Veronica Ellis

Veronica has practiced mindfulness for 14 years and is dedicated to bringing mindfulness to individuals, communities, schools and organisations

Mindfulness is essentially very simple: it simply means to be aware of - in touch with - the present moment. And yet, in cultivating this simple and innate capacity, we open up new possibilities for releasing stress, for connecting more deeply with each moment of life, for relating to ourselves and others in new ways.

Mindfulness is not a practice limited to the meditation cushion or something to be done for just 30 minutes a day, rather it is a way of being that can come alive in all situations and all moments of our daily life.

It can have a profound and transformative effect for children, adults and organisations by cultivating compassion, self -awareness, joy and resilience.

Veronica teaches adults, children and teenagers as well as children and young adults with learning difficulties. She has completed Mindfulness teacher training with Bangor University, Youth Mindfulness, Glasgow and Mindfulness In Schools Project, Manchester.

Mindfulness for Life course

The Mindfulness for Life course is an in-depth introduction to mindfulness that draws on best practices from Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and the Western mindfulness tradition. The course is appropriate for those completely new to mindfulness as well as for novices with significant experience.

Participants are expected to commit to home practice and should plan to dedicate 45mins per day to practice. Training in mindfulness is likened to developing a musical or athletic ability - it takes consistent application, so the home practice is necessary for the course to have a meaningful impact.

Cost £250 with some subsidised places available.

This includes course manual, recordings and additional full day retreat with lunch, tea and coffee.

Mindfulness for Teens 10 week course

Mindfulness for Teens is a 10 week mindfulness course aimed at helping young people to feel happier, calmer and cultivate a greater sense of well-being. Each of the 10 lessons teaches a distinct mindfulness skill.

Teenagers who have taken this course report a positive impact in terms of improved concentration, stress reduction, more meaningful communication and a greater sense of calm. Young people learn how to work with difficult mental states such as depressive, ruminative anxious thoughts and low moods in such a way that they don't become overwhelmed by them. The mindfulness practices help' them to deal with the everyday stresses and strains of adolescent life such as exams, relationships, sleep problems and family issues, as well as developing the capacity to nourish happiness and gratitude. The course will be delivered to a very small group of 5-10 young people (16 -17yrs) so please book early to avoid disappointment.
