Mindfully being a therapist course
Lots of therapists I have worked with have told me that at the end of the day, they often feel drained. This is because while supporting and caring for others is very rewarding work, it can also be demanding, both physically and emotionally.
By incorporating mindfulness techniques into their work, therapists can help to protect their own health and wellbeing. It can help them be more present in themselves. By being more aware of our body and posture, as well as our energy levels and mental state, we become more aware of all the stresses that we encounter over the course of the day – stresses that, if left unchecked, can leave us feeling exhausted. Being aware of these issues as they arise and relating to them differently through mindfulness can transform our relationship to our work challenges.

Sean Collins trained with Daizan Roshi of Zenways and is a qualified Meditation and Mindfulness teacher trainer for Zenways.
Daizan has this to say of Seán:
“Since he came on Zenways meditation and mindfulness teacher training, I’ve seen a Sean blossom into a first rate teacher of this work. Equally at home in a company boardroom or a forest Sean draws on humour, creativity and a deep personal practice together with a broad range of life experiences to meet his students in a place where they can share non-judgemental presence. I whole-heartedly recommend Sean and his work.”
The Zenways meditation and mindfulness teacher training is unique. It is rooted in the Rinzai Zen tradition. This has a long and distinguished history of teaching meditation for boosting physical and mental health and wellbeing, as well as for grounding, insight, and self-understanding. This course teaches the practices that go beyond simply being good for you. The meditations taught can lead to you finding your true self and living your most powerful life.

Sean is a wonderful teacher – full of humour, warmth and guidance. I believe I could really teach the 8 week course now, truly. If you feel ready to guide others from the heart and not the bank account, sign up immediately. — Jason Bond (2017)
