Mindfulness-based therapy

Mindfulness therapies bring together the timeless traditions of mindfulness meditation with the science of modern psychology.  

Mindfulness practice helps you to:

  • live fully in the present, rather than being stuck in worry about the past or the future
  • be more aware of patterns of low mood and stress, and respond to them skilfully
  • choose your actions wisely and take care of yourself
  • learn to accept yourself and your feelings, however painful, as this can make you less likely to suffer from depression and stress in the future
  • find calmness and equanimity within life’s joys and difficulties
What courses are available?

Testimonials

Here are some comments from people who have attended our Mindfulness courses:

It has given me a bigger tool box for dealing with problems and worries. Being in a group with others, it helped me realize I am not alone to have problems.

A quite wonderful course, which offered real help and inspiration in not just coping with life but taking it to another level. Practical and sensible and realistic but also magical. I would of course recommend this to anyone.

The course has helped me to get through difficult emotional situations and feel better in the moment – I feel I have strategies for coping and new ways to view the world and my emotions.

I thought the course was very well thought out, and extremely well-run. I feel that I benefited enormously from the techniques I learned, and have continued to use them in my daily life as a way of coping with work-related stress. So I am very grateful to her and those who organised the course for a brilliant introduction to the principles, and hope to develop that learning further (as time permits!) Thank you.

I have found this course excellent. It has helped me a great deal and I am continuing with the practice at home. I would recommend this course to anyone (everyone). Mindfulness has added a new and positive dimension to my life.

A very thoughtfully structured course, taking me a step-by-step towards an extremely helpful meditation practice.   I feel much more calm as a result of the practice and coping with difficulty.   Excellent and clear.   Compassionate and stimulating teaching
