The Breathing Space project was borne from the desire to use a deep understanding of mindfulness and meditation, gained from decades’ worth of experience, to help people with their mental health.
"Men today are confronting many different challenges on their roles in society, and dealing with things like job insecurity. These Mindfulness courses get you to acknowledge and deal with your troubles in very helpful ways. So many would benefit.”
"A welcoming space; safe and non-judgemental, behaviours which were modelled by the teacher, who had a lot of experience on mindfulness and its value in depression and addiction issues. Highly recommended."
"The Three Minute Breathing Space has made a real difference to my life. I use this tool a lot. It breaks the circuit of anxiety. It takes my mind off negativity."
"We stayed with the same group over the eight weeks of the course and we all got to know each other well and that consistency was one of the things I really liked – I’m still in touch with some of the group."
"I can respond to difficult situations in more level headed ways. The course has been helpful for my mood. When I get anxious, I place a hand on my tummy and when I feel nauseous, I come back to a place of safety in my body. I feel safe, and that helps with the panic attacks. They haven’t stopped but I am aware of when I am going to have one, and when I have them, I can now bear them."
