Research about mindfulness shows measurable and significant benefits to our wellbeing including less stress, less anxiety, greater focus, increased calmness, and greater happiness. In the same way that we attend to our physical health, it’s also important to attend to our mental health, our emotional wellbeing. Over two decades of clinical research has shown that it can benefit people suffering from anxiety, recurrent depression, chronic pain, substance abuse and other conditions. You can learn it from a book or an app on your phone, but sometimes it helps to have a guide to get you started on your journey and taking a course is a great way to do this. Our feedback speaks for itself see link and those that have taken courses with us tell us that the benefits include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Reduced rumination
  • Decreased negative thoughts, depression and anxiety
  • Less emotional reactivity and more effective emotion regulation
  • Increased focus and concentration
  • More cognitive flexibility
  • Improved working memory
  • An overall sense of calm and wellbeing and enjoying life more fully

Our courses help you to rewire the brain, to self-regulate, restore balance to the nervous system. build resilience and reprogram the mind. When we relax, our mind slows down and then soothing hormones pump into our body enabling us to feel calm, and tension free and we begin to feel good. We enable the relaxation response to kick in which negates the stress response and we can begin to reset.
