Suitability and booking
The course is open to all. We have introductory ‘taster’ sessions throughout the year, please register your interest here.
The course is open to all. Although mindfulness can be an effective practice it may not be appropriate for everybody e.g. if you are currently suffering from clinical depression. The course cannot substitute for medical advice or professional treatment but in many cases, can be taken alongside them. Please contact us if you are unsure.
Once you have booked on to a course, final confirmation will be subject to completion of a short questionnaire and an informal discussion with your course leader about the course’s suitability for you at this time. The questions will ask you for a bit more information about yourself, any specific condition that brings you to the course and your motivation. This will help you and the course leader explore how best to support your process over the 8-weeks. If it is decided that the course is not suitable at this stage a full refund will be offered.
