"Pain is inevitable, Suffering is optional." - Buddha
Are you ready to learn to re-balance your life?
Are you ready to deal with old and outdated emotions and patterns and put them where they belong - in the past?
Are you ready to unstick and unblock yourself?
Are you ready to improve your emotional and physical health?
Are you ready to stop holding yourself back from being all that you can be?
If you are ready to say YES... then Jacqui will help you to understand who you are, how you are blocked and move beyond and become who you really are. Reach out today.
Pain, whether physical or emotional is part of the experience of life, there is no avoiding it.
Suffering this pain, however, is a choice.
What I mean here is the non-acceptance that at this moment they are experiencing something unpleasant. They try to push away, ignore or deny the discomfort and it is this aversion that causes suffering and it is this suffering that, through practices of Mindfulness and Compassion they can learn to change.
"Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves, slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future, live the actual moment. Only this moment is life."
- Thich Nhat Hanh
When we wait or hope with fingers crossed for something or someone outside of ourselves and our control to change before we become happy then we will always be unhappy....and always waiting.....
By realizing that our happiness and peace of mind comes from within and thereby changing our outlook and letting go of the need to change things that we cannot change then we take the control of our own lives.
Jacqui provides a confidential and safe environment in which her clients can explore their difficulties, increase their self-awareness and come to understand how certain feelings, behavior and beliefs might be preventing them from leading a fulfilling, stimulating and rewarding life.
No matter what your issue, she works with YOU as an individual, looking at the issue, problem or diagnosis as a symptom rather than it as a label of who you are.
She works with individuals, couples and groups, adults and young people on most issues including relationship counselling via in Carmarthenshire & Swansea - whether you are in a relationship, want to get into or out of a relationship or whether you struggle with everyday work/family relationships, learning to relate firstly to yourself and then to another in a mindful and compassionate way will create loving and long-lasting relationships.
Whilst Jacqui's style is relational and client-led, focusing on the goals and desires of the client and working at their pace, she has still been described as inspiring and dynamic, inspiring the client to challenge their old patterns and belief systems and reach for goals they previously thought impossible.

Mindfulness is the art of not getting attached to the stories we tell ourselves. Not in a way that avoids the pain but in a way that simply observes and allows ALL experiences, positive and negative, to simply be there. When we instinctively detach from our unwanted experiences we create resistance. Suffering = Pain x Resistance. Pain, both emotional and physical is an inevitable part of human existence, but the suffering of that pain is a choice.
By learning Mindfulness as a way of living, you learn to live fully in the present moment and thereby experience life fully. This builds resilience so that when life throws a curveball you feel stronger and more able to handle it.
