Belinda Freeman Mindfulness trainer, coach, psychotherapist, MBCT,MBSR, MBCP teacher.
I would like to share my journey to mindfulness and why I have a passion for teaching Mindfulness based Interventions.
As a child I have chronic asthma, eczema and allergies. As a child and adult, I have spent hours struggling to breath/survive, and focusing on breathing.
I was lucky enough to go to a specialist asthmatics school for a few months where the physiotherapist taught me abdominal breathing! By the time I was 18, I had maxed out my steroid intake and decided to try Traditional Chinese Medicine, nutrition and self-help.
I have 2 lovely children/adults. I have experienced: physical and emotional pain, chronic illness, emotional turmoil, trauma and life’s challenges and opportunities. I have weathered the storms of life so far and am very well. I rarely take any medication, just occasional natural self-care. I enjoy life to the full, creatively, exploring what is, dancing, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, walking, learning, meditating and supporting others in becoming more open to the adventure of doing things differently, curious, cultivating choices, like a detective working out what is just a story of our mind and what is the present moment reality in all is natural beauty.
This is the source of my wellbeing, passion and inspiration.
I started Tai Chi Chuan, meditation training and natural therapeutics. I changed my career, and studied Intuitive approaches, aromatherapy, therapeutic massage, pregnancy health care, nutrition, shiatsu, reflexology, Alexsander technique and dance. In 1999, I started training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and Counselling and continued with extensive CPD in CBT, Trauma, NLP, CBH, Coaching, Qi gong healing, the embodiment of trauma and stress, Neuroscience and Mindfulness based interventions. I yearn to learn more knowledge about being human, like slowly putting a jigsaw together!
I work as a part time, self-employed practitioner at my Central London Clinic offering Integrative, relational psychotherapy, mindfulness Interventions coaching or treatments.
I also offer Mindfulness based cognitive therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction and mindfulness based childbirth and parenting for organisations like Soho House, Work Well-being, Third Space.
I am also a regular teacher of Mindfulness based Stress reduction and cognitive therapy at London Mindfulness Project, Soho house group, Work wellbeing, Third Space to name a few..
