Thank you for the last 8-weeks. I really do feel like I am at the start of a new pathway to a new way of being. Really glad I did it and its been lovely to work with you.Jane, Ilkeston
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt some very useful techniques to apply and to share with the wider team. I intend to continue practicing Mindfulness and to set time aside to practice the meditation techniques.Colin, Rolls Royce
Today I've completed the MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course) with Jo Christa Taylor at the Bridge Centre, Mickleover. This has been a wonderful experience, relaxing, informative and empowering.
If you're feeling stressed with life or just want a better way to cope with the daily stresses of life I wholeheartedly recommend this course. Over time I feel blessed to have experienced some amazing meditation teachers and Jo is certainly one of them.
Three years ago my life changed forever when I had my first episode of depression and anxiety. At that time I didn't know what to do as I had never experienced anything like it before, so I turned to the medical profession for help and was promptly put on antidepressants.
Fantastic I hear you say, good response from the doctor and I would have to agree, however due to the state of the national health services funding this is pretty much all they can do for you.
Three years on and around Christmas time I do down the slippery slop again. Recognising this my wonderful wife found an advert at our local alternative therapy clinic for a mindfulness course and signed me up.
Having had a brief chat to the nice lady running the course I entered the room for the first time with some apprehension. Since that day I have never looked back it is without doubt the best thing I have done. I have now learnt some brilliant techniques to help me be the person I should be and to aleviate my anxiety.
I would recommend that if you like me find yourself lost and not able to cope with the rigorous of life you give it a go and if you live in the Derby area then give Jo Christa Taylor a ring as she is simply wonderful.
Thanks Jo for helping me to be me again.
