Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is a program founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This eight week course aims to improve emotional well-being and reduce stress and anxiety.
Over the course of the 8 weeks, participants are thought ways to recognise habitual, automatic reactions that may not serve them well and to respond to their own thoughts and emotions in a less judgemental and more compassionate way.
Mindfulness means being fully aware in the present moment, without trying to change anything. Learning to accept what is, while looking at different ways to deal with difficulties.

We understand the science behind why and how mindfulness and meditation work.
We know first hand how beneficial meditation and mindfulness can be in daily life, having been introduced to them through our own life struggles.
We are committed to helping you find what mindfulness and self-care techniques will help you in your everyday life.
We are committed to our professional development & keeping up to date with wellness so we can continue to share our learnings with you.
We believe different techniques work for different people and it is important to find "your way" of developing a regular practice that suits your life.
