We're delighted to offer this timely new program.
Mindfulness can be a deeply transformative practice with the potential to help us live more regeneratively. Learn  life changing skills to help bring more balance into your life. What’s draining can become life-giving. Explore mindfulness as a pathway to deep rest and recovery and regeneration.
Mindfulness is a vital component of recovery and prevention for burnout and fatigue, stress and exhaustion
This innovative 4 week program focuses on helping you find ways that work for you to bringing balance,  support and genuine self-care into your life. You will learn to:
  • Recognise patterns and behaviours that are needlessly putting your brain on high alert and do them less
  • Use mindfulness to interrupt stress, anxiety and negative spiralling
  • Create space to respond more mindfully
  • Meet your needs in a way that's sustainable
  • Use practical ways to improve self-regulation (your ability to understand and manage your behaviour and reactions to feelings and experiences)
  • Disconnect from patterns and triggers that harm you
  • Build increased trust and connection with yourself, honour your own needs and choices, whilst connecting with what is meaningful for you


Megan Layton is the Director of Simply Mindful, a senior MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) teacher, yoga teacher, self-compassion teacher and Positive Neuroplasticity teacher and also a Mental Health Social Worker with more than 25 years experience.
Megan encountered mindfulness during a period of intense challenge in her life, when she was facing burnout and family crisis. She has supported loved ones through long-COVID and post-viral fatigue. Through these experiences she developed a deeper understanding of the challenges and dived deep into the research and treatment approaches. She has explored and tested on herself  (and willing others) countless ways of dealing with disrupted sleep and fatigue.
Megan has also spent more than 15 years working intensely with trauma in cross-cultural and torture trauma rehabilitation settings and 6 years in a research setting with vulnerable families and children. She is a brain science enthusiast and is continuously deepening her understanding both of mindfulness and of mental health approaches. She loves bringing the two together and is passionate about helping people to grow, learn and thrive and adapt both mindfulness and mental health approaches to meet their unique needs. She also knows well the challenges of being human and has personally experienced time and again, the freedom, healing and joy that can come from mindfulness practice. She sees mindfulness as a practice of ‘deep warm friendship to yourself’ (Bob Sharples).
