Learn DIRECT mindfulness meditation

through 1-on-1 online sessions

  • Do you want to cope with stress better?
  • Are you always feeling anxious or worried?
  • Do you want to rid yourself from the compulsive mental chatter that gets in the way of you doing the things that are important to you?
  • Do you want to increase your sense of happiness and well-being?
  • Or create positive, impactful habits in your life?

Change your mind and rewire your
brain for a better life!

Mindfulness meditation has been proven to help decrease levels of stress and anxiety, prevent relapses of depression, increase immune function, and lower blood pressure among many other benefits. It works by helping you to calm the compulsive chatter in your head and free yourself from your problems and worries. By seeing what is happening more clearly, you can reduce negative patterns of behaviour to find inner peace.

Mindfulness is about changing the reality of our lives by training our minds, so we can learn to live with greater intensity, enhanced clarity, and finding more fulfilment in the everyday experience of life.

Mindfulness is like a gym for the mind

The same way you exercise your body to be better-prepared for daily life and increase your sense of well-being, you can exercise your mind to be better-handle life’s challenges and ultimately, increase your sense of happiness. Think of your mind as a muscle; you start your mind gym session without much success; your attention wanders all the time; your head is full of thoughts and judgements. But slowly, you are better able to lift more weight. Your attention becomes more stable, thoughts arise in a clearer manner, certain judgements no longer bother you.

Mindfulness  works

Mindfulness works! Thousands of scientific studies have shown the positive effects of meditation on your brain. This is not another self-help trend based on positive thinking and self-affirmations. Brain scans show that the brain of someone who meditates regularly is quite different to the scans of their non-meditating counterparts. By learning a different way of paying attention to life, you can literally change your brain and, therefore, your reality. The ability of the brain to change itself is called Neuroplasticity. Scientists have discovered that the brain is constantly evolving – based on the experiences we have – to be better prepared for them in the future.

What kind of Mindfulness do you teach?

I developed my own Mindfulness system that I called Direct Mindfulness by studying methods developed in early Buddhism, studying contemporary teachers such as Shinzen Young, Loch Kelly, and Jon Kabat-Zinn, attending MBSR and MBCT courses, and also as part of my training in ACT(Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).

My method uses the precise scientific language, so you can understand the process underlying mindfulness meditation step-by-step and I focus on bringing Mindfulness to your daily life instead of long hours of sitting meditation. We can even cover some basic brain science and psychology if that appeals to you.

It has no connection with any religious or spiritual traditions.You can practice it if you have faith or no faith at all.

Go beyond the mindfulness app and group sessions

Apps can be great to start and to have some basic ideas of what meditation is, but they lack a structured system that helps you improve your skills over time. You can use them for months without feeling any sense of improvement with regards to your meditation path.

Not to mention the lack of interaction with a teacher who you can discuss your challenges with or receive tailored advice and practice suggestions specifically designed for you and your life. Talking about what you are learning is one of the best ways to make skills like meditation stick.

When it comes to group meditation, they can also be really good but usually, the sessions are dominated by the more extroverted students who do all the talking, leaving the more introverted pupils full of unanswered questions. It’s also really difficult to find a group close to you that suits your schedule and the type of meditation you are looking for.

One-to-one interaction helps to speed up any learning process.

Flexible learning

You don’t need to waste your time commuting to a meditation training centre. You can learn from the comfort of your home. My availability is quite flexible. I usually have free slots Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. till. 7 p.m. There are also some slots available on Friday and Saturday.

Learn from a qualified teacher. I’ve been practising Mindfulness for 7 years, attended countless courses, workshops, and a couple of 10-day, 7-day, and weekend retreats. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Regent’s University London, a BA in Philosophy, and I worked as a Philosophical Counsellor in the past. I've trained in ACT - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - with Dr. Russ Harris, best-seller author.
