My name is Sarah O'Flaherty, and I'm the founder of Mindfulness Meditation & More. Welcome! On this site you'll find advice, support and great tools that are designed to help you find balance, peace and contentment.

Unlike most counsellors, coaches or trainers who are inspiring change, I aim to keep things simple, providing practical advice that is easily implemented, and utilising unique proven tools including mindfulness and meditation.  I specialise in anxiety, stress and depression. 

I recently authored a book called Finding Your Bliss, and due to popular demand, am currently writing a follow-up. 

General contact: For more information email me at sarah@sarahoflaherty.com or call me on +61 474 819 235. I can work with you wherever you are in the world by Skype. And locally, I'm based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia.

In the same way that you are not your mind or your thoughts, you are also not your emotions. The key to managing our emotions is becoming aware of them, noticing them as soon as they arise.
