Hi! I’m Hannah,
I set up Hanni Rose Mindfulness in 2018. I’ve been working in mental health services in and around Bristol since 2006 (after completing a BSc Hons Psychology degree) and love supporting people to overcome adversity and reach their potential. I currently manage a mental health company, which involves supporting a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals.
I started practising Mindfulness in 2014 to help me manage my own stress levels and found it really helped me focus on the present, worry less and appreciate the positives in life. I then wanted to share these tools, so trained as a Mindfulness Teacher.
All I want for you is to...
Offer mindfulness events that are relaxing, warm, engaging and welcoming.
Create a space where you feel able to have a break, especially for those who struggle to prioritise looking after themselves
Meet other like-minded people and learn tools to improve your wellbeing which you can then use at home
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness has a long history in Buddhism and is increasingly being recognised in western society as a therapeutic practice with a wide range of positive effects
“a different door into the same room”- Jon Kabat Zinn.
Mindfulness is the practice of being relaxed but alert in the present moment, which sounds simple, but can be tricky when life is often busy and complicated. Our minds can become preoccupied with memories, regrets, or worries about the future, which can lead to stress, anxiety and low mood.
Mindfulness cultivates an awareness of the ‘here and now’ and appreciation for the moment we are currently experiencing. Mindfulness often focuses on the breath and can be practised formally (through guided meditations and personal practice) or informally (mindful eating, giving someone your full attention during a conversation etc). Gratitude and Compassion (for self and others) are also integral aspects of Mindfulness.
