About Sally Davis &
Leap Mindfulness

My journey to becoming a Mindfulness & Meditation coach began in 2006. I was working as an actress and had launched my own children’s theatre and entertainment company. I was busy; I managed the team, attended events and ran the administration side of the business whilst also still going to auditions and trying to find stability within the acting world.  I was having fun, making money, learning lots and generally living a great life BUT  soon the cracks to started to show. I felt constantly under pressure and had no real support systems in place. Acting can be a tough industry and the instability of cash flow with difficult.

Although my business was doing well I started to burn out, my emotions became unpredictable, I had constant insomnia, my immune system was weak and I battled with my self-esteem. In 2008 I decided to make some changes. I enrolled on a 3 month personal development course (The Artists Way) that was challenging but life changing and I started to implement kindness, routine and gratitude into my everyday life alongside some gentle mindfulness practises. I found my health and mental well-being started to become more stable by making time for self-awareness and meditation.

In 2010 and 2014 my children came along and I found this hugely demanding. I was not prepared for the hard work involved with having a baby or the impact of sleep deprivation. I slipped into old habits which meant my health started to suffer so I became even more determined to implement my mindful way of living.  I read book after book, became obsessed with online material and went to a weekly meditation class. My eyes were opened again and my mind became alive at the possibilities that lay ahead. I became more grounded and better equipped to deal with whatever life threw at me.  I continued my practise and started to strive. I felt happier than ever before and I gained a greater understanding of who I was and how I was connected to myself and others.

In January 2017, I decided to take the next step and following some formal training and obtaining my SMART Diploma & then quickly trained in my Reiki Level Two.  I set up Leap Mindfulness and immediately was taken on as a Freelance Coach with Learning Performance, proving workshops within the education sector. There I received more training around Growth Mindset and Meta-Cogitation. From there Leap Mindfulness has continued to grow. My aim is to give people simple tools which they can use to enhance their body and mind connection and allow them to live a more fulfilled life with reduced stress and increased happiness. With the use of several tools I can offer a bespoke service to each client, allowing them to choose the tools that feel right for them. Having a background in performing arts also allows me to coach on public speaking, confidence and stage fright.

I am still currently working with Learning Performance. I runweekend retreats each year, working closely with with Yoga teacher Carolyn Thompson and with Denise Richardson of Holistic Happiness.  I lead meditation groups and one-2-one workshops as a meditation and mindfulness coach on a weekly basis.

I currently draw my inspirations from Shamanic practices, energy work and journeying meditations. Meditation, Mindfulness, Growth Mindset, Reiki, Intuitive Work, the Law of Attraction, Card Guidance and Journeying Meditation are my key areas of expertise. I love to follow Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Abraham Hicks, Jim Kwik Even Carmichael, Louise Hay and Mel Robbins to name a few.

Benefits of Mindfulness

The Science Bit

Every  thought  you have  forms a neural  connection in  your  brain and when you learn something new it connections with existing ones. The connection starts off weak but the more often you think of  something  the  stronger  the  connection  becomes. That is why when we repeat a thought pattern it becomes our reality, habit or belief. This is the same for both positive and negative thoughts.  As the saying goes “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, your right”.

 The good news is that it is possible to ‘rewire’ our brains and replace unhelpful thinking with better thoughts.  We can start this process by making space in our day to quiet the mind, acknowledge thought patterns and look at simple ways to re-wire and change those thoughts through meditation, affirmations and positive reinforcement. Even with only 10 minutes practise each day we can free ourselves of self-limiting beliefs and reduce stress. Mindfulness is suitable, and beneficial, for everyone, men, women, children & from all walks of life.

The benefits of mindfulness practice include:

Corporate Training Attendee

“We were thrilled with the impact the relaxation sessions had on our children at Brackenbury. We booked Sally to provide a mindfulness session for every year group, aged 4-11. All of the children were fully engaged and Sally tailored the sessions to the age of the children. The head teacher commented that lunch time on that day was calmer than she had ever seen.”
