Sophie Jane Miller

Mindfulness Teacher

Sophie trained at the University of Oxford’s Mindfulness Centre (Department of Psychiatry) where she studied for a Master of Studies degree in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Sophie is also an employed barrister.

She became engaged with mindfulness after being taught how to handle a stress-related breakdown at the Priory Hospital, Roehampton, following thyroid gland failure in 2012. She now uses this simple way of living as daily practice to assist with appreciating and riding the ups and downs of everyday life. The same stresses surround her but using mindfulness she has a new way to “be with” these stresses so they don’t affect her mental health

It isn’t necessary to be ill to benefit from living mindfully, and in fact living in the present moment is useful to many, including carers who are constantly faced with stressful circumstances in their lives. Children find mindfulness particularly easy to relate to, and mindful parenting is a well-known resource for communication with children and being open to their experiences in a non-judgmental way.

Sophie is a part of the working group on Mindfulness in the Workplace, which is following a recommendation of the Mindful Nation UK report* by the All-Party Parliamentary Group published in October 2015. The group published their Business Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace in October 2016.

In addition to individual work, Sophie offers sessions for family members and groups wishing to learn mindfulness together.
