Francine

I'm Francine, the creator of Press Pause. I discovered mindfulness in 2017 and have gradually worked towards becoming a qualified practitioner.  My degree in psychology and sociology has given me a great base to build upon. I have worked in a variety of environments over the years, including several years as a counsellor and advocate. The focus of all my personal and professional goals has always been to help people and enable them be the best they can be.


After discovering mindfulness, it has become an essential part of my every day and has truly helped me overcome many obstacles in life. I have several diplomas in mindfulness, meditation and life coaching. I plan to expand upon these to create an even wider knowledge for myself and to deliver more services to those who need it.


Mindfulness has allowed me to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of living in the moment. It has taught me better ways to manage my life and all the stresses that it can bring, to enjoy fully the beautiful moments.  I am so excited to be able to share with you the effect that mindfulness can have in your life.

Sarah

I am Sarah, the technical and admin support behind Press Pause. My daily Press Pause life keeps me busy with everything from website development to assisting with YouTube videos and all the way to the basics of proof reading the blog and social media posts.
My background for the last decade has been within the mobile industry, allowing me to see the amazing ways in which technology can bring us together and make bonds like never before. Alongside this I have a degree in Fashion and Design, along with my PTTLS and introduction to counselling. 
For me I discovered the vital importance of breathing techniques when I was applying for a promotion. I found the skills I learnt vital to keeping myself balanced and calm during a stressful time in my life. This mixed with my passion for communication and assisting people has brought me to where I am today. That place is where I can breathe and relax while admiring the beauty around me.
