In a topsy turvy world at home and work, professional hypnotherapist Tina Bakardzhieva, founder of Oxford Spires Hypnotherapy, has found her mindfulness training very effective in helping clients and companies work more effectively and with greater joy through their mindfulness courses. They start again in November this year and are open for registration via her website.

“Mindfulness training literally re-sculpts your brain. It helps you discover a natural state of mind in which you are focused, present and aware. People who are more skilled at working with their minds and mental states perform better at work,” says Tina, and their family, colleagues and clients benefit from this also.

Those who have been on the mindfulness course report an increased ability to handle stressful situations, an enhanced sense of purpose, increased creativity, a greater capacity for relaxation, improved energy and enthusiasm, and a rise in self confidence among other benefits, and of course the joy is spread to those around them at home and work.

Adults aren’t the only ones to benefit from mindfulness training: “I’m even talking to the head of a local primary in Oxford now, about mindfulness training for their young students to help them and their teachers cope with the stresses of school life,” Tina says.

Tina’s clients’ claims are backed up by science. There is a wealth of neuroscientific evidence since the 1970s to support the beneficial effects of mindfulness training in maintaining mental health, cardiac health, controlling high blood pressure, anxiety, worry and depression. In a management context mindfulness training has also been shown to improve leadership, decision making communication, emotional intelligence and collaboration skills.

A range of courses are available based in Oxford tailored to the needs of the individual group or company and can be accessed by contacting Oxford Spires Hypnotherapy via their website and telephone number.

I am Tina, a qualified Mindfulness-based Awareness Coach (MBAC) and Level Two Mindfulness-based Interventions Teacher. I’ve trained to teach Mindfulness-based Interventions with Susann Herrmann and Albert Tobler, who co-founded London Meditation™ in 1999. LM is recognised and recommended by the Association for Coaching (AC) and UK Network for MBTT.
I am a qualified and insured Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, registered with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I have a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma at The Clifton Practice (branch of the leading hypnotherapy clinic in South West.
Hypnotherapy uses the application of hypnotic techniques to bring about therapeutic change and in a very pleasant and relaxing experience.
I am using hypnotherapy to help you to make changes to your thoughts, feelings, habits or behaviours. Hypnotherapy is safe and natural; it feels just like daydreaming. In this state, your mind is able to take on board new ways of thinking and feeling at deep level. These changes happen easily and permanently.
My motivation to practice mindfulness is a very simple – each moment missed is a moment unlived,each moment missed makes it more likely that I will miss the next moment and live through it cloaked in mindless habits of automaticity of thinking,feeling and doing rather than living in ,out of and through awareness.
Expectations turn up in many forms – from what we expect of ourselves to what others expect of us and we of ourselves- good education- good career- family- children – own house.. As you learn to free yourself from these larger expectations, you can start to notice the smaller ones and not allow them to define your daily experience.Expectations assume a certain result and are future- based.
