Empowering you to live a happier healthier life!
- Mindfulness is the capacity to bring our awareness back to the present moment by focusing on the breath, the body or an object. It can also be called presence or awareness.
Most of us live up in our heads, disconnected from our bodies, living in the past or the future. From the moment we wake until the second our head hits the pillow, we find ourselves carried away by a noisy mind journey which keeps us totally in our heads and without realising that this is causing havoc with our emotional and physical well-being. Without mindful awareness our 'monkey mind' works on 'auto pilot' and we have no real control over the thoughts we have, the type of stories we tell ourselves and the experience we create because of it.
Mindfulness is the practice of slowing things down, becoming aware of what’s going on in any given moment, turning off the auto pilot and learning how to reconnect with the present moment. When we do this we begin to see that there is the persistent chatter in our minds and also a silent witness observing this story. As we practice more, we start to understand how our own mind operates, what messages our body is giving us, and how our current story affects and shapes our very reality and our biology.
It is a scientific fact that our thoughts directly shape our physical experience - a stressful thought creates a stress response in the body and an imagined or perceived stress is no different to a real one, the brain knows no different! So it’s no surprise why so many of us are experiencing chronic health problems, anxiety and discomfort - our thoughts are literally making us unwell flooding our body with fight or flight signals and chemicals much of the time.
Our thoughts arise from our deep held beliefs and perceptions, most of which are hidden in the subconscious realms of the mind – but we can learn to access them through mindfulness techniques and hypnosis too.
It's also a practice we take with us everywhere, not just something we do at one point in the day with special candles and nice smelling incense! Slowly and patiently with practice and intention we can regain control of our mental and physical health.
I reached out to Serap in March 2020 when a medical condition and the broader pandemic were causing me severe stress and anxiety. Immediately she took time to understand the specific problems and the underlying issues that were the root cause.
With this knowledge we then worked on key mindfulness practices – starting on the basics and building the disciplines that helped my mental well being. Serap was very structured and made sure I got into the habit of practicing these disciplines between sessions.
She was also great in asking about the issues that had arisen before we met every week.
This allowed her to be fully prepared and for us to focus quickly on the mindfulness exercises that would best help.
I would whole heartedly recommend Serap both for her insight and knowledge in the area of mindfulness, plus her passion and advocacy for the importance of mental health and self care in whatever you are currently facing.
- THE ‘FOUR WEEK INTENSIVE’ COACHING
In our one to one sessions, we work over the four weeks on introducing and familiarising you with the basic tools for mindfulness, through breath work and guided visualisation. The aim is to give you a solid foundation in the basic practices and tools so you can begin to understand what mindfulness really means to you, what works for you and how to incorporate it into your everyday life.
The four week intensive will give you all the tools you need to bring more awareness into your daily life, your work and relationships. A regular mindfulness practice will help you to cultivate more inner peace, emotional resilience, cope with challenges and stress more easily, and a deeper sense of clarity and calm. We are better equipped to cope with the ups and downs and our thoughts no longer control us.
ONE TO ONE COACHING SESSIONS
Whilst we begin with the foundations of mindfulness and basic practices that can be used to cultivate awareness, one to one sessions are tailored each week to look at your specific goals and what has come up during your practices as begin to deepen your experience. As a ‘by product’ of learning how to be present, we will inevitably begin to notice aspects of our self we perhaps hadn’t paid much attention to before, perhaps emotions or patterns of mind chatter that we can delve more deeply into. Learning how to be with the full spectrum of our experience, whether we class that as positive or negative is part of the mindfulness journey. Whilst working within a ‘mindfulness framework’, one to one sessions take on more of a fluid process and the tools we use in the sessions will reflect what you bring to the table each week to work with and how best these can serve you.
Mindfulness is like alchemy for the mind, body and soul and as Carl Jung said “When we use the mind in its conscious and creative capacity that’s when the magic really happens. . . Until the unconscious becomes conscious it will continue to direct our lives and we will call it fate”.
So if you want to really open the portal to your greatest version of you, let’s get conscious, let’s regain control of our monkey minds. Interrupt the auto pilot, strengthen your emotional resilience, discover inner peace, clarity and healing – these are just a few of the gifts accessible through presence.
MINDFULNESS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
As a certified youths well being and resilience coach, mindfulness practices are wonderfully accessible to both children and adults through a range of tools, creative visualisation and relaxation techniques. Practicing mindfulness improves our relationship with ourselves and to each other:- this can be particularly beneficial in family dynamics and help adults and children to express themselves in healthier ways, reframe their experiences and become more resilient and able to recognise and cope with difficult emotions and situations. Ultimately mindfulness supports a healthier happier lifestyle for everyone and for some, as a family this can be a chance to spend quality time and learn more about each other.
Mindfulness family sessions are ideal for anyone over the age of 7.
GROUP CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS
Throughout the year I also run one day workshops focusing on Mindfulness and Healing, as well as adults evening classes in person and on zoom.

