(8-week Mindfulness for Wellbeing Course)

“I had no experience of mindfulness or meditation and had been suffering with anxiety for a couple of years. I was slightly apprehensive about whether I would be able to sit still for about an hour and think about stuff, or not think about stuff. But John’s gentle, open and practical teaching style made me feel very much at ease and put my nerves to rest.

From the first week of the course onwards I have found that it has gifted me with the ability to actually be calm without having to in some way inebriate or exhaust myself; firstly with the Body scan which I looked forward to doing each day, and especially the mindfulness of breath.

Progressively each week I found that I was enjoying using the insights that I was taught. The mindfulness of breath is something that I now use every day. I have learned to recognise when anxious feelings arise that I can let them go and that being aware of my breathing helps massively.

As I continued to practice over the weeks I found that having the opportunity each week to discuss the weeks experiences of meditation with John very helpful. As a teacher myself I know that listening is a really important part of being an effective teacher; John clearly listened to me and his insights into my experiences were very illuminating and helpful.

I have missed the class since it finished, and am hoping that John will run some more soon that I can go to!”

John Nolan and Joy Taylor are independent Sheffield-based mindfulness teachers.  They combine mindfulness with other mind-management and holistic health improvement technologies to help people get our of their mental ruts and into the flow of living a more pleasurable and meaningful life.

We can all sometimes get stuck in a ‘mode’ we can’t get out of 

depression-head-with-cloudy-thoughtsWhen difficult stuff happens out of the blue, we’re rarely mentally equipped to deal with it. If we don’t get the right help we can end up ill, depressed, chronically tired, chronically angry, or just, well, mentally discombobulated.

Consciously and logically you may think that you “should” be able to deal with things and get past it, but for some reason you can’t seem to get enough traction to move forward.

So where do you start looking to get the right kind of help?

We help independent minded people get past traumas, difficulties and awkward situations so they’re free to enjoy more of their life now and into the future.

We can teach you how to get enough space in your head so you’re able to work out what’s what, rather than you being pulled and pushed by random thoughts and feelings.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • Are you finding it difficult to get on with your business because your mind’s avoiding focussing on what has to be done? 
  • Does it sometimes seem as if you’re running in a hamster wheel inside your own head?
  • Do you sometimes feel as if your mind is holding you hostage from your life?
  • Do you sometimes get overwhelmed with worries or regrets?
  • Do you find yourself to be absent minded – with your head ‘off somewhere else’ rather than where you actually are, or need to be?
  • Are you finding it more difficult to engage and connect with people?
  • Does it seem as if things and people around you are becoming overwhelmingly annoying?
  • Does your life seem unsatisfactory – lacking in meaning or value?
  • Do you find you’re losing your sense of self in all your ‘busyness’?
  • Are you getting fed up and bored with feeling out of sorts?

mind-puzzle-putting-all-back-togetherIf so, we might just be the people to help you…

From our 40 years combined experience we understand how minds work; how they can work against us; how they can be understood and worked with to give you a better life experience.

We want to share this knowledge so you can better understand your own difficult situations and constructively get beyond them.

We provide private mindfulness classes, bespoke therapeutic coaching and group mindfulness courses in Sheffield.
