Anxiety and Panic attacks were my reasons for attending the Mindfulness based stress reduction.8 weeks I used to look around to see who would help me when a panic attack was about to start. It could be anything that started me off.
I’ve learnt what mindfulness is and I sort myself out very quickly so the panic doesn’t grip me. I have a wobble but I look back and see how far I come and have a kind of strength I didn’t see before. -Jack
I have really enjoyed these mindful classes with Sarah. I feel she has taught me a lot. She is so kind, that I want to stay involved, so I’ve signed up for another course. She has bought back my confidence and I feel so different. She has told me that I have done it all on my own but I wouldn’t have changed if I didn’t come to this classes that she taught. I feel so much better. She’s easy to get on with and I’ve also made some new friends in the class which is lovely. – Diane
For the past 8 weeks I have attended every class, not wanting to miss one. Each week I took something away to practice and give food for thought. The Mindfulness based Stress reduction has helped me so much, mostly how to stay mindful; I enjoy life so much now. Sarah is so easy to listen to, she is inclusive when she speaks about mindfulness, she makes me want to listen. Everything is understandable; its changes my outlook on life and I am so glad I went. -Lydia

Mindfulness practice shows us how to live in the moment, and how we can get the best from life by not thinking to far ahead or looking back at the past, allowing us to not let negative thought patterns, and overthinking take hold and bring us down.
Mindfulness teaches a different approach to stressful, challenging distressing experiences, the practice encourages us to make better choices and decisions for ourselves that ultimately affect out mental wellbeing .
Think being in the driving seat of your thoughts and feelings. The practical experience show us what it is to experience life from one moment to the next and how good it feels.
When you start to learn the practice of mindfulness, your knowledge increases, it enables us to start seeing real positive changes inside and outwardly. You learn how to bring it into your day to day life at your own pace and when you are prepared.
