about the teacher

Louis is a mindfulness practitioner, meditation teacher, psychology grad and founding Director of The Wellbeing Campus. With over ten years meditation experience and eight years of teaching mindfulness, Louis combines his passion for mental health with his love of mindfulness, positive psychology and neuroscience to help individuals and groups build healthy habits that have lasting changes. 

 

Louis took on the biggest challenge of his life six years ago when he unexpectedly became a full time carer to his two nephews. His training in mindfulness and passion for holistic health is a testament to his ability to ‘hold it together’ while managing the daily challenges of caring for children with trauma-related issues alongside running a business and managing a long-term autoimmune condition. 

 

Louis worked for several years in NHS and community sector mental health services, observing first-hand some of the limitations to an overly medicalised approach to mental health. Having worked alongside many psychologists and other skilled mental health practitioners, Louis considers mindfulness and compassion training to be fundamental in creating lasting changes in ones life.

 

As scientific evidence of the therapeutic benefits of meditation and yoga continues to grow, Louis seeks to further embed these ancient practices into his local community of Wirral and beyond. 

 

His one-to-one work with clients is rooted in person-created, evidence-based practice, the type researchers have found can facilitate structural and functional changes the regions of the brain associated with stress management, emotional intelligence & resilience, compassion, learning & memory, and positive emotion.

 

Louis makes a consistent effort to keep up-to-date with current research and best practice guidelines, holding compassion and professionalism to high esteem. Each year he attends a 10-day silent meditation retreat, comprising over 100-hours of practice, and continues to build on his experiential understanding of mindfulness to help others embed this transformative practice into their daily lives. 

TESTIMONIALS

"Mindfulness has transformed my daily life. Initially skeptical, I now realize the power of dedicating time to reflect. The course has enabled me to acknowledge and respond to my emotions, leading to a more calm and content mindset. Even on busy days, I find myself responding differently, embracing the healing time I need."

Brooke

"Louis introduced new mindfulness techniques that significantly impacted my life, especially during a challenging time with chemo. Despite juggling parenting and treatment, the benefits, including improved sleep and being 'present,' were evident. The remote sessions were essential, fostering connections with others facing similar struggles. Louis' guidance, coupled with the provided resources, made the course a valuable experience."

"The mindfulness course was a valuable part of my cancer journey. Louis's coaching and the interactive online format allowed for shared experiences.
