About New Forest Mindfulness
New Forest Mindfulness is a mindfulness and psychological therapies centre set-up by a local Clinical Psychologist and Mindfulness Teacher/Trainer, Dr Maret Dymond-Bassett to promote personal, family and community well-being.
Based in Brockenhurst, New Forest, Hampshire, our intention is to enable adults, children and families to maximise their well-being and develop the life skills that will enable them to thrive, not just survive, in everyday life.
Maret and the team, which also includes a Centre Coordinator, a Specialist Child and Young Person's Psychologist, a Psychotherapist, and a GP, have many years of experience and expertise in the fields of mindfulness, mental and physical health and wellbeing.
We provide mindfulness meditation courses/classes and taster sessions for beginners as well as advanced courses, and practice days and a sitting group for those who already have a mindfulness practice and wish to deepen their understanding.
As well as mindfulness we also provide clinical psychology services/psychological therapy, working from a range of mind and body approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), Narrative Therapy and Systemic/Family Therapy.
Our aim is to offer a personalised service for individuals and families based upon your needs, wishes and interests.
We work with people and families experiencing a variety of difficulties and / or life challenges, ranging from life events, stress, low mood and times of transition to clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety and psychosis.
We also value forming partnerships with schools and other local organisations, offering our services to their staff / students in order to support communities to build compassionate and productive cultures together.
In addition, we provide training and supervision for professionals in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting.
