Speaker information

Claire Kelly, Operations Director, leads Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP), a not-for-profit organisation who offer mindfulness training for students and those who work with them. Claire is a teacher trainer and teaches mindfulness to children, teenagers and adults. Claire also runs introductory workshops and INSET training on mindfulness for students and teachers, and has a passionate interest in how mindfulness might support those studying and working in high-pressure or competitive environments. She trained as a teacher of adult MBSR (Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction) with Bangor University.

Mindfulness is a secular, well-researched, and very effective means of promoting a sense of wellbeing, alleviating anxiety and depression.

This session will include a brief introduction to what mindfulness is (and isn’t), discuss research evidence for its benefits, and some very simple mindfulness practices to explore some key themes including:

  • Waking up from autopilot
  • How to listen with full attention
  • Strategies for dealing with anxiety and difficult thoughts
