About Sally

Hi, I’m Sally!

I’m an accredited Mindfulness trainer, based in Oxford and my mission is to help people to live healthier, happier lives through the simple but powerful practice of Mindfulness.

Sally Harris Mindfulness trainer

I’m passionate about Mindfulness because it worked for me! When a painful health condition coupled with a demanding role managing a mental health project left me stressed out, anxious and exhausted I enrolled on an eight-week Mindfulness course. Within weeks I started feeling more like myself; less stressed, less tense, less anxious.

I felt inspired and trained so I could share what I’d learnt with others. I completed my training in 2017 with Breathworks, specialising in Mindfulness-Based Pain Management and Mindfulness for Stress. Since then I’ve delivered workshops and courses in a variety of settings, including workplaces, colleges, local charities, and even at Denman College, the WI’s residential learning centre. I’ve also trained as a Natural Mindfulness Guide and have been listed with the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches since 2018.

Alongside teaching Mindfulness, I currently work part-time at Oxfordshire Mind, delivering training and supervision to volunteers and peer supporters. In my spare time I enjoy volunteering as a tutor at Oxfordshire Recovery College, where I co-produced a free Introduction to Mindfulness workshop for people accessing mental health services, professionals and carers.

“Sally was brilliant… I found her demeanour very soothing and reassuring.”

Gaby, November 2020

“Sally did a wonderful job of making everyone of the course feel at ease, and in creating a safe and supportive environment. She was a very calm and warm teacher, and really encouraged kindness to self throughout the course. Sally enabled a real sense of group connection despite the course being carried out remotely.”

Ruth, November 2020

“Sally was incredibly calm and sensitive to the group and presented everything in a really clear way. I felt safe in her hands to explore meditation more deeply without feeling self-conscious.”

Kate, April 2019

“Sally was a great communicator. I felt she created a very non-judgmental space, which immensely helped me relax and form a bond with the group and materials.”

Hannah, April 2019

“Sally obviously practices what she teaches as I felt immediately at ease due to her  calm and thoughtful approach and ability to engage a group that had never met  before in a series of helpful, practical and enjoyable mindful exercises.”
