"I am amazed that mindfulness is not yet mainstream.  It's applications and principles cross every generation in dealing with the stressors of modern daily life.  As a Psychiatrist I can see its value with all service users I come across in my day to day practice.  It should be as widely available through the NHS as antidepressants and therapy as a treatment option.  Personally it has been one of the best things I have encountered.  It has made me a more thoughtful person, a better doctor, mum and wife"

MBCT course participant

"I had been interested in meditation for a long time but was never sure how to go about it (other than through religious organisations, which isn't me). The York MBSR course seemed to offer an alternative and it more than lived up to my expectations... The combination of practical information and advice, and the chance to  practice with others and really feel how it works (and it did!), was just right for me. Now I have at last found what I was looking for and I enjoyed it so much!"

MBSR course participant


"This course [MBSR] should be made part of the national curriculum for children, be an essential part of any degree course and be provided every 3 years by employers to their employees. It should be developed by the prison service and armed forces. In short, it teaches life skills essential for society to continue to function"

GP / MBSR course participant



“MBCT has changed my life.  I am back at work full time and feel like I am a better mum and a better partner.  I am enjoying life now whereas before I was constantly depressed and suffered from three panic attacks a week”
