Free online mindfulness course for parents and carers of GOSH patients

4 Dec 2020, 11:12 a.m.

Join us online for an 8-week journey towards a calmer mind. Taking place from January 28th to March 18th, learn how to practice mindfulness alongside clinical psychologists Dr Fionna Bathgate and Dr Jennifer Gardner.

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.
