The next six week introduction to mindfulness group for carers is beginning on Monday 27th January, 7pm – 8pm. Mindfulness aims to help people become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and body sensations so that instead of being overwhelmed by them they are better able to manage them.
Topics covered include explaining mindfulness, the benefits of slowing down, acceptance, self compassion and anxiety. Opportunities to discuss the challenges you may be experiencing are also facilitated.

The group will be held in Mallow Primary Healthcare Centre . For more information or to reserve a place, contact Christine O’Riordan (Family Support Worker) on 086 0255205 or email
The cost for this group is €50 for the six weeks though this fee is negotiable. Multiple resources (including a book) will be provided.
