My life has changed since joining stages in ways that can only be described as Amazing !! .I have been house bound socially awkward as a result of anxiety and depression couldn’t cope with exposure to new people or crowded areas. Through reading a testimony on a media sight I plucked the courage to email and find out what the idea of mindfulness and who would be in the group etc.
My group was in an evening and with it being winter months,despite my anxious arousal exceptionally high I turned up at the group I was warmly met by the facilitators’ (Louise and Tim). I struggled hugely the first evening however muddled to the end .Each week coming home with literature and meditation links I after a while really became part of my day ,a survival kit just for me ! I now manage school drop off, shopping and more importantly improve my friendship bond I have established with members of my group.
