About Chris Joseph

Dr Chris Joseph

Chris is a very experienced and fully qualified Mindfulness Trainer and NLP Practitioner. He runs his own mindfulness training and coaching company based in Caerphilly, South Wales, and has been featured on national radio.

He originally discovered the benefits of mindfulness meditation in 2007 and attended an eight week Breathworks Cardiff mindfulness course in February 2008. So inspired was he by the quality of the course and the positive effect that it had on his life, that he decided to become a qualified trainer himself. He has since completed the Breathworks training programme, becoming fully accredited in July 2010.

Chris completed his NLP Practitioner qualification in September 2009 with Dr Richard Bandler, the co-founder of NLP, and John LaValle. He has since undertaken further coaching training with Anthony Robbins in the USA and Richard Waterman in the UK.

Prior to becoming a mindfulness trainer Chris was a lecturer and academic researcher at Cardiff University, and he holds a PhD in Civil Engineering._DSC0021a_nochair_w400

Chris has had a regular meditation practice since 2007, and enjoys taking the opportunity to further his own practice by attending various courses and meditation retreats. He considers the development of his own mindfulness practice to be essential in being able to teach mindfulness from a position of experience and integrity. In the last 4 years alone he has attended 4 intensive 9-day meditation retreats, several weekend meditation and yoga retreats, 3 mindfulness conferences, and a 2-day training course on the MBSR ‘enquiry method’ with Eluned Gold from the Bangor centre for mindfulness research and practice.

He teaches mindfulness courses in Cardiff, and trains companies in how to integrate mindfulness into their workplace, both for the well-being of their staff and the development of authentic leadership from their management.

He also coaches on a private basis using his own signature approach. This combines the power of present moment self awareness through mindfulness, and the transformative power of coaching, both in business and in life. His clients are often already high achieving individuals who are seeking a different, smoother way of living.

Chris lives with his wife and two young children in Caerphilly, South Wales. He is a Welsh speaker and enjoys reading, running, and playing with his children.

Chris is an excellent mindfulness trainer. His teaching, which is borne out of life experience, has a delightful quality of being clear and accessible whilst being delivered with warmth and humour. He is a gifted communicator with a calm and reassuring presence who has helped many people through his work.

More Information…

Breathworks has given me a chance to put into practice, discuss and report back on methods that have helped me feel calmer and cope with anxiety. The routine of the programme has pushed me into practicing these methods regularly which will all round be beneficial to me. The material was explained well and methods were recalled on throughout the weeks. Individuals were given time and chance to speak without feeling pushed and Chris made it a comfortable environment in which to practice in… A successful course! Thank you.
