Rachel's background

Rachel is an experienced Primary School Teacher, having noticed the negative impact that the rise in stress and anxiety was having on herself, her work colleagues and even more alarmingly, the children in her care, decided to set up ‘Rachel McKenna Mindfulness’ (formerly ‘Rachel Ashcroft Mindfulness’), a company which works to teach methods of stress relief, boost confidence and build resilience.

Rachel is also a qualified hypnotherapist and can help people, by using hypnosis to treat conditions or change habits by creating a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility.

As a fully accredited teacher of Mindfulness and Meditation and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), with extensive training in the field of well-being and stress management, Rachel works with children and adults one to one, runs group workshops and training and supports children within schools to help them see the world in colour again when at times, things can seem very grey.

Rachel strongly believes that in-order-to help children effectively, we as adults must first look at ourselves and understand how to best manage our own anxiety and stress levels. How can we help children if we can’t help ourselves?

Rachel delivers the Mindfulness Now Teacher Training Programme, teaches mindfulness for well-being to children and adults of all ages and backgrounds and also runs training sessions within the workplace and online.

Mindfulness teaches us how to become more aware, how to acknowledge how we feel, understand why and choose the best method to deal with it at that moment, helping us to feel happier and healthier.
