A bit more about me...
My name is Dee and I live in Malvern. I'm a mother of two daughters and an ex- teacher, having worked for 30 years in education, until 2019. I love dogs and nature. I consider myself a "HSP" which certainly helps me to relate to people at a deep and connected level, with kindness and understanding. I have a lived experience of finding my own way through overwhelm, grief, loss and trauma.
I have practiced Mindfulness since a teenager. I am fully qualified as a Mindfulness teacher; my Level 4 qualification is fully accredited and was awarded by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body. I follow the Good Practice Guidelines of the British Association of Mindfulness-based Approaches (BAMBA). I am very inspired by, and was a student myself of Titch Nat Hahn, a global spiritual leader, who Martin Luther King nominated for a Nobel Peace prize. Whilst I am indeed spiritual myself and incorporate wisdom from Buddhism into my practices, my work remains entirely secular and non-religious.
Whilst facilitating therapeutic meditation does not require any formal counselling qualification, you may be reassured to know that I am also a student counsellor, working towards full qualification, as an integrative therapist, specialising in grief, loss and trauma. I am already qualified, via an accredited course, to level 3 as a counsellor. I use my counselling skills to enhance our mindfulness work together. I am a student member of the NCS. I have a supervisor and insurance to practice as a student counsellor and I am a bereavement volunteer with Cruse. I am also trained and qualified as an Emotional Freedom Technique practioner and teacher, which is useful for helping clients manage negative thinking and uncomfortable feelings.
I work hard to help my clients to feel that they are safe to be fully their true self and to experience a safe and accepting space to express that.
I look forward to meeting you.
