My name is Tanya Wells. I am a Mindfulness teacher based in Sheffield and I run Mindfulness courses and sessions for companies, the general public and also for children. I offer groups sessions and one-to-one sessions.
I came to Mindfulness when I was working as an A&E nurse: a friend introduced me to it and I saw at first hand the value it could be to many of the people I worked with - patients and colleagues, as well as friends, family and the general public. I have been developing my personal practice and teaching ever since.
I started with an 8 week Mindfulness- Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course - like the ones I now offer, and then continued training to teach MBSR with Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice (CMRP) one of the UK’s leading centres for Mindfulness research and practice; and the ‘Peace in a Frantic World’ Course with the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. I continue to develop my own personal practice and teaching skills with Bangor University CMRP and as well as with other leading Mindfulness organisations.
I have also been training and working with the Mindfulness in Schools Project for a number of years. I currently teach: .b ('dot Be' - Stop, Breathe and Be) for 12-18 year olds, Paws .b (Pause, Breathe and Be) for 7-11 year olds, and .b Foundations for teachers and other adults working with children.
I am on the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations Listing for teachers recognized as meeting the UK Good Practice Guidance. I teach in accordance with the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teachers Good Practice Guidelines and consequently work closely with a registered UK Mindfulness Network supervisor.
