Compassionate Mindful Resilience Training Course

no background

I offer bespoke course for businesses and groups. Please get in touch if you need a bespoke offering.


My most popular group course is The Compassionate Mindfulness Resilience (CMR) course, which is over 8 hours of teaching, costing £120 per person.  It teaches accessible, simple to learn, effective and evidence-based Mindfulness techniques, with an emphasis on compassionate practices. The course will help you to manage stress, anxiety and increase your self-compassion and resilience.

The program is aimed at beginners or those who want to develop a basic practice. It runs over a period of one month, meeting weekly for 2-2.5 hours, on Zoom.  Anyone from anywhere in the world, with access to Zoom, is welcome to join us.  It is suitable for corporate bookings. Please get in touch to inquire if you would like to join.

The course was developed and written by Mindfulness UK and is currently being researched by Newcastle University for its impact with very sick patients, nurses and others to show its effectiveness in building resilience and developing mindfulness and self-compassion. I deliver these sessions myself. 


The course costs £120, per person, for all four sessions and includes some take away resources.  If you are in receipt of Universal Credit, I am able to offer the course at a reduced cost, which is £80.  If you are a Malvern resident and/or a low-paid carer, nurse or other key worker, I can also offer a 10% discount.  A family combined income of below £35 000 including all benefits/housing benefits, would be a broad view of the criteria as 'low-paid'.  

Reasons this course might be for you

This course will be a good match for you if you:

- Are busy. The course needs a commitment of 2.5 hours a week, via Zoom, over four weeks. Spending an extra 10 minutes most days in between will enable you to put into practice your learning and get more out;

- Like and need practical strategies which you can then practice at home;

- Want to manage your real-life challenges such as anxiety, fear, striving and stress differently;

- Want to have more self-compassion and be kinder to yourself and others;

- Need to be more resilient and cope better with uncomfortable situations and feelings;

- Want something beginner-friendly or suitable if you have little experience or previous success with mindfulness.

What is the content of each session?

Each session is 2.5 hours, including a break. There is a 20 minutes 'Extra-time' at the end of each session for deeper exploration , so please allow a little extra time if you would like to ask anything more specific to yourself, within the group setting.

Session One - Exploring Mindfulness and Compassion

Session Two - Cultivating Emotional Intelligence

Session Three - Developing Resilience

Session Four - Feeling Resourced and Connected

When is your next course?

My next course starts in September 2022 and will run on Saturday mornings from 10:00 - 12:30.   It will be on Zoom.  It costs £120.  If there are less than 4 participants I will offer the choice of us doing the course in my garden room, in Malvern.  I can run the course 1:1 but the cost would be my hourly rate and being 1:1 may be quicker or slower depending on your needs.

Is there anything else more advanced?

I offer retreats and one to one work for more therapeutic practices.  These cover looking deeper inside and finding balance and acceptance, or support with relationships, resourcing ourselves when we feel overwhelm and so on.  Please look at my pages on Retreats and One to one therapeutic work.
