Kindful

With thanks to the ‘Open Mental Health Grants Fund’ I am pleased to offer Kindful.

Kindful is a FREE 6-week course for women who have suffered domestic abuse or trauma and would like to learn to live a kinder life through mindfulness and compassion practices.

I offer a safe space, where once a week you can come together with other women, to learn practical strategies and practices to help life feel a little kinder and manageable.

The course focuses on building resilience, self worth, confidence, emotional regulation, compassion for yourself, stress reduction, positive relationships with yourself and others and generally improving or beginning self care.

Feedback from previous course participants:

“Hollie was professional, kind, extremely accepting of everyone and yet able to keep healthy boundaries. She showed the care of each participant and motivated us to continue with our practices. Beautiful and peaceful voice, warm and kind heart topped with expertise and passion for mindfulness.
I am truly grateful. Thank you, Hollie!”

“Kindful gave me the opportunity to notice what I needed at this time. I felt safe with Hollie and the group. I have continued using alot of the mindfulness practices daily which I have been most surprised about but Hollie made it seem so effortless. I would recommend this course to anyone really.”

“The most surprising thing I found I learnt from Kindful was that I can find pockets of joy in each day. I have suffered so much over the last few years and the course allowed me to accept my feelings but know that my thoughts are not facts. Hollie spoke so openly and I felt she was really listening and understanding me. Hollie has taught me to be kind to myself without guilt. Thankyou.
I would recommend to ALL women.”
