Mindful living, freedom from stress


Hey there, I’m Sheila Bayliss – a Mindful Living coach with a deep commitment to helping people discover new possibilities in life. Over the years I’ve taught mindfulness and self-kindness to hundreds of people. Currently I provide 1-to-1 support via my online Mindfulness Coaching Programme.

“I have been going to Sheila’s classes for around a year and have found her inspirational. She has helped me change the way I think… I am much calmer now”.

Resources for Mindful Living:

I share a variety of resources on this site. My mindfulness 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”. My blogs have been shared widely, and I’m deeply moved when I receive comments and emails from people who have found my writing helpful.

I post Mindfulness Tips , Blogs about Self-Kindness and Mindful Living blogs. If you want to be notified when I add new content, you can ‘follow’ the blog and you’ll get an email whenever I post new tips and blogs (to follow, click the small button at the bottom right of the screen).

I share recordings of Meditations For Home Practice, including self-kindness, body awareness and mindfulness with breathing. It can be easier to build your own practice when you have something to listen to.

If you want to work with me, you can also get information about my online 1-to-1 sessions at the Mindfulness Coaching page.

For additional resources, see my posts on Twitter (you can view this content even if you don’t have an account).

I also write in a few other places. You can find a few of my in-depth pieces at Everyday Mindfulness.

If you’re interested in re-connecting with the earth, I blog about my personal journey towards more sustainable living at greenerlivingnow.

Who Am I?

If you’re wondering about my own grounding in these practices, here’s a little bit about me and the benefits of what I share.

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’m a qualified coach, and also a trained mindfulness teacher. During a number of years of teaching classes and workshops, I have worked with groups of all sizes, sharing how to use mindfulness and self-kindness to improve wellbeing. I’ve been relying on these skills in my personal practice for over 11 years, and I don’t know where I’d be without them.

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, and still learning all the time myself. I’m often told that my openness and ‘realness’ is what my clients appreciate most about my coaching style.

Personally, since I discovered the practices of mindfulness and self-kindness, I’ve recovered from struggles with anxiety, perfectionism, and the depleting pursuit of achievement. These days I’m more interested in how a happy and mindful life can be one of ‘just enough‘. I’m also passionate about building emotional confidence, and the freedom we can discover beyond the conditioning that keeps us trapped in limiting patterns. I say a bit more about this in the Mindful Living page.

You can find out more about my personal journey, my qualifications, and my approach at the About page.

I hope you enjoy exploring these offerings. With much kindness,
