Huge thanks to the wonderfully smiley Jo Howarth who runs The Happiness Club for interviewing me recently: you may recognise her name if you have her children’s mindfulness book ‘Glad to be Dan.’ Here are all the episodes for you to enjoy… Part 1: What inspired me to teach Mindfulness? What do I love most…

I knew from before my treatment began that there would be scars, both emotional and physical. To be honest, they initially seemed like the least of my problems when it came to surviving or not, compared to the long list of other potential side effects from both the treatment and the cancer itself. However as…
I’m not a naturally patient person. That means it isn’t easy being a patient. I’m not the type who often lies around on sofas, looking out of the window. I like to get things done, and resting when I am tired never used to feel like “doing” anything. This also means that my natural response…

Katie’s mindful approaches to nutrition day for practitioners was a really valuable asset to add to my toolbox as a therapist. I often refer back to her principles of mindful eating, both for myself in my daily practice of mindfulness and gratitude as well as for my clients. What I really love about this course is it is reminds us to really think about our relationship with food and the joy of food, which can often be distorted by the media and current food trends.
Katie Sheen is a highly gifted lecturer and speaker and brings clarity and vitality to any topic that she talks about. She has a rare ability to take apart complex concepts and strip them back to their basic component parts and re-present them in a much easier-to- grasp way. In addition to bringing clarity and understanding for her audience, she has a delightful personal presentational style, which brings lightness, humour and humanity to what could otherwise sometimes be dry or difficult mat…
I would recommend this online course to anyone trying to deal with anxiety. The explanations are excellent at helping me to understand the meaning of mindfulness and ultimately, how it can positively affect my everyday life. Thank you Katie for making such a good course! Well worth watching!
Katie is a very lovely, calm person to be around so the atmosphere in her sessions is peaceful and relaxing. She is very approachable and has good interpersonal skills. She is very empathetic and wise, and her suggestions are so relevant to every day life.
Katie took time to understand the exact nature of our work and hence the challenges that our team face on a daily basis. She then wrote and delivered an inspiring mindfulness workshop that provided practical strategies for each of the specific areas that we had identified, all of which could easily be incorporated into every day life.
Katie is an inspirational speaker who positively engages her audience. Her friendly and approachable character makes listening and learning a pleasure. Undoubtedly a lady with incredible talent and enthusiasm for her subject.
Just wanted to say that Mum and I are very glad to have attended your Mindfulness event at Amaranth last week. We took so many important and positive message away with us and found your class very inspiring. I particularly liked the idea of “Watering the seeds of happiness” and loved the idea that the sky is always blue, even when all we can see are clouds. We both wish to thank you xx
I was so welcomed on my first visit to your lunchtime meditation class in Cheadle Hulme – and you explained everything so well – that my nerves disappeared and I really understood and enjoyed the meditations. The session was so calming and all the people so lovely that I can’t wait until next week! Thank you Katie.
I have found your teaching to be a great source of both inspiration and guidance. I like the rigorous and comprehensive approach you have, challenging us to think but also demonstrating your expertise in a practical and functional way, combined with a strong scientific foundation. I also like some of your more personal and spiritual comments. Thank you.
After a hideous crash diet in my late teens and a 5st weight loss in just 6 months, a decade of disordered eating followed. Painful cycles of bingeing and deprivation and a complete disconnect from enjoying food plagued me on an almost hourly basis. Food was forever on my mind. I can’t remember the exact light bulb moment during Katie’s teaching but I was nodding uncontrollably throughout. I left, totally and utterly renewed. I am now in my fourth year of being grateful for nearly every mout…
