Welcome to
Mindfulness, Acceptance and Change

We are committed to working together to offer a range of Mindfulness-based training courses and workshops.

What really motivates us to do this work together is the experience of our own personal struggles and the knowledge, through practice, persistence and compassion that there is a more liberating way of managing the experiences that inevitably arise if we are to have a life well-lived.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a way to develop our awareness of the ongoing stream of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in the body.


It is a way of paying attention, with intention, to what is occurring in the present moment.


It is also about noticing the inevitable judgements and criticisms in the mind and working with them in a completely different way.


General benefits of mindfulness can include:


  • improvement in general health and well-being

  • stress reduction

  • increased ability to relax

  • improved sleep

  • increased capacity to deal with difficult situations

  • a sense of feeling more satisfied with life.

What we offer:

courses and workshops

It can feel difficult at times to create space away from the everyday busyness of our lives.


We can give ourselves that space by practicing with others, sharing experiences and nurturing our own health and well-being.


We will practice core mindfulness exercises, interspersed with inspiring poems and stories.
