About Mind For Wellbeing
Programmes and workshops for stress, anxiety and feelings of overwhelm
Working with people with stress, worry, anxiety and feelings of overwhelm
I'm Michelle Drapeau, founder of Mind For Wellbeing.
Mind For Wellbeing runs programmes, workshops and seminars for people experiencing stress, anxiety or feelings of overwhelm. For those looking for 1:1 support, we offer our unique programme of mindfulness-based therapeutic coaching called Shine For Wellbeing™, as well as private, 1:1 mindfulness tuition. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a group option, you may like to book onto our 4 day mindfulness course or join us for one of our range of popular short workshops.
We also work in-house with organisations, which you can read more about here.
I am a stress and anxiety coach and mindfulness teacher working with people experiencing stress, anxiety, emotional exhaustion and feelings of overwhelm. I hold an MSc in Mindfulness-based Approaches (with distinction) from Bangor University and am trained in therapeutic coaching, health & wellbeing cognitive behavioural coaching and performance coaching. For my MSc thesis I researched the potential effectiveness of a mindfulness-based approach as a treatment option for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
I have trained with some great teachers of mindfulness including Rebecca Crane, Suryacitta Malcolm Smith, Karunavira, Jody Mardula, Saki Santorelli and John Peacock, and am privileged to have studied the neuroscience of mindfulness with brilliant cognitive neuroscientist, Dr Dusana Dorjee. I was also part of the editorial team working on the document, Building the Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace, by The Mindfulness Initiative.
I am committed to my ongoing professional development and have undertaken a range of additional training including mindfulness teacher training, Voice Dialogue, teaching mindfulness masterclass, working with anxiety (body psychotherapy), mental health issues, safeguarding, resilience and NLP in coaching. I also have a particular interest in loneliness and social connection and spoke on the subject of loneliness at the 2015 Spirituality and Wellbeing Conference held at Derby University.
Mind For Wellbeing is based in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside of Swanbourne, about 15 minutes from Milton Keynes, Buckingham and Aylesbury and accessible also to those living in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire.
