Mindfulness Coaching – Self-Kindness Skills – Meditation Practices

Hey there, I’m Sheila Bayliss – a Mindful Living coach based in South Manchester, UK (Heaton Moor in Stockport, to be precise). I provide support for people wishing to reduce stress or improve wellbeing, via workshops and 1-to-1 sessions.

Using approaches rooted in coaching, mindfulness and self-kindness, I help people learn how to respond more positively to the challenges of being human.  I really believe that you don’t need to remove all your difficulties to find more ease and confidence, that it is possible to thrive even when things get bumpy.  We can learn to see life differently, and discover a new freedom that we didn’t previously know was possible.

“I have been going to Sheila’s classes for around a year and have found her inspirational.”

This life is an ongoing growth journey, and my commitment is to sharing tools and practices that support positive change.  I don’t share from a place of being perfect, but from being human myself, and having learned the hard way plenty of times myself!

I’m a qualified coach, and also a trained mindfulness teacher.  In my classes and workshops I have taught hundreds of people to use mindfulness and self-kindness to improve their wellbeing.  I’ve been relying on these skills in my personal practice for over 10 years, and I don’t know where I’d be without them.

My monthly tips have been described as “the most useful thing I’ve read all year”, and a prompt to “make me stop, pause and reflect on life and appreciate things”.

Here’s an overview of the various ways I share tools and ideas.
