Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

MBSR is an 8 week, 10 session course, comprising 28 hours of teaching.


It is a structured programme in mindfulness meditation training and mindful movement practice, proven to improve well-being, pain, handling everyday challenges and coping with medical conditions.


Designed to help people learn how to incorporate and apply mindfulness practice into our everyday lives, it's intention is to provide a structured pathway to relieve suffering for those facing a wide range of medical and emotional issues and for those of us who are simply finding the everyday demands of modern day life tough and stressful.


It has been shown to help people adopt more positive health behaviours and make lifestyle changes to support our health. It promotes enhanced emotional resilience and develops an overarching sense of better well-being.


Anecdotal and scientific research shows that MBSR is an effective approach to health and well-being improvement and will give you skills that you will be able to use for the rest of your life.


The classes are live, online via Zoom, and are interactive, there is no pressure for anyone to share but there is opportunity to do so if you feel comfortable with it. 

There is an orientation session a week or so prior to the course beginning, then we meet each week for 2 to 2.5 hours. Each week follows a theme and comprises a variety of mindfulness practices, discussion of the practices, learning activities around how we perceive stress and talks on stress and news ways of handling it. Home practice forms a large part of the course, each week I will provide access to audio practices to do each day at home and a weekly "workbook".

There is an optional but recommended day of home practice, a retreat, on the Saturday in-between Week 6 & Week 7.

You may also contact me in-between sessions if you need to. There are a maximum of 20 places on each course.

"Vicky is an excellent teacher. The time flew by and I looked forward to the following week. It was a haven during lockdown. I started to incorporate the principles into my daily life and felt the benefits almost immediately. I slept better, took more care of my diet and increased my exercise. Relationships improved as I feel I have learnt to listen better too.  It has been a very personal journey. I have started to recognise my stressors and have learnt how to relax more. I learnt how to let things go, I worry less and care more about what really matters in my life."
