Mindfulness for Veterans
Sue has a particular interest in delivering mindfulness-based stress reduction courses to military and ex-military personnel. Having served in the Royal Navy herself, Sue has an understanding of the military mindset and what can be asked of an individual who signs up.
It is generally accepted that many veterans bring a variety of chronic medical conditions as well as the life stress associated with dealing with these conditions to their mindfulness course. They may also come to a mindfulness group with very heavy mental health burdens, including significant symptoms of depression and PTSD. However, these do not necessarily preclude participation in a course. Many do go on to participate in a 8-week course and benefit from it.
If you run a group for veterans and would be interested in starting with an orientation session about mindfulness or would just like an informal chat, please contact me here.
