Relaxation and Mindfullness

Being worried and anxious can often result in us feeling tense and overwhelmed. By focusing on our breathing and using a variety of relaxation techniques we can encourage our muscles to relax and help our mind to unwind.

Relaxation is a useful skill to learn and the more you practice the easier and more effective you will find it.

Take time for yourself and join our Occupational Therapist in these short guided imagery (visualisation) sessions.
