Career Coaching Brighton

Completing an MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) Course in 2013 was a life-changing experience for me, and in 2015 I successfully completed Level 2  Teacher Training  (TTR2) in  Mindfulness Meditation  (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction – MBSR) at the Mindful Academy in 2015.

In addition I am trained with The Mindfulness Exchange (TME) to deliver their 6-week MWorkplaceMT Course.

I now teach Mindfulness Workshops & Courses to businesses in Brighton and London and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses to international groups and 1:1 via Zoom video conferencing. I also teach at the Mindful Academy training Retreat Centre in Spain.

In addition I’ve been a Talent Acquisiton Consultant for the Digital and Data Marketing Industry for over 20 years . I started my career in the heady days of the  Direct Marketing industry’s explosive growth and my interest in all things digital led me to develop my strong candidate and client network in Digital & Mobile Marketing.  In the past few years I’ve successfully recruited for some of the biggest Agency networks on the planet, Online and Mobile Gaming companies in the UK and Gibraltar, an International Retail Media company and one of Europe’s leading Telecomms companies  as well as for a variety of up-and-coming start-ups and SME’s.

In addition to my experience as a Recruitment Consultant, I also have a Diploma in Coaching and have successfully coached a number of Business Leaders, Managers  and Entrepreneurs, helping them to reach their full career potential.

I’d love to discuss with you how I can help you or help your business – or both – so to schedule a free no obligation exploratory chat please call me on 07825775165 or drop me an email at claire@clairegriffinalent.com

SINEM AKSAY, FOUNDER OF MINDFULNESS TURKEY: CO-TRAINER

I’m very happy to now be collaborating with Sinem on larger Mindfulness Programs for Corporate companies and companies with multinational locations.

Over the past 15 years, Sinem has worked for several companies including two international conglomerates, one family business and two startups – the latest one being her own! Her roles have included business development, key account management, team management, partner management (mostly in telecoms and call centres) and corporate sales. Her most recent position before starting her own business was Director of Operations at a US-based startup e-learning company. This experience was a turning point on her career path, as she decided to combine her e-learning expertise with a passion for mindfulness nurtured at university. Her desire to improve the lives of others through the practical application of mindfulness is the foundation stone of her company, which was established in 2015.

Adhering to the UK Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness Trainers, Sinem continues to develop her training skills by following the Bangor University Teacher-Training Pathway. She is also currently enrolled on a Mindfulness at Work Certificate programme co-presented by Oxford University and Bangor University and a Master’s programme on Mindfulness Intervention at Bangor University.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Calgary (Canada) and Middle East Technical University in Ankara (Turkey) as well as an MBA from Suffolk University in Boston (USA)

Sinem currently lives in London and works locally and internationally teaching Mindfulness.

Little known facts about my CV...

I worked on Wall Street in the 80’s, and spent 5 years living up a mountain in rural Andalucia in Spain, project managing local Spanish builders to build and renovate properties and then working as an Account Director for Andalucia.com, Southern Spain’s leading information portal. I also had a clothes shop in Madrid. It didn’t last long (how were we to know Zara was just about to launch?!) but boy, it was fun!  I am now back where I was brought up – in West Sussex – and very happy to be living just a few hundred metres from beautiful Shoreham Beach.
