This session will be led by experienced Breathworks teacher Claire Morris.

Claire specialises in one-to-one mindfulness coaching from her home in Manchester or via skype/ phone. Using the Breathworks 8 week mindfulness for stress/ health course as a framework, Claire will work with you to tailor the course so that it focuses on the areas in your life where you want to bring more mindfulness and compassion. Want to have a chat and see what we could achieve together? Please give me a bell. I would be very happy to receive your call and tell you more.

Client Feedback: 'Receiving mindfulness coaching from Claire has been life changing. I wanted to change things in my life because i was experiencing work related stress and losing my best friend and father in close succession left me experiencing trauma. It’s a journey I am on now, i am on the right track to having a better life, and i am going to carry on the mindfulness and kindfulness which will continue to have a positive impact not just for me but for my family, friends and colleagues. I feel like a different person'

As well as being the founder of Wild Awake Mindfulness where she engages people in mindfulness and nature connection, Claire delivers mental health, mindfulness and resilience training for Manchester Mind, and co-delivers the Practitioner Training Programme at Mind in Salford, training and supervising practitioners to become mindfulness teachers. She also works with business and workplaces to bring about positive change for staff.

Claire has had a meditation practice for over 10 years and attends meditation retreats at least twice a year which ensures she is able to teacher from a place of deep personal practice. She is registered with the UK Mindfulness Network as an accredited Breathworks teacher.
