"Life changing. Having spent a lifetime (and a fortune) learning and practicing various techniques from psychotherapy to medication and everything in between, this course brought the whole lot together - for the better. A real lightbulb moment and massive cog in the wheel of self discovery. I’m less aggressive, less reactive and far more aware of where my decision making comes from." S.M Oban

"I have lived with physical pain for many years. The mindfulness course has eased it considerably. I am not in the same pain and I am not adding to it by worrying about it. This has been so helpful for me."  S.S Oban

"This mindfulness course is without doubt life changing! Finishing the course I feel I have learnt so much that helps me keep calm, relaxed and focused in the midst of the daily challenges of busy life. If you were not sure whether to try it then my advice is definately do it!"  R.S Oban

"I found the Mindfulness course to be fantastic.   Having suffered from depression and anxiety for years it has been life changing and so refreshing to have some mental peace and a break from the incessant torrent of thoughts and self critical whirlwinds.  It has helped give me some tools I need to be able to better respond to life's issues and more importantly given me a powerful perspective into who I actually am.   Thank you Claire - your  teaching has been wonderful, full of insight and very clearly communicated.  I will see you again soon!"  K. M Argyll

"I found the course extremely beneficial, not being in a good place when it started. It doesn't take much effort or time to feel the benefit but you have to put in regular practice. Claire has obviously sound knowledge and has a really easy way with her which helped everyone to feel at ease and allowed all to share their feelings and experiences". W.A Argyll

"I recently completed the MBSR 8-week course. Before starting I was worried about the time investment, but from the very first minute, I realised that to the contrary it would be one of the best time investments I had ever made. I loved every session and have benefited hugely from Claire's knowledge, insight, wisdom and general loveliness. I was also apprehensive about taking such a class with others but there was nothing to worry about that either." C. W Argyll

"This 8 week MBSR course is life-changing. It enables you to become aware of your own mind and its unique pattern of working and it gives you the ability to train your mind so your life can be very much improved. Knowledge and understanding are very powerful tools, especially when they are about yourself! Claire is an excellent teacher, who guides you, gently but with strength, through this wonderful exploration of your mind and shows you that you have the tools within you to truly change your life for the better and to make the most of every experience and every day. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who truly wants to improve their life, not only for their own sake but also for the sake of others in their life." F. C Argyll.

I continue to practice and the benefits continue to improve my life and my relationships.

Huge appreciation and gratitude to Claire for bringing the course to Mid Argyll". A.C Campbeltown

All in all she made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience, thank-you Claire." D. A Argyll

"I have recently finished the 8 week one to one Mindfulness course with Claire using Facetime as I live in Cornwall. It felt like we were in the same room and was not awkward at all.

Claire has a gentle and intuitive way of teaching and she is always thorough in her approach to each class". K F Cornwall.

"I feel much happier since doing mindfulness with Claire. My husband and family have noticed a big difference - they say I am more relaxed, I don't get worked up like I used to and that I am easier to be with! I can cope with a tricky member of my family (who used to press all my buttons) which has made life so much easier. Thank you so much indeed. G. R Argyll

"We are very lucky to have such a dedicated, competent teacher here in Argyll. I have completed a one-to-one course with Claire that was phenomenal. The amount of work that she put into the course to tailor it to my needs was evident. I think anyone would benefit from a course with her." S.T Argyll

"I have been fortunate enough to sit in on many & varied Mindfulness taster sessions but never have I experienced anything quite as effective as the one with Claire. She has a gift in presenting the method in a more accessible format than most & enabled me to change my own time spent practicing into a more effective time. The position of her 'studio' is just the most perfect spot & separation from all things technological helps step away from the world & sink into the practice. I can't recommend her as a teacher more highly. "  G. P York

"I have benefited in so many ways from learning mindfulnes from Claire. What has been particularly helpful for me has been exploring difficult communications - it has transformed a very problematic relationship.

"I really enjoyed my first introductory Mindfulness session with Claire. She was clear and attentive and I found her instruction simple to follow. It was easy to keep focussed throughout, and the feeling of relaxation and wellbeing at the end of the class was extremely rewarding. I feel very encouraged to be able to apply her Mindfulness practise into my everyday life, with increasingly positive results!"  K. Bevan, Cornwall

"I have really enjoyed the Mindful Movement classes. I noticed I was more relaxed even after the 1st one hour class and each class thereafter has helped me to be calmer and appreciate the small things in my life.
