Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Participant, Autumn 2018

“Really well delivered and planned. The group came together well – it felt like a safe space.”

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Participant, Autumn 2017

“I have discovered ways to pause when needed and to take small ‘time outs’ especially in stressful situations – to almost readjust and obtain a greater perspective. I’ve come to accept that things don’t need to be done perfectly and to be more accepting of some situations and people.”

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Participant, 2016

“I am more aware, more relaxed and less stressed as a result of having done the course. I enjoyed the process ”

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Participant, Autumn 2018

“Thank you for running this extremely thought provoking and inspirational course.”
