Come and join us for an evening with Canon Dr Bill Merrington (CPsychol), as he reflects on using mindfulness in a therapeutic context.

Bill will provide an explanation for the benefits of mindfulness and how he has modified the approach he uses in therapy.

There will also be time for practising mindfulness, progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) and other therapeutic techniques.

Prior to the talk and following it, we will provide refreshments to give you the opportunity to discuss the talk informally with Bill and for networking with the Dorset Hub committee and other attendees.
