And when you come to a meeting of many ways and do no know which to choose, do not choose at random, but pause and reflect. Breathe with the trusting, deep breaths you took when you first came into the world...Be still and listen to your heart.
Susanna Tamaro, Italian writer

What is 'Mindfulness' and how can it help?
Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally (Full Catastrophe Living, - Jon Kabat-Zinn). This means developing the ability to pay deliberate attention to our experience from moment to moment. We learn to tune in to what is going on in our mind and body day to day without judging our experience.
Stress and anxiety reduction should be one of life’s main priorities. Stress affects every component of our being. It makes fun things less enjoyable. It makes bad things linger longer. It hurts health, motivation, and the ultimate goal of achieving happiness in life’s adventures.
Becoming more aware of our thoughts, feelings and sensations may not sound like an obviously helpful thing to do, however learning to do this in a way that suspends judgment and self criticism can have surprising results. Many people report finding inner strengths and resources that help them make wiser decisions about their health and life in general.
Most of us find ourselves frequently ‘swept away’ by the current of thoughts and feelings, worries, pressures, responsibilities; wanting things to be different from how they are right now. This can be particularly powerful when we are faced with pain, difficulties and illness that confound our attempts to find a solution or to feel better. Feeling stuck in this way can be draining. Mindfulness can help us to work directly with the struggle we sometimes have in relating to life’s experience and in doing so can really improve the quality of our life.
What are Mindfulness-based approaches?
Mindfulness-based approaches are intended to teach people practical skills that can help with physical and psychological health problems and ongoing life challenges.
Mindfulness-based approaches are an integration of ancient Buddhist practices and philosophy of mindfulness, with current psychological understanding and knowledge, and have no religious context at all. Mindfulness-based approaches are intended to help in pragmatic, practical ways,. Mindfulness is taught through meditation skills which include bringing attention to the breath and the body during stillness and movement
Debs Osborn works with you in partnership to help you improve your life style and health. I have an integrated approach and, following our initial discussion, choose the most appropriate type of therapeutic approach for you individually to achieve better health and to meet your own goals. I treat the whole person, allowing you to decide how much you wish to do at each session and making sure you are moving forward to the life you want to live. My client base includes adults and children.
I am a member of the General Council of Hypnotherapy and National council of Psychotherapy, and mindfulness training with the university of Bangor (these are the main organisations in the UK which ensure that all members adhere to a strict code of conduct). Debs also holds a BA(hons) and has over 20 years experience and success in helping people to deal with a variety of issues such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, weight loss and pregnancy. As a mother of two, Debs knows that mindfulness therapy is a valuable aid to help with many children’s issues such as bed wetting, confidence and bullying.

I was offered the opportunity of some hypnotherapy with Debs to see if she could help with my 13 years of insomnia. What can I say – my life has changed completely The turn around has been amazing. I now get regular peaceful and sound sleep, so the improvement is also sustained. I feel I have energy and a real zest for life!!! I have not felt this way in years and I mean YEARS!!!! My friends and family comment frequently on how much I smile and how I seem so much brighter and happier. I will never be able to thank Debs enough for her help in achieving what I thought was impossible!
