"A little something from me to say thank you. You are a very special lady and words cannot express the gratitude that I have that you came into my life. Mrs C you really have been my anchor and mindfulness is part of my life now and forever. Thank you". Pam xxx March 2017
"The location and atmosphere were perfect for meditation and the small group setting meant we were able to openly share our life experiences together (without pressure). There were lots of cathartic and revelatory moments. Overall, I've not been so relaxed in years and feel I can readily begin to apply the techniques we were taught, in order to experience a more relaxing and rewarding life." John Castle, Medical Student

"A dear friend of mine, starting her own venture. Having spent countless hours with her, just being in her presence can lift your mood and ease your mind. Being in my job, I know how important a healthy emotional state is to our whole body. I would recommend some Jackie time to everyone! The retreat is within her own home, which is like being in a whole other world as soon as you enter. It's just magical". Laura Robinson-Hurst, massage and healing therapist
"A wise and compassionate friend of mine is running this course in a beautiful natural setting. Highly recommended". Denise Baldock, mindfulness teacher and therapist
"Amazing place. So peaceful, and a great place to reflect and relax." Ben Shallow, client
"I started on the 8 week MBSR course 4 months ago, and haven't looked back! It has turned my life around completely, and a new future is waiting."
"It helped me realise my worth, compassion and made me stronger to deal with everyday issues as well as deep rooted ones from my past. All sessions are held in Jackie's home, which is very peaceful and beautiful - the perfect place for meditation and Retreats. Mindfulness has brought me to a wonderful place, and I have the strength and confidence to stop taking pills for depression, stand up to my bosses for better pay and conditions, and now a better job and future - all this I could not have done before Mindfulness.
I practise Mindfulness everyday, meditate everyday, doing ordinary daily jobs 'Mindfully', it is so calming, and nobody knows you are even doing it! It's all about the 'breath', and in times of irritation, frustration or even temper, I just 'breath' be kind to myself, and can cope with anything! I would say, give it a go, you have nothing to loose, and a whole new you to gain!"
Louise Pickford, Hampshire.
