Register your interest now for the next Mindfulness Group Course in Melbourne.

Don’t miss out, places are limited to 15 participants per course.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You will join a small, friendly group of like-minded people, no more than 15, in a supportive judgement-free space where you can be yourself. Comfortable chairs, tables, and cushions will be available to help you learn whilst feeling relaxed and at ease. Water and herbal tea will also be provided.

You will not have to worry about any scary role-plays or forced interactions or activities! You are only encouraged to interact and share with the group if you feel comfortable to do so. In Week 1 we will briefly introduce ourselves so we can get to know each other and build a warm supportive group environment. However, moving on from this, your involvement in group discussions can be as little or as much as you like.

Each session is a mix of interesting content and guided mindfulness exercises, usually 4 or 5 per session. The exercises are gentle and allow you the freedom to stay seated in your chair or assume any position that feels right for your body.

You won’t leave each session with pressure to complete a long list of homework tasks! Suggestions are certainly provided but your amount of practice is your choice and can be flexible to suit your lifestyle and goals. We want you to see real results and changes so when deciding if this course is right for you please factor in that between-session practice tasks are a part of this course and strongly encouraged. Each week you will receive a range of specially created handouts, prompt cards, scripts, and other resources for you to take home and keep.

Picture yourself putting aside an hour and a half for four short weeks, to enjoy learning valuable life skills in a peaceful space. You will leave each session feeling relaxed, empowered, and inspired!

FEEDBACK FROM RECENT PARTICIPANTS

Tania
Enrolled Nurse

“Steph, I can't thank you enough for what you've taught me about mindfulness in daily life and the relaxing and enjoyable exercises we did in our sessions. I have noticed that I am sleeping better and I'm also feeling a lot happier and less stressed. I would love to join another of your group courses in the future and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel better, reduce stress and enjoy life more.”

Sarah
Community Rehabilitation Support Worker
“I loved all topics covered, but found the topics about thoughts and emotions most helpful. I loved your warm, honest, and knowledgeable delivery. I always thought I was ‘doing it wrong’ and am now I am less judgmental of my (mindfulness) practice. I would absolutely recommend the course to others, mindfulness now seems more achievable to me and it was a lovely way to practice self-care.”
Stephanie
Mother
“Stephanie is a brilliant teacher, kind, patient and knowledgable. She has great skill in teaching mindfulness; a skill that she clearly lives and breathes, because I came through her course with a greater respect for the art of living mindfully and some handy resources and exercises which I put into practice daily. I really enjoyed her classes, getting to know both the theory and practical aspects of mindfulness, and would recommend it to anyone wanting an antidote to the anxiety and worry that a busy life can sometimes cause. Thanks Steph!”
Marie
Receptionist
“I loved the practical mindful exercises. As I really felt an improvement on keeping calm with myself. Stephanie, you delivered the course in a very simple and caring way. I was always relaxed at the end (of each session). The Body Scan is helping me fall asleep, and the Anchor Drop I apply whenever I feel anxious. Thank you Stephanie.”
Fiona
“After completing the course I noticed many positive changes, especially in everyday tasks like eating, shopping, showering- if thoughts rushed in I would see my thoughts and be able to bring myself back to this moment. The main benefits I received from the course are that I now feel more present, I can catch my thoughts before they take over, and I experience deeper breathing. I would certainly recommend the course to others as it is something we can easily and simply integrate into our everyday lives which makes a huge change. Steph, your down to earth, caring, and gentle approach made it easy to understand and enjoyable.”
Sarah
Mental Health Support Worker

“Steph, I am so impressed with your thoughtful, interactive, and well explained subject matter on mindfulness. I felt the course was fantastic. You are warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable and you make people feel safe and at ease. After completing the program I am feeling happier, calmer, and more logical. I also feel I am more accepting that I have control over my reactions. Thank you.”

Felicity
Student
My biggest learning from the course was that it is possible to separate my thoughts to receive more clarity. I honestly thought it was fantastic: educational, engaging and not intense. (Steph) You were an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed the stress/anxiety content and also communication mindfulness.
Ann
Hotel Manager
I liked the fact that it was for women and I really appreciated being able to chat to Stephanie before the course. (Before the course) I was unsure as to exactly what Mindfulness was but after completing the course I completely understand the concept of Mindfulness and am learning to take the time out for one’s self. The 3 main benefits I received from completing the course were: 1) learning to take time to be Mindful on a regular basis 2) the Mindfulness exercises provided are enabling me to be Mindful and 3) I am becoming much less stressed which is enabling me to perform more efficiently and to enjoy life. I would highly recommend the course to others – because I found it to be most beneficial and enlightening.
