Mindfulness meditation tutor used to working with vulnerable adults and children - London.

Methodology

My sessions usually start with a settling/quieting exercise and a grounding meditation. Next, a brain teasing activity, and mindful movement, followed by a longer more interactive guided meditation. I also do some mindful songs and play-scripts to vary things.

Experience

I have taught Anxiety Management in Adult Education for eleven years and started incorporating Insight and mindfulness practice into classes. Since then I've expanded my understanding of Vipassana meditation and concentrated on making sessions accessible and relevant to Londoners.

Julia's CV

Julia Baxter
PERSONAL PROFILE

I have eleven years teaching experience in Adult Education devising and delivering discrete courses and programmes for vulnerable adults with mental health challenges. I have also worked in primary schools as a general Teaching Assistant and as a drama worker. I’m used, and able to transform dry psychology/self-help theory into engaging practice; differentiating tasks/activities for ages 3 to 83. Experienced at recognising all learning styles and identifying and meeting people’s needs in a manner that acknowledges the whole person. I naturally work in a way that embraces diversity, remaining alert though to how we can all make assumptions and struggle with maintaining mindful listening. I’m looking for work in an environment that’s stimulating with a healthy stress management strategy.


KEY SKILLS
• Creating accessible worksheets, devising and delivering activities and tasks that people want to get involved in.
• Mental health support: Empathy, listening, clarifying, soft goal setting.
• Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Anxiety Management. MBSR and Somatic approaches.
• Processing feedback.
• Taking a 360 degree view of situations from a variety of ‘shoes’.
• Understanding and overview of England’s mental health system. (Including ‘Recovery’ and ‘Personalised’ methods.)
• Writing specific meditations to appeal to various learning styles, meeting different mental health and emotional needs.
• Maintaining a broad-focused and holistic perspective on assisting someone in a fragile, reactive state of mind, whilst also attending to detail.
• Organised and able to meet deadlines.
• IT literate including Microsoft Word, Email, Internet, Smart games etc
