This is a free, flexible programme for people in the Hyndburn Borough with long covid. Designed to help you manage your long covid symptoms more effectively. Learn to listen to your body and slow down and accept your recovery journey.
Attend a weekly peer support group via zoom from the comfort of your home. You will also have lifetime access to guided videos, and relaxing audios to help your body systems to recover at their own pace.
if you’ve had long covid, like me, you’ll know about the overwhelming tiredness, the headaches, lack of sleep, panic attacks and many other symptoms, that can seem unexpected, that come with this virus. It isn’t a 12 week experience for many.
People who have been on the course found the experiences of other people who’ve also had longcovid very useful.
And then, of course, there’s the physical and emotional benefits too.
I’ve experienced the positive effects from taking this programme, as have others, which is why I honed and refined it to share the benefits and help you.
If you are suffering from Long-Covid but are located outside of the Hyndburn area, then please get in to touch to see how we can help you.

I contracted the COVID-19 virus in March 2020, fortunately I am now fully recovered. I did struggle with many long-term symptoms that affected my health for most of last year.
I was very fortunate in being a trained therapist and meditation expert, I developed my own relaxation practices to support the multiple body systems.
It’s not a quick fix – it’s not intended to be – but it does give relief and hope and an opportunity to be with others who understand you. (No medical advice is given, note our disclaimer on the website).

Alongside having experienced Covid 19, and knowing first-hand how it side-swipes you, your life and the ‘normal’ you, I have various other qualifications.
In my 20 years of experience in work, I’ve spent five years designing and running meditation groups, I’ve also been a therapist and worked in education for adult health and social care.
I set up the CIC, Brain Health Breakthrough, in 2018 and work as tirelessly as I can to help people who’ve had a brain injury enjoy life. Sometimes that’s with work experience, sometimes that’s coping with the impact a brain injury has.
I extended this work to help unpaid carers as they also experience issues that meditation can successfully treat. During this time I contracted Covid, and have been investigating how to manage this ever since; honing the meditations and approach to create the 8 week course you see here.

You might be surprised to know..
I have a BA Hons in Education and Professional Development – in terms of why that is relevant, I know about the best ways to learn and teach.
I’m also pretty savvy and results-focused. This is about impact and results for me, not something ‘nice and fluffy’ – it has to work.
