackie on: 07941 468576.

Relax Kids One-to-Ones

I have started running one-to-one sessions for parents with their child at their home. This allows the child to be comfortable in their own environment, and it means that the work we do together is in context for the child. They are able to learn new skills and have fun in their own home. It also means that once I have left, the parent is the one who implements the recommendations and so the child understands that it is part of a home-life routine, not just something they do with someone else.

I show you how to make the most of the Relax Kids products, and help you to choose the ones which are most relevant to your child. Together we come up with ideas of how to help your child whether it's to do with calmer bedtimes, sleeping on their own, anger management, hyperactivity and how to calm themselves down... and many more.

Contact me if you would like to find out how I can support your child.

Improve Your Self Confidence Workshop

 

I often hear people say that they would love to do certain things in their lives, but feel that they don't have the confidence. I also hear people say 'X is so confident. I wish I had his/her confidence and self-belief.' The truth is that everyone has areas of confidence and other places where they feel less sure of themselves. If your level of confidence has been holding you back, isn't it time to do something about it?In this workshop we begin building our internal resources so that we can increase our confidence in the area of our choice. Some of the areas people frequently speak to me about are:

  • Confidence in social situations
  • Confidence in the workplace
  • Confidence in public speaking
  • Confidence in body image
  • Confidence in parenting 
  • Confidence in self image
  • Confidence in own sense of style
  • Confidence in personal relationships
  • Confidence in applying for jobs
  • Confidence in rejoining work after a baby
  • Confidence in following career dreams
  • Body confidence
  • Self sufficiency – relying on oneself, autonomy
  • Self efficacy – belief in one’s own ability to succeed
  • Confidence in sex and sexuality 
  • Confidence in communication – saying what you mean, asking for help, saying ‘no’
... amongst a whole host of other areas - this list is not exhaustive!
