Hi, I am Rachel and I am honoured to come and work at Tranquillity to offer my unique brand of creative mindfulness therapy for young people and adults.

Having worked as a Social Worker and within the field of young persons and adult substance misuse work and mental health for many years, I am no stranger to stress and anxiety. Diagnosed with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADHD I have spent my life looking for ways how to improve concentration, focus, fluctuating anxiety levels and emotional reactions to life events.

Five years ago, I discovered Mindfulness and found that way forwards. So impressed with the positivity It brought , I trained to become a Mindfulness Instructor and started to teach Mindfulness Meditation at Leicester De Montfort University and ran the Midweek Mindfulness Programme, an inclusive mindfulness programme for both staff and students . The programme provided accessible mindfulness for students with specific learning differences, anxiety and attention and focus issues as well as staff and students with less busy minds.

Determined to provide practical and accessible mindfulness teaching to all levels of learner I then went onto run “Sherwood Mindful Resilience Against Stress” in Sherwood during 2016. Again, my focus was on providing inclusive mindfulness activity to appeal to all types of learner from the most anxious to the most practised of meditator. Every session had something for everyone and valuable learning to take away.

I have since continued to undertake Mindful Coaching with people experiencing mental health issues and I am interesting in bringing my work to young people and adults in Beeston and Chilwell, as I believe Mindfulness can be so exciting and engaging to every learner.

Drawing upon principles of art and colour therapy and all things creative, fun and practical, my day retreats will guarantee fun, laughter, relaxation and Mindful respite from anxiety and troubling thoughts. Attention span challenged myself, my retreat days are designed to stimulate continual learning and discovery and for everyone. Caring and supportive, I am also on hand to make sure you get the most out of your day, which I guarantee will be anything far from boring!

Alongside day retreats, I also offer Mindful, Wellbeing and Life Coaching to both young people and adults. Using skills gained from undertaking, mental health and wellbeing support work throughout my career, I work with people to find mindful life solutions to life difficulties in ways, which work for them, solutions well beyond labels and clinical diagnosis.

Being mindful is about waking up fully to the lives we live and I understand that for some people this comes with many distractions. Looking towards the route of difficulties alongside symptoms, I also provide Reiki treatments and advice on all aspects of maintaining good wellbeing such as nutrition and exercise, positive activity and support people to overcome addictive behaviours.

I am really looking forwards to meeting with you in the near future and I hope you all benefit, and enjoy what I bring to Tranquillity.
