Terms & Conditions

The intention of Discovering Mindfulness (website, classes, courses and workshops) is to provide training, coaching, feedback and support in the practice of mindfulness. The services are suitable for adults over the age of 18 years. The services provided are for educational purposes only and are not diagnostic, prescriptive or treatment for specific physical or psychological conditions.

Before signing up to classes/courses/workshops
While the practices of mindfulness are accessible to everyone, there are times when it may not be appropriate to avail of the services of Discovering Mindfulness. For example , classes/courses/workshops may not be suitable for those experiencing acute trauma or severe mental distress or physical ill-health. The practice invites people to turn towards all aspects of our experience. For some people this may trigger anxiety, depressive, dissociative episodes or trauma flashbacks. Please consult with your General Practitioner/Therapist to advise on the appropriateness of undertaking training in mindfulness at this time in your life. Please also advise Discovering Mindfulness in advance if you are suffering any physical ill-health and of any previous experience of mental ill-health, such as anxiety/depression/trauma/psychosis.

For longer courses, a short pre-course interview is completed in person or by telephone before a place is confirmed. All information provided in this context is held in the strictest of confidence (See Privacy Policy) and is gathered purely for the purpose of ensuring that we can work safely together. By signing up to the services, participants agree to work within their own capacities and to consult their General Practitioners about any concerns of pain and discomfort, physical and mental, that may arise in that time. Participants accept that Sheena Burke/Discovering Mindfulness and the location of the service are not responsible for any loss, damage or injuries.

Booking and Cancellation
By booking a place on class/course/workshop, you are confirming that you are over 18 years of age. Places are confirmed on courses and workshops on receipt of full payment or a non-refundable deposit. Cancellations lessĀ than 7 days before the course start dateĀ are not refunded but may be transferred to a subsequent course/workshop. If the cost of the subsequent course is greater than the original fee paid, participants are liable to pay this excess. If transferring to a class/course/workshop that costs less, the difference is not refunded. In the event of cancellations of courses/workshops by Discovering Mindfulness, all money paid will be refunded.
