the mindfulness approach was founded by Anna Zannides
Anna is a qualified Mindfulness teacher and member of the Mindfulness Association. She started practicing Mindfulness as a way to better cope with her personal struggles, especially after her thirty year marriage ended. Seeing the impact Mindfulness had on her life, she decided to train to teach others how to use Mindfulness approaches to develop resiliance and self compassion.
Anna's philosophy is that self acceptance and self kindness is fundamental to a healthy mind. Her approach, the Mindfulness Approach, is rooted in self-compassion. She assists clients in developing techniques and actions to enhance their awareness as to what is, rather than what was or what should be. Her work principally centres on facing loss and journeying through transitioning stages with authenticity, courage and grace.
Anna has a background in education where she taught in secondary state schools for a decade. She spent several years working as an education adviser nationally supporting schools in some of the most deprived areas of the country.
Anna lived in Cyprus for many years and had various roles in large off shore companies, including finance and shipping. As such she has an understanding of the pressure that comes with working in the business environment.
Anna adheres to the good practice guidelines for Mindfulness teachers. As a member of the Mindfulness Association she regularly attends professional development courses and retreats.
At the Mindfulness Approach we work with people that are in need of the necessary compassion and support to deal with varying degrees of pain and suffering. From relationship struggles to terminal illness, we are experienced in helping to alleviate the anxiety and depression that can follow a trauma or life change.
Through retreats, workshops, bespoke courses or one-to-one sessions, we help people introduce Mindfulness into their daily lives in order to cope better and be happier.
