Britta Schuessler

My name is Britta Schuessler. I have lived in Scotland for 25 years. I am passionate about wellbeing physically and psychologically. I have been a psychotherapist since 2003 and worked as a life coach since 2010. When I first came to Scotland in 1993 for a one year exchange as a student I learned about mindfulness and I have practiced it ever since. I have taught mindfulness in groups since 2015. Mindfulness has been very important in my life. It helped me through some very difficult times including a relationship breakup, isolation and chronic illness. It has also been one of the most important things I learned that helped me to live my life fully, enjoy myself and feel resilient, no matter what life is throwing at me. Mindfulness has enriched my experience of life, strengthened my emotional core and has made my relationships so much more effective. At present I am training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach to become an internationally certified and accredited Mindfulness teacher.

About this course

Welcome to Mindfulness: Discover the Magic of Life! 

I am delighted that you are having a look at this course. I am running this course for you, because I want to give something useful to the community I live in. Whether you are struggling because of the pandemic or life is okay for you, now is a great time to learn how to be mindful. Mindfulness is a fantastic tool to help you with anxiety, depression and feeling more in control of your mind. However, it is also a great way to enhance our feelings of joy and wellbeing. Mindfulness can give you the resilience you need to face the uncertainties of our time.

If you want to find out what Mindfulness is and enjoy your life more, this is for you. Mindfulness can not be learned easily from a book. It is something you learn in an experimental way. In a group, with an experienced teacher you get the feedback you need to know that what you are doing is right.

If you are struggling with the health fears this course will help you to feel more calm. Research has shown that Mindfulness can reduce anxiety dramatically.

If you feel depressed, because of the ongoing isolation and the uncertainty of the situation this course will be helpful. Because you will meet likeminded people with similar experiences to yours. This in itself often helps to feel not quite so low. But more importantly Mindfulness has shown to be effective in helping people lifting their mood and enjoying their life more.

If you spend a lot of time ruminating and worrying about the future Mindfulness can help you to learn how to step out of the loop of obsessive thinking and frees your mind to engage with the more nourishing aspects of life. It helps you to train your mind.
