If you suffer with stress, anxiety or depression, (and even if you don’t) these sessions may be really helpful for you. The practice of Mindfulness has been clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression and add more calmness and enjoyment to life. 

The first session introduces how and why mindfulness works. The following sessions support and encourage you to develop skills in practicing mindfulness. You will be encouraged to do short tasks between sessions, to help you to strengthen your skills, which will deepen through time. At the end of the course, you will be given lots of progression advice, should you wish to continue to learn more.
