Mindfulness training
for individuals, schools and organisations

All of our teachers have been trained by the Center of Mindfulness Research and Practice that is part of the School of Psychology at Bangor University – an international center for excellence in mindfulness training. They all have a long personal experience of mindfulness practice and a high level of teaching skill and, where appropriate, receive supervision in the area they work in.

All our teachers adhere to the Good Practice Guidance for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses published by the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers.

The areas we cover include South London, East Grinstead in West Sussex, Caterham in Surrey and Kent

Sue learnt to practise mindfulness more than 20 years ago.. She was surprised and delighted to discover that life became richer and more meaningful and that she was calmer and less stressed - quite something given that she has a tendency to be anxious for England! Whilst Head of Science at a special school her headteacher suggested she trained to teach mindfulness to the pupils - they were stressed and anxious before exams. During this training she learnt about the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course; it was so practical and offered tools she could use everyday at work and at home. She enjoyed lessons more, and so did the pupils. And their achievement went up. Pupils said things like 'I use the mindfulness before an exam and I am less stressed' or 'It helps me to sleep.' or 'I am in less pain.'. Staff asked for regular mindfulness sessions 'It's like WD40. Lessons go more smoothly.'

Moved by the benefits gained from mindfulness training Sue gave up her teaching post in 2013 and set up 'Well-being Now to offer mindfulness to the general public as well as schools. Since then she has introduced mindfulness to thousands of people - in schools, libraries, GP practices, hospitals, charities, gyms on the radio and at the National Gallery.
