Hi, and welcome to Mindfulness Based Living

I'm Cheryl Gooch, based in Switzerland where I teach compassion-based mindfulness to individuals and groups in business; coach individuals as an Integral Coach for development and support organisations as an HSE Consultant.

I completed my teacher training through the Mindfulness Association (UK), my MSc, Studies in Mindfulness (University of Aberdeen), gave me the opportunity to research mindfulness and HSE professionals. I bring mindfulness into the workplace and I find this very rewarding as its a practical tool for managing stress, building resilience and gaining deeper personal insight. 

I teach online, in person and outdoors when possible as I’ve an affinity for nature and open spaces finding the experience enriched surrounded by the healing energy of trees, bird song and flowing water.



"I have a vision to create a simple life and live it whole heartedly and fully present" 

Mindfulness Based Living is where I can share my passion for Mindfulness. My intention is to create a space where I can lead others to experience and practice moment to moment awareness and encourage them to lead a mindful-based life. 


My own practice has awakened me to being more present in my day-to-day encounters and activities, provided me with the methods and practices to manage stress, recognise my habitual patterns, appreciate different emotions, develop loving-kindness and compassion.


These methods and practices in mindfulness, loving-kindness and compassion are included in the courses that I teach and are tools to use in daily life. With a regular mindfulness practice our self-awareness can grow and deepen and be the foundation for greater personal development. 


When we lead our daily lives connected to our hearts with awareness and presence we can be of greater benefit to the people and environment surrounding us.
