glass ball in hand with sunsetWe offer online and in-person mindfulness training for beginners and more experienced practitioners, including one-to-one mindfulness coaching and mentoring, 8-week mindfulness group courses, and sessions for organisations.

Our programme is led by highly experienced mindfulness teacher, supervisor and author Ed Halliwell. According to Psychologies magazine, Ed is "one of the UK's most popular mindfulness teachers", while the Guardian calls him "one of the UK's leading mindfulness instructors and writers."

One-to-One Mindfulness Coaching/Mentoring


Ed offers in-person and online one-to-one mindfulness taster sessions, eight-week courses and individual mindfulness coaching and mentoring. For beginners, this may take the form of a gold-standard 8-week mindfulness course taught individually. The course teaches us how to cultivate awareness and be less caught up in automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns. Participants learn meditation practices which can transform daily life, including sitting meditation, body scanning and mindful movement. Those with more experience may benefit from mindfulness mentoring, which offers a space for meditation, reflection and inquiry to help people stay engaged with mindfulness for a full and flourishing life. One-to-one sessions offer many advantages, including time and content flexibility, ensuring the training is tailored precisely to your needs. Find out more about 121-mindfulness training

What is Mindfulness and how can it help?

Ed Book 2

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention, staying present and responding skilfully to what’s happening in our lives. It helps us manage our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships with awareness and compassion, leading to greater well-being and appreciation, as well as more choice in how to meet difficulties. Mindfulness is cultivated by a range of simple meditation practices and approaches to living, as taught on our courses. Our approach is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, which was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts medical school, and which has been used for nearly 40 years to help with stress, anxiety, and chronic health problems, as well as to promote resilience and flourishing. We also include all key elements from the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Life (also known as Mindfulness For Life or MBCT- L) course, which is a further development of the MBSR approach. We also draw as appropriate from related programmes and disciplines such as Mindfulness Based Compassionate Living (MBCL) and Acceptance And Commitment Therapy (ACT). An extensive body of clinical research has consistently shown that mindfulness is helpful for working with a wide range of conditions, as well as for optimising well-being, and it is now taught widely in healthcare, education, workplaces and other settings.
