These sessions cover a variety of themes and provide strategies to practise which help cultivate a sense of space and ease within your day to day pressures.
The session includes both guided seated and lying down meditation practises.
A 60 min weekly Just Practise session. This runs early Friday (5:45pm) eve to help you wind down and relax you into the weekend. This is chance for an extended guided lying down meditation practise with a little time for shared reflection.
A Half Hour Power Down weekly session. This runs for half an hour over lunchtime 12:30-1pm on a Friday. It is a lying down guided meditation practise which is open to anyone who wants to rebalance and reboot over lunchtime.
1:1 sessions. These are available at mutually agreeable times weekdays. You can access a course of sessions in this way if you would prefer not to be part of a group.
Monthly workshops. These offer the chance to connect with a mindful practice if committing to regular weekly sessions isn’t an option for you. We cover a range of helpful topics such as ”sleep’, ‘Befriending The Body’, ‘Mindful Eating and Nutrition’, ‘Mindful Parenting’ and more. You can subscribe to our monthly newsletter to keep up to date with these events.
Kids Classes. Both Fiona and her colleague Sue Gillott provide after school classes for various primary schools in Sheffield. These are an hour long and provide children with a necessary quiet space to explore a range of mindfulness exercises, the basics of meditation and relaxation and time for some mindful eating together. If you are interested in this for your school or in organising a ‘Wellbeing’ day to promote mindfulness please contact us.

Examples include WI groups, annual staff training for teachers of the hearing impaired, class provision for staff at Wicker Pharmacy Ltd, NHS staff at CCG Darnall, NHS staff at Health Education England, PHD students at Sheffield University, Charity Events and a variety of Primary schools.
Mindfulness in the workplace. There is some capacity to provide a weekly class for staff within the workplace if based in Sheffield. You can contact us to arrange an introductory session and move forward from there.
Here is how I can help you achieve your goals
We can help you if too much stress, anxiety or concern in any area is dominating your head space and you feel it’s affecting your health or sleep and this is holding you back from living the life you want. We have strategies to share that can really help you find a calm amidst the pressure.
We can help you if the spark has gone from life and you aren’t finding the enjoyment in the things you once were. If you’re keen to live this one life you have more fully without holding onto frustration, you can explore a different approach. Our strategies can help you find your way to rediscovering simple pleasures that are passing you by.
We can help you if you take a keen interest in your health and self-improvement and would like to increase your mental stamina, have sharper focus or memory. You may want to free yourself from the inner critic often holding you back. The meditation exercises we share provide brain training which can alter the structure and function of your brain to help support you better.
