"The Mindfulness for Stress course helped me with being stuck in my head, not feeling safe to rest and understanding the way my mind works to give me a more objective view of reality. It also helped with my catastrophic thinking, negative beliefs and physical anxiety symptoms. It helped me be more compassionate with myself and feel less tense in the evenings after the course. I felt more able to cope at a very overwhelming time of stress and better deal with a traumatic time. I’m now able to notice more when I need to stop and pause, able to be kinder to myself, scheduling time to rest and meditate more. I would definitely recommend this course, because it helps you build mindfulness into your daily life without needing to make huge changes. The little changes make a big difference."

"Working with Tammy is a joy. It feels very safe, confidential and encouraging. There is no judgement, no right or wrong, just learning and support. It’s a very calming, reassuring and nourishing experience.
It is worth it in so many ways and it’s also great value for money. You learn about some really simple while powerful models and techniques to bring you into yourself and the present and out of your head. I would definitely do it because the benefits are wonderful.
"Daily meditation has become a way of supporting my mental wellbeing without a doubt. I think I’m breathing more deeply consistently in general.
I feel more present, grounded, realistic, calm, positive. The kindness mediations encourage me to be compassionate to myself. I wouldn’t be without it. It’s the sort of course I wish I’d discovered and embraced years ago."
- Gillian Gabriel, Mindfulness for Stress participant
"It’s been an incredibly challenging time and Tammy’s ‘Mindfulness for Stress’ supported me throughout with encouraging me to take daily walks in nature, committing to a regular meditation practice, attending a wonderful meditation/woodland retreat and taking time to slow down, say ‘no’ and show myself compassion.
Tammy is wonderfully supportive and makes everyone feel welcome whatever their background / concerns. She facilitates inclusive sessions where you’re encouraged to disclose as much as you feel comfortable to share with others. She keeps the group connected and motivated throughout the programme with regular messages via WhatsApp. It was really easy to access the meditations, homework reminders and poems and as a group we enjoyed connecting and sharing our learning journey.
If you're thinking about this course - do it! It will have such a positive impact on your life in so many ways and will inspire you to follow a path of mindfulness for your own well-being and for those you love and support around you."
