New workshops and courses for 2019
At present we have had to stop our groups and workshops due to the space not being available so we have reduced our services.
Rock painting workshops new dates to be added.
Rock painting is a creative and fun way to spread kindness and love to others. For ages 8-12 yrs.
In the workshop the children can create their design and get to use special pens so they can dry quickly. We discuss ideas and have time to look at what we create together.
This is a popular hobby and after creating the rocks they can take them away and hide in the village or give as presents.
The workshop costs £10 and all rocks and materials are supplied.
Please email email@example.com for a booking form.
Small group so children get full attention of the facilitator.

Mindfulness courses and Workshops
Does your life run at break neck speed?
Do you ever feel that you’re constantly on the go?
Do you ever feel anxious, stressed or depressed?
If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above then Mindfulness classes are for you.
Mindfulness based stress reduction MBSR
This evidenced based 8 week stress reduction programme is increasingly popular for stress management and its close cousin the MBCT is recommended by NICE for treatment of anxiety and depression.
We live in a busy, fast paced world, which can, at times, feel pressured or overwhelming.
This 8 week course guides you through the principles of mindfulness and teaches you stress reduction tools and techniques that you can take forward into the next phase of your lives.
Held over 8 consecutive evenings, this course is suitable for people who have little or no current mindfulness or meditation practise as well as those more experienced looking to support their current practise. Participants must commit to the whole course.
Applicants will be given an informal free telephone assessment session to help determine suitability at this time, and to answer any of your questions.
Group sizes will be no larger than 10, if you are concerned about being in a group, we can discuss this, as there are many benefits to attending as part of a group process. Alternatively, one to one 8 week courses are available on request in instances of sever social anxiety. Tania is also available for individual counselling or CBT sessions.
Tania Brocklehurst MBACP, is a senior accredited BACP counsellor and supervisor , CBT therapist and has attended teacher training in mindfulness with Bangor University.
MBSR: New date is being put in the dairy so we are taking names now as places will be limited.
For further information please email us. A registration form will need to be completed in order to attend the workshops and courses.
