Why train in mindfulness now?
Many of us are finding the continued uncertainty in this time of Covid unsettling. Mindfulness training has been shown to help relieve anxiety, stress, low mood and depression, so this work has perhaps never been more relevant. Sessions include guided meditation, exploration and discussions of relevant themes and support for developing a mindfulness practice at home, to whatever level is appropriate for the individual. Annie and her colleague Dr Carolyn Drake have carefully adapted the MBCT course to be suitable for working online, in these challenging times.

"I'm impressed by how well the group works on Zoom" Linda, Brighton
