What people say

"I've just completed my second Mindfulness course with Melissa and I would  highly recommend her courses. I've found that through Mindfulness practice my anxiety levels have vastly improved; I am less self critical and now more able to re-appraise stressful situations and re-assess my responses. It has truly been a very, very positive experience."

Vicki, 8-week Mindfulness course
