Who We Are
I'm Tienne Simons and I am the founder of HeadRest. HeadRest is a small business that provides counselling and mindfulness training to individuals and the community. We have a commitment to providing affordable and accessible services and attempt to accommodate all income brackets. We'll talk with you, let you know what our courses offer and help you work out whether a group program or individual counselling might work best for you.
I established HeadRest Mindfulness Training in 2014 when I became convinced that MBSR was a useful addition to individual counselling and in some cases more appropriate.
Four years later HeadRest has grown. We have consistently run 4-6 MBSR programs a year in our local inner west community, run a monthly practice group and a yearly compassion-based course for our MBSR grads.
We have developed an in-school accredited program for teachers and train teachers across NSW. We have run mindful parenting courses, and courses with students, as well as mindfulness groups with teens, in corporate workplaces and community centres.
I'm pleased to announce that we are now bringing quality counselling to the HeadRest brand with HeadRest Counselling. After 30 years of providing counselling to other organisations, I am opening a private practice in Marrickville.
