Mindfulness Meditation Courses (MBSR)
- a radical way of improving your health and wellbeing
Due to the Covid virus pandemic, all courses were suspended for 2020 but I hope to resume sometime in the summer or autumn of 2021.

We all have times when we experience stress, along with difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. Mindfulness meditation training can help us learn new ways of handling stress and all that comes with it.
Mindfulness can significantly change the way we relate to stress and difficulty while enhancing our awareness and sense of well-being. By developing more awareness, we can learn to deal more effectively with difficulties and take more pleasure in the good things in life.
There’s increasing evidence that Mindfulness meditation can help to reduce our anxiety levels and teach us new ways to manage stress. The results of various clinical studies and research speak for themselves, highlighting benefits such as:
A 70 per cent reduction in anxiety
Fewer visits to the GP
An increase in disease-fighting antibodies, suggesting improvements to the immune system
Longer and better quality sleep, with fewer sleep disturbances
A reduction in negative feelings like anger, tension and depression
The evidence in support of Mindfulness meditation is so strong that almost three-quarters of GPs think it would be beneficial for all patients to learn mindfulness meditation skills.
