If you're feeling overwhelmed or anxious this January, you might be interested in our seven-week virtual mindfulness course led by Dr Fionna Bathgate and Dr Suzy Gray, GOSH clinical psychologists.

Spaces are open to parents and carers of GOSH patients.

Mindfulness-based practice has the potential to lower stress, anxiety and depression. It can promote relaxation, improve concentration and raise self-awareness.

To gain the most benefit, you will need to be able to attend most of the sessions and have the intention to complete daily meditation practice.
