Welcome to Southsea Mindfulness
We have a passion for offering mindfulness courses to our wonderful local community in and around the Solent Region.
Established in 2015, we have now taught hundreds of students locally and continue to evolve what we offer to share the latest evidence based and heartfelt practices .
So what is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to our experience so that we can see clearly what is happening from moment to moment, including body sensations, thoughts and emotions. When we know our experience more intimately we can then respond more wisely to the demands of life and the challenges that we may face.
Through paying attention non judgementally, and with curiosity and kindness, we can begin to create space to step away from our automatic physiological and emotional reactions to everyday events. While mindfulness has its roots in Buddhist meditation practices, it is now being embraced in western health care and medicine on it's own or as the basis of many therapeutic models.
“ Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” — Victor Frankl Psychiatrist and Holocaust Survivor

What people say
Having just completed this course, I couldn't recommend it enough. Sabrina guided us through the course with humour and compassion, they have been such a fantastic introduction to practising mindfulness. Although the process has its ups and downs - be warned, it can be tough! - it was totally worth it, and also great to meet up and share experiences with the other group members every week. It's made the world of difference to me, thank you so much! X
