I had some major relationship decisions to make and was spending hours ruminating & flipping between different decisions. I already had considerable knowledge of mindfulness & was using Headspace, but working 1:1 with Andrea has been invaluable. Couldn’t recommend BGL 1:1 enough! It’s helped me to shift into the present moment when triggered by difficult thoughts…


The full story:

I had some major decisions to make in terms of my relationship and found myself spending hours ruminating about and flipping between different decisions.

I’ve completed an 8 week mindfulness course before and also regularly use apps like headspace etc.

Where Andrea’s work is different is her ability to apply it directly to day to day situations and has enabled me to make major shifts in how I am applying it to my life and I am seeing huge benefits from doing so.

Andrea’s approach has been invaluable in terms of helping me to apply it to areas in which I have felt stuck.

Andrea is hugely knowledgeable, warm and approachable, and able to bring humour to the work. She immediately put me at ease when talking about difficult issues. She uses open curiosity to help bring clarity even when I wasn’t sure what question it was I was trying to answer.

BGL 1:1 has really helped me to shift into the present moment when triggered by difficult thoughts and to sit with uncertainty rather than get into a battle in my head.

This allows me to enjoy the day to day more and trust that in time greater clarity will come naturally without me having to mull it over constantly.

And helped me realise that the rumination was actually making any decisions harder.

Whilst not the direct focus working with, Andrea has also helped me think through common triggers that come up for me in parenting and increased my ability to be present and engaged with my children when these arise.

The course materials are great and well organised. Just thank you, this work was just what I needed at a difficult time. BGL is hugely practical and helps you to think about applying the practices throughout your day.

Couldn’t recommend BGL 1:1 enough!
