What to expect on the course
The 4-week programme of mindfulness training is completed at your own pace. Leading mindfulness teachers, Ed and Tessa, guide you through instructional videos, interactive sessions, and mindfulness assignments supported by motivational emails. Explore how mindfulness can improve your mental wellbeing, review what you have learnt along the way and chart your progress with self-assessment tools.
By the end of the course, you'll be naturally practising mindfulness in your daily life, helping you to be present and not caught up in negative thoughts, to be more aware and respond more skilfully to events, and to reduce and maintain low levels of stress, depression and anxiety.

Your Mindfulness Teachers
Ed Halliwell and Tessa Watt are leading mindfulness teachers. They are highly qualified and experienced, having both completed Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) teacher development at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice - Bangor University, UK.
Ed and Tessa's approach to teaching mindfulness is both open but also very carefully considered. Together, they make learning mindfulness refreshingly simple and deeply personal.
This course doesn't just tell you, it shows you. I found the format and methods very helpful and everything is broken down into digestible chunks. A really helpful course that enormously improved my life. One of the best things I've ever done.
This course was incredibly valuable to me. I feel much better now and I can see a clear way forwards. The course was taxing but well worth it. Thank you so much.
What an important and necessary journey. The whole course bursts with valuable insights regarding mindfulness practice in life. I know that your advice shall be effective through thick and thin, trials and tribulations, good times and bad, happy days and sad. Thank you so very much, Tessa and Ed.
Be mindful is the first step I have taken to help me to relax and to tackle stress related problems without medication. I found the information given throughout the four week course was very helpful to me in understanding the process of mindfulness. The effort to practice mindfulness on a daily basis was worthwhile. I am calmer and more relaxed.
This is a fantastic course! It really does help with dealing with thoughts and situations on a daily basis. You have to keep up with the practices to feel the benefit, but it really is worth it. Since doing this course I have been much happier and more relaxed within myself, and feel that I now have something that actually works to help cope with stress and bad days.
I found the course invaluable as I can see the change in my life already. I tend to react somewhat hastily and then regret my words/actions and this course has helped me create more space for reflection. I think that mindfulness is a great practice to help us relate to others in a more accepting way whilst creating boundaries that help us to respect ourselves
