THE YELLOW BOOK
The Yellow Book is the creative, wellbeing resource published by rethinkyourmind. Originally, back in 2012, The Yellow Book was created by those with experience of mental health challenges and has consistently been endorsed by professionals to create a unique, beautiful and uplifting book that hopes to support, inspire and signpost.
The Yellow Book includes:
Wellbeing material from The Centre of Wellbeing – simple practices and ideas to build healthy habits and self-regulation tools
Recovery material from The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience; The Royal College of Psychiatrists & NHS
Signposting to National organisations and charities of support
50 pages of positive artwork from the project
Forewords from notable public figures, including Professor Lord Patel of Bradford OBE
A page from each member of the assessor panel
There is also The Audio Yellow Book which provides a downloadable resource featuring project music, Mindful meds, and The Centre of Wellbeing section spoken.
doTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS
doTERRA essential oils are certified therapeutic grade which means they are potent enough to maintain their properties. This means that they can be used effectively to ease both physical ailments and support emotionally.
SALT LAMPS & PALM STONES
Palm stones and salt lamps are incredibly cleansing and grounding tools. The salt lamps we sell are specially designed so that you can add essential oils to the flattened top and, as the lamp warms up, the aromas rise. Palm stones are both comforting and balancing and, in our experience, those living with anxiety, have found them to be supportive.
SolRox™ is a naturally derived crystal made by ancient oceans 250 million years ago; a crystal version of the sea containing the molecular matrix of all complex carbon-based life forms on our planet. In this crystal form, the molecular plasma of the ocean rebalances the mineral equilibrium of your body on contact with the skin, helping to heal muscle and bone damage, reduce tension and stress, improve circulation, increase energy levels, and improve balance, mobility, and body temperature regulation.

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Mindful Living Advocate?
I trained in Mindfulness for my own personal practice following my marriage separation in 2010. Despite it being an amicable separation, I experienced grief from the loss of identity and planned future, which was unexpected on my part, leaving me feeling disconnected. I felt unable to communicate this to my family and friends until I joined a meditation class, it just made so much sense and felt so natural that I developed it into a way of living and ultimately into a career!
‘The Centre of Wellbeing’ was launched in 2014 to empower access routes to mindful living and wellbeing, and since lockdown 2020, we have continued to build a hub from my home.
Who are your clients?
I work with people just like you who are seeking more fulfillment, happiness & peace…people who are open to doing things differently, ready to embrace change, and take responsibility for their wellbeing. There are no expectations simply a journey back to your inner mindful self!
What results can I expect?
You’ll feel better, your energy will rise, and you’ll have tools in your wellbeing toolkit!
Better awareness of how you feel and an understanding on how to manage it
Feel empowered and more at peace with the future
Re-membering who you are
Develop more compassion for yourself and others
Being conscious in your communication
Connect with your whole self
Raising your emotional awareness
Write a new story
You are your centre of wellbeing – and when you come to know this, your whole reality changes
In addition to Mindful Living – do you offer any other services?
Yes, I recently qualified in EMDR which is Eye movement Desensitization reprocessing which is a trauma therapy - I am currently looking for case studies.
What else do you have in the pipeline?
I am always looking for new ways to expand and develop myself and currently, I am collaborating with other wonderful practitioners to bring to the community a varied program of Sacred Sound Immersions, Yoga and Sound workshops, Wellbeing Taster events, Song Spirals and all manner of uplifting practices that will help us all stay well – keep an eye on WHAT’S ON.
