"Mindfulness has helped depression and anxiety"

About: Chilwell Children's Centre

(as a service user),

I took part In a mindfulness course through Central college at chilwell children's Centre for five weeks.

During this time I have learnt of ways and techniques of dealing with my anxiety and depression through mindfulness. I really found this course beneficial and has really helped with my self esteem as well.

I have been using the things I have learnt from this experience to help me in different areas of my life and I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this course through sure-start they really do have some amazing courses running and provide the crèche for the children which really helps when you have no childcare.

I am really impressed with everything and give it a ten out of ten: )

Hi Shiv2015,

I'm sure with services we are planning these experiences will be positive and benefit you in a similar way to the mindfulness course and I hope you will let us have comments about how courses or activities you and your child participate in have been useful.

Thanks

Steve
