What people have said about the course:
“This course has been one of the best things I have ever done – I never thought it would change my life and me in the way it has done”
“ I have found it difficult because I am naturally such a fast/busy person so I have been frustrated sometimes when my mind won’t be still/focused….it is reassuring to hear how others find it difficult to focus their minds – the group has been warm supportive and non judgmental”
“This course and the things I have learnt have been a gift to me that I will continue to use for the rest of my life “
“I feel as though I have finally found a way to like myself and be kind to myself, having tried all other avenues ( meditation CBT, counselling). I feel I am able to use this and feel really positive about the future”
“ I have found the mindfulness very helpful in reducing physical signs of anxiety and relaxing my mind. It has slowed my heart rate and released tension I had felt in my upper body. I have really enjoyed the class and am going to miss it!”
“It has given me a genuine tool that wil help and will get better with practice. Anxiety will still be with me but I look at it differently – we are better friends”
A course book and cds will be provided and telephone support offered throughout the course if needed.
