Meet Katie Sheen

Katie specialises in helping you discover your unique path to a calmer, happier life by inspiring you with ideas, activities and meditations drawn from the huge breadth and depth of mindfulness.

Her relaxed, approachable teaching style encourages you to flourish in your own time, at your own pace, following the paths of mindful exploration that resonate most strongly with you as an individual.

Having used mindfulness to support herself through the ups and downs of life since 2001, she was incredibly grateful to have a strong mindfulness practice to help her cope with the physical pain and emotional trauma of cancer treatment in 2015, and it was this experience that inspired her to move into teaching mindfulness full time.

“One of the great rewards of both learning and teaching mindfulness is that one concept, activity or meditation can carry different levels of meaning and significance for each person within a group: so you can experience insights that are uniquely relevant to you, whilst also being reassured that you share a common humanity. 

This expanding awareness enables you to become kinder to yourself and to grow in self-confidence as you gradually discover new ways to respond to life, helping you to feel safer, more secure, and happier.”

Katie holds a Masters Degree in Education, a Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education, and is a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy. She is a Breathworks accredited mindfulness teacher and is also qualified to teach mindfulness courses in the Plum Village tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Originally teaching nutrition on Masters Degree and Diploma courses for University and College students, she was gradually invited to share her personal practice of mindfulness at the workplaces of some of the post-graduate students that she had the pleasure of working with, and now teaches mindfulness full-time.

Katie researches, writes and presents CPD accredited webinars and seminars across the UK that combine mindfulness and nutrition for health practitioners, on behalf of nutritional healthcare company Pharma Nord UK.

Through an expanding network of personal recommendations she has led bespoke workshops and webinars for corporate clients including Adidas, Barclays, Barclaycard, Deloitte, Equity Housing Group, Greater Manchester Police, Magnox and Sellafield, as well as charities and support groups including Brain Tumour Support, Heart Valve Voice, Parkinson’s Care and Support UK, and the COVID-19 Primary Care web meet for UK Healthcare Professionals. 

Katie has presented at conferences to a wide range of audiences, from the Northern Counties Society of Osteopaths to the Master Innholders General Managers, contributed interviews and articles to magazines and websites, and made guest appearances on podcasts and live radio.

At the heart of her teaching lies the regular mindfulness and meditation classes, courses and retreats for the general public, which she now offers both in person and on live Zoom calls in order to meet the global demand.

Katie also offers 1:1 mindfulness support to a limited number of individuals or small groups of family / friends who prefer a more confidential environment, compared to a group class. Please contact her directly to discuss your specific requirements: thank you.
