Next mindfulness course will be in September
Details to be confirmed. But it will most likely be on Wednesdays starting around 6pm. I will be holding this course online via zoom to allow more people to be able to attend.It is an 8 week course and there is also a one day retreat. Please contact me if you would like to find out more or sign up.
This has been running since October 2020 and is a weekly session to which all are welcome. Classes will be every Tuesday at 7.30 pm and last around 20-30 minutes. No experience is necessary and the sessions will be suitable to all regardless of your previous experience. My aim is to give you a quiet space in which to slow down breathe and notice how you are doing. in other words to ‘experience your experience’. I have written a few posts on the benefits of mindfulness on the blog page of this site and won’t repeat that here. It’s suffice to say, regular mindfulness will improve your life! I ask for a one off donation to cover costs and suggest an amount around £35. However please do not let finances stop you attending. You can pay (or not) what you wish.
New courses on the horizon!
From 1:1 sessions to shorter 4 week courses and the full MBSR. More details to follow soon! Watch this space as well as the facebook page (click here) and on twitter @trustingmind ). I can fit some 1:1 sessions in right now. Costs will depend on length and number of sessions

The 8-week Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) course will help you deal with stress and get the most out of life. This course will skilfully lead you through a series of short meditations and gentle movement practices that will start to reveal the habitual mind patterns in which we all circle. This allows you to see more clearly how feelings of anxiety, worry and of being overwhelmed can develop.
Mindfulness can help everyone savour the simple and good things in life by allowing us to return to the present moment and increase awareness of what is happening while it is happening.
Whilst the course is time for you to nurture your own mental and physical well-being, in later weeks this also opens up the opportunity for this nurturing to help those around and close to us as well.
The course is endorsed by many health care providers (including the NHS and is highly recommended by those who have experienced its benefits.
