The Course

Mindfulness practices have been proven to be effective in reducing the suffering and stress that is associated with chronic pain and long-term illness.

When lifelong conditions are diagnosed it is not  uncommon to be told you must

"learn to live with it"

which begs the question

"who is going to teach me that?"


This 8 week Breathworks Mindfulness for Health course will teach you the skills of mindfulness and compassion to help you cope with your chronic health condition. 

Reduce your pain and suffering and rediscover your love for life.

The course has already been delivered to tens of thousands of people worldwide and has been found in clinical trials to be beneficial.


The course can help with conditions such as chronic back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, post-operative pain, those living with cancer, neurological disorders, MS, Parkinson's disease, other types of non-specific pain, and many other chronic health problems.

Mindfulness is now recommended by specialist pain management clinics in the UK.

  • Breath and body awareness can support you to bring compassion to your experience of physical, mental and emotional pain
  • Mindfulness in daily life can help you to pace yourself, so you can do more of what you love
  • Mindful movements can support mindfulness in daily life
  • Mindfulness and compassion can radically change your experience of pain
  • The simple pleasures of life can bring you joy, even in the midst of suffering
