Owner and principal practitioner is Maurice Harvey-Hall. Maurice is a Mindfulness Practitioner and practising Mental Health Nurse with a Masters in Mental Health Nursing and certificates in various psychotherapies. Maurice has studied Eastern philosophy, in particular Buddhism and Taoism, and has integrated these principles into western psychological therapies. Maurice has a passion for mindfulness based therapies and is an experienced teacher in this field.
Maurice is also an avid triathlete who uses mindfulness in his training and racing. He has incorporated the Acceptance & Commitment Therapy ( ACT) model into his daily practice.
ACT encourages people "to live a rich and meaningful life, while experiencing the pain that comes with it".
The ACT model of living allows people to experience discomfort that arises from the change process, whilst moving in a direction guided by values that are significant to us.
The aim of our sessions is to identify the "phenomena" that stops us from achieving what we want, and change the relationship we have with it.
eg: "use pain in service of your goals"
A reflection from one of our participants who attended our retreat in 2018.
Being the first retreat that I have signed up for, I wasn’t really too sure what to expect. I had recently completed Maurice’s four week Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation and was keen to learn more. I went into the retreat with an open, curious mind with a readiness to experience new things. I explored parts of mind I didn’t know were there. I pushed and challenged the relationship I have with myself and learnt a whole lot about myself I didn’t know existed. I love Maurice’s style of combining science and spirit in his teachings in setting that allows for people to explore at their own comfort level. I would HIGHLY recommend this retreat or any opportunity to work with Maurice. He is a true gem.
