ABOUT ME

Hello, I’m Alexandra Dendy and welcome to my page… and thank you for taking the time to read a part of my story…

My passion for doing what I do today has come from an adventurous emotional journey which hasn’t been easy by any means. Yet today I can look back and consider it the biggest opportunity that life gave me.

I then began an enlightening journey of learning methods of self awareness, discovering myself, and acknowledging a deeper understanding of what was happening within me.

I cherish this journey everyday of my life, and I honestly believe that those around me appreciate it too.

The most important thing that I have learnt, is that I am no longer a victim of my reality, and everything I do is now a conscious choice with self care and love for myself and those around me.

Life isn’t about what happens to you, it’s about how you face it and we can learn to embrace everything around us with attentive awareness, from even the smallest difficulties that arise from day to day to larger turning points which may seem impossible to overcome at that moment.

I also feel fortunate enough to have learnt to use my growing professional skills on different levels; from Dance Therapist, Psychologist, Counselling, English Teacher and now Mindfulness Teacher both for adults and children, and last but not least, mother of two boys.

I have mastered taking every opportunity as a growing experience and come to the realisation that life is definitely full of surprises, emotional roller coasters, hurdles and what seem like mountains to climb, yet every one of the lessons can be lived with a detached awareness that brings depth, understanding, happiness and fulfilment.

and now… it has become my mission and passion is helping those who wish to embark on a similar journey…

Thank you for reading…

How do I enjoy spending my free time?

 

My favourites have to be spending time with my family and close friends, travelling, hiking in the mountains, watching films and reading but not forgetting ME time. I used to love more vigorous sports like running but now I prefer walking and cycling, but when I get the chance a mountain climb always feels good.

With Mindfulness embedded within me, I’m able to allow my experiences to last longer and live them deeply, enjoying every moment as it arises, with curiosity, openness and a touch of surprise with having no expectations of what’s round the corner.

I meditate every morning, as required for Mindfulness teachers, but I couldn’t think of any better way to start my day other than with a calm and peaceful mind…
