Belinda Gammon MBACP, Lowland Walks Leader (MTA member) and Mindfulness Teacher, Voice Coach. My passion is about providing a space for others that supports their coming home to their Self.
I do this through individual psychotherapeutic counselling sessions, mindfulness courses, mindful walks/mindful voice walks and Womens’ outdoor development days.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) and my approach is integrative, with a focus on mindfulness/mindful compassion; transactional analysis; mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT); attachment theory among others.
I trained to teach Mindfulness with the Bangor Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice (CMRP): my training is ongoing. I am also a practising Buddhist and Mitra with the Triratna Buddhist organisation.
My walking habit started as a youngster and really gained traction as a way to recovery after experiencing trauma. I love to take my meditation and self-care practice outdoors and see this as something of great therapeutic value to offer clients and walk & meditation participants. I gained my Lowland Leader award with the Mountain Training Association and am working towards the Hill & Moorland Leader award.
Development of Self is, to me, intertwined with development of our Voice and vice-versa. A classically trained singer with the Royal Academy of Music, my experience of working as a therapist eventually became integrated into my vocal approach. I now integrate body awareness and exploration into sound and voice on Mindful Voice Walks.
