Carmel Jean Seymour
Carmel attended her first MBSR course in 2007 on the recommendation of a friend. The course revealed to her how negatively stress was impacting her life and relationships. For Carmel, establishing and sustaining a mindfulness practice had a transformative effect, especially in parenting her two young children, turning it into a more joyous experience.
A year of living in the Blue Mountains in 2009 was a time for deepening her meditation practice and a growing desire to share what she had learnt with others. Carmel completed her first level of MBSR teacher training and now leads Simply Mindful meditation practice groups for experienced meditators. The journey continues!
Carmel is a psychologist of 12 years experience, currently in private practice, with a particular focus on working with families and children with special needs. Her regular meditation practice and attention to living mindfully enriches both the personal and professional sides of her life.
