A bit more about me...
My name is Dee Rooney and I live in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK. I use my life experiences of loss (bereavement, redundancy, divorce), anxiety, burn-out as a teacher and trauma, and the strategies I developed to overcome, and heal, in my teaching as a therapeutic mindfulness teacher. I consider myself a "HSP - highly sensitive person" and attune with people at a deep and connected level. I balance directness and gentle challenge with kindness and empathy in my work.
I am a fully qualified 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 have practiced mindfulness myself since I was a teenager. I am very inspired by, and was a student myself of Titch Nat Hahn, a global spiritual leader. Whilst I am indeed spiritual myself and incorporate wisdom from Buddhism, into my practices, my work remains entirely secular and non-religious. You can see my qualification, gained with Mindfulness UK, on the qualifications page.
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 follow all the practice guidelines for student counsellors set out in the National Counselling Society (NCS) Framework in our sessions together and I use my counselling skills to enhance our mindfulness work together.
I look forward to meeting you.