All programmes are personalised and tailored to work specifically towards the outcomes and goals you have, whether that is stress relief, relaxation, work/relationships, spiritual development.
I recognise and understand that mindfulness or any other practice of self exploration can potentially be a trigger and cause potentially overwhelming responses or even be re-traumatising for individuals if not handled sensitively and appropriately. I adopt a trauma informed and trauma sensitive approach in my practice, working with the guidelines and modifications outlined in the four R's to ensure the emotional safety and mental well being of my clients.

I am so grateful for having come across Quantum Touch and Serap who together have alleviated so much suffering from my life. Serap is a grounded, warm, straightforward healer who you know will do the very best for you that she possibly can. It is this approach together with her clearly proficient healing skills which my mother warmed to when I took her to Serap for healings too which greatly helped her over a difficult period she was experiencing with her health. We have both worked with Serap in person and across distance and have found her distance healings to be as effective at providing relief as healing with her in person. She has been a blessing to both of our lives.
I attended a Reiki level I & II weekend course led by Serap and had a brilliant time. Serap is a great teacher and listener. She has a lot of experience and delivers her skills and knowledge with warmth, patience and humour. I am excited to delve into the world of Reiki and grateful for Serap's guidance and wisdom.
I did Reiki level 1-2 with Serap Enver and really enjoyed it over the weekend. Highly recommend her. I travelled all the way from SE London, she was most accommodating and caring and made the whole experience worthwhile for me. The group was small and intimate. I am really grateful for meeting new like minded people full of wisdom with open hearts. A truly great experience...
I have completed Reiki I, II and III with Serap. She has such a calming presence and is a brilliant teacher. I have thoroughly enjoyed my learning and couldn't recommend her more. Thank you Serap.
I was sceptical upon arriving for my Quantum Touch healing session. However, after the treatment any doubts I had before had disappeared. My mind and body were left feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and at peace. Thank you so much Serap.
Serap put me at my ease immediately with her soft and grounded presence, kind words and soothing voice. During the treatments I felt safe and held, as if in a healing bubble. My whole body relaxed and softened. Each session was enormously comforting and real emotional healing occurred as well as some easing of physical aches and pains. It is my opinion that Serap is a powerful Reilly healer and comes with my highest regard and recommendation.

Rest assured this is the real deal. A beautiful experience, safe, authentic and a responsible, caring approach and environment in which to learn and absorb
I cannot praise Serap highly enough. Pacing, delivery, passion for Reiki and healing and level of her knowledge are excellent. She has extensive knowledge on possible healing techniques that could be applied. It was great learning from Serap this weekend. I felt well looked after. She has lovely caring energy. The Manual she created for the course is brilliant . It is easy to use and very well structured. I am very happy I was guided to get my Reiki Master / Teacher Attunement from her.

I had a pleasure to attend a Mindfullness Workshop in Oct-17. It was an empowering experience and a very calming, insightful six -hours for me. Learnt a few useful techniques to keep perspective on everyday chaos and hurry- that are just our perception. La vie est belle. Thank you Serap for the inspiration.
So today I attended my first Mindfulness session with Serap Enver. It's quite difficult to describe the experience but I will try my best: Wow, brilliant and amazing! What an experience! Thank you Serap.
I immediately realised that Serap is a very special person: warm, kind, patient and most of all she exudes amazing positive energy ! I was recently really privileged to be shown the benefits of Reiki and trained by Serap. Not only did I come away from that brilliant weekend feeling wonderful, a long-term back problem seems to be resolved ! Serap has taught me to 'trust the process ...' and I would certainly recommend you do the same. Serap is a truly wonderful healer and Teacher.
I highly recommend Serap Enver, as she has really helped me both emotionally & physically, with her distant energy healing. I was suffering depression & sadness after several bereavements in my family. During our sessions over Skype, I could feel the warmth and tingling of her healing energy in my heart. Subsequently, I have felt so much better - thank you Serap. She also worked on my ears, which a few years ago had become rather sensitive to certain high frequency sounds. After a few QT/Reiki sessions with Serap, my ears are now able to cope much better with these kinds of difficult noises. Do contact her and try some distant healing sessions - she's a lovely, gentle & very caring person, as well as a really excellent & gifted healer.
