Welcome - I'm so glad you're making a start

This course will help you to understand stress better, recognise your own patterns of reaction, and help you develop new, healthier responses. In the process you will become better at focusing on present activities, with less distraction in terms of past and future worries. You will also develop emotional intelligence and life skills for every situation.

This course is just the beginning. How well it works depends on your commitment. You'll have to commit to at least 6 weeks of practice every day (at least 5 minutes every morning and evening, plus many 'mindful moments' in the day). Just attending the webinars will interesting, but the real work is done by you in your own time. This is what it takes, and I promise you that the benefits are immeasurable.

Don't jump ahead - it's important to start with the core practices before moving on.

I'm here to support you, so you can ask questions in the live sessions, but also feel free email me.
