Hello, I’m Elspeth

about me

I am an accredited mindfulness coach based in Edinburgh, dedicated to helping individuals develop a greater sense of well-being and inner peace through mindfulness practices.

I’m Elspeth Lewis, Mindfulness and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) coach, founder of Pause to Be, author of Smooth Sailing with Your Teen, and co-author of Mindfulness for Challenging Times; and Mindfulness for Transformation. I’m passionate about sharing stress reduction techniques with others, through guided meditation and mindfulness courses.

I trained to teach mindfulness with Shamash Alidina, leading mindfulness and kindfulness teacher, co-founder of The Museum of Happiness in London, and mindfulness author. Shamash trained with Jon Kabat-Zinn, one of the masters of mindfulness and founder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme.

More recently, in 2020, I trained to share ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) which is a mindfulness-based training, aimed at increasing our psychological flexibility in order to boost resilience and mental wellbeing. In 2021, I undertook further training in ACT for Adolescents with Dr Russ Harris; and also in DNA-v: The Youth Model of Acceptance, Mindfulness, and Positive Psychology, with Dr Louise Hayes and Dr Joseph Ciarrochi.

I am a certified and insured Mindfulness and Acceptance Coach, accredited by the Complementary Medical Association. I have a daily formal mindfulness practice and I am committed to living mindfully. I attend mindfulness retreats and have ongoing contact with other mindfulness teachers. I also have PVG scheme membership.

My most treasured award, however, has got to be my Brownie Mindfulness Badge, which was presented to me by a local Brownie Guide Unit, when I supported them towards achieving their mindfulness badges!
