Carolyn combines the 23 years experience she has as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS, working across all age ranges in Mental Health, with her absolute, heartfelt dedication to and experience in meditative practices, predominately the liberating power of resting deeply.
Knowing ourselves deeply, welcoming the whole of life, trusting we are absolutely part of it & belong, supporting others to be more at ease, to find friendliness towards themselves and their experience has been and continues to be a lifelong passion of hers.
Carolyn's own practice (which combines meditation, silence, nature & basically everything that comes my way) has revealed what is possible when she stops trying to reach out beyond herself for answers, for satisfaction. She continues to be curious and open to what we are really capable of when the pressure is off and the kindness is on!
Carolyn is delighted to offer this class for Satyam Yoga centre
Sue trained with Bangor University to teach the 8 weeks Mindfulness course 4 years ago and has been teaching it to both groups and 1-1 students since then. She runs a monthly follow up meditation/ mindfulness session for students who have done the course with her.
Sue personally practise Mindfulness as she thinks she’s exactly the sort of person who needs it! Sue, like most people, finds herself always busy. She sais she also has a tendency, under stress, to react in a very emotional way to a variety of situations..... which is often unhelpful. Sue has a large family, social and work life, and therefore many relationships to keep on track. Mindfulness, which she started practising regularly 8 years ago, has had an immeasurable effect on every aspect of her life - which is why she has so enjoyed teaching it for the last 4 years. Sue sais her unhelpful reactions to life's complications have diminished greatly thanks to the regular practice (although life is always a work in progress, which she now also accepts)!
Sue has been a massage therapist for 25 years, a BWY-trained Yoga teacher for 15 years and also for 40 years she’s been a school teacher in primary, secondary and special schools. Sue very much looks forward to sharing time on the course with you.
