8 week course: Mindful Living

Mindfulness is often taught over 8 sessions in a group setting.  Learning with an experienced and highly qualified mindfulness teacher  can be a life enhancing experience that really impacts on how you life & work  and provides opportunities to reduce anxiety and over thinking. This course is about so much more than listening to  a track on an app.

Mindfulness course participant comment  “It is already proving very useful in daily life. I am finding that my anxiety levels are a lot lower and I am able to respond to stressful situations rather than reacting to them. I am sleeping better and I am much more aware of what is ‘going on’ inside me and how I am holding myself. My head is clearer and I feel less overwhelmed by situations.”

 I always run small groups to ensure a personal approach can be taken  to learning this valuable skill and make it accessible and practical.
