Jennie Lichfield SAC.Dip (MB-CBT), MPNLP
My name is Jennie Lichfield and I started my career in health and wellbeing 25 years ago as a complementary therapist in London. Fitting in my practice around the family demands and taking some time out to bring up the children.
I’ve been teaching health and wellbeing for over eleven years and currently teach a combination of mindfulness, tai chi and yoga. I specialise in mindfulness and its application for anxiety and depression, writing books and workshops on the subject. I teach Buddhism and it’s relationship to mindfulness therapeutic interventions to members of the community as well as within my role as a Buddhist chaplain in the prison service. I’m also a Master NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and a Mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, achieving significant breakthroughs with my clients, helping them to feel more vibrant, energetic and healthy.
I have steadily built up a reputation for excellence, integrity and achieving results. I now spend my time seeing individual clients, at group sessions or providing courses and workshops on meditation, Buddhism and wellbeing. Find out about Jennie’s Qualifications List. Read what my clients say.
Charlotte is a freelance writer and knitter, who jumped ship from ordinary office life after having her second child. She spends her days creating copy for people who can’t quite find the right words to say what they want to say, designing and knitting with super chunky wool, or teaching people the basics of her craft. She has a BA and MA in English literature and is a self taught crafter.

Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher
I have been working as a yoga teacher for 15 years and over the last few years I have been exploring mindfulness. As well as teaching yoga, I facilitate Jon Kabat Zinn’s stress reduction course. I also have a certificate in counselling which has helped me with this. I also am a hypnotherapist, and I am trained in Thai yoga massage
I’ll be very much involved in the retreats at Chilston Park Hotel.
Jenny was diagnosed with a chronic illness and in an effort to stem the effects she had exhausted conventional medicine, she turned to yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Taking greater control of her medical challenges Jenny also discovered a new source of personal power that she has tried to utilise in her everyday life.
She combines her efforts to discover a better balance in mind and body with all of the usual hectic challenges that accompany running a large family household, balancing her career as a company director in a city based management consultancy and property firm as well as continuing to manage her ongoing health challenges.
Jenny has been local to Kent all her life. She enjoys walking, reading, holidays with her family and husband and of course practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Jenny’s passion is to help others practice mindfulness and meditation to improve their daily lives.
For years Tony felt sure that there was something more than just plain existence. During his son’s life threatening illness and subsequent return to health, Tony sought comfort from his suffering and found a small local Buddhist group which offered him some insights into the meaning of these challenging life events.
Tony enrolled on Liberty Wellbeing’s mindfulness course for beginners which heightened his understanding further and he was finally able to find some peace.
Continuing to study mindfulness, in groups, his own personal practice and via silent retreats, Tony has made a commitment to his Buddhist practice and to lead a life of service and compassion.
I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years. I came to yoga from a non-sporty background and started out not being able to touch my toes, that’s why I believe yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, body shape or fitness.
My growing love of yoga put me on the path to teach and I trained with Sally Parkes Yoga in London specialist in vinyasa flow and hatha yoga and qualified as a yoga alliance associate teacher.
Having had the benefit of learning from some excellent teachers past and present, my influence in my practice and classes are broad ranging. I aim to make my classes relaxing, energising and fun.
I have been dedicated to my own personal practice yoga for more than ten years and teaching for nearly six. Having completed teacher training programmes (including pre and postnatal yoga) with both The British School of Yoga and The Victor Foundation, I continue to do regular trainings and workshops.
I teach all ages (from newborns to grown ups!) and all levels from those with chronic illness to intermediate/advanced.
Yoga is my passion, my lifestyle, the part of my nature that I want to share with everyone I meet. I am constantly learning from my teachers and my own practice and this is borne out in my teaching style.
I’m Jennie’s PA helping her organise all the events, courses and workshops. You’ll be most likely to hear from me online as I respond to emails and booking enquiries.
