Having begun to practice mindfulness in the 1990s and teaching since 2013, Gareth has primarily taught groups of people experiencing anxiety, low mood, and/or chronic illness. With 20 years of experience in the field of mental health and wellbeing, he has a keen interest in the contributions mindfulness and compassion can make to the process of psychotherapy and healing. Since Masters studies focused on shamanism, music and altered states of consciousness in 1995, Gareth has explored a variety of therapies and transpersonal psychologies. He is deeply interested in spirituality, both in sacred and secular forms. Over the past few years he has been facilitating ecotherapy and mindfulness in nature events. He loves his work and has a deep commitment to living creatively and with gratitude. Gareth’s work is based in North Staffordshire/South Cheshire.
