What is Mindfulness?
Drawing on ancient Eastern philosophies, mindfulness has been adapted to the western world and has proven significant therapeutic benefits to alleviate the stresses of modern day life.
Mindfulness builds self-awareness which assists you to recognise stress triggers and gives you the strategies to deal with them – both physically and mentally.
It enables you to pay attention to the present moment and reduces the impact of being caught up in a busy mind.
