Each month I offer two live online mindfulness sessions, which people can join from the comfort of their own home. Some familiarity with mindfulness practice is helpful for participating in this group.
The sessions are offered via the easy to use Zoom platform. Zoom is web-based so does not require any software to be downloaded but it does require a computer with speakers or headphones and a reasonable internet connection to stream live video and ideally a camera and microphone.Read more

A mindful approach for coping with grief.
This 8 week course will have a gentle approach for both understanding and caring for ourselves when we are grieving. We will explore what we know about the grieving process and what supports people to cope and live with grief and loss. We will integrate mindfulness skills that can both support us as we grieve and also support the reduction of stress that is part of the grieving process. The course is a blend of mindfulness practice, education and group discussion. Course notes and audio files for the mindfulness practices will be provided. This programme will be held live on zoom.Read more
