Audio resources for mindfulness

A series of mindfulness, mindful movement and self-compassion audio guides have been produced by clinical psychology, primarily to support the 8-week mindfulness course run at the Royal Derby Hospital for patients with cancer.

These resources can help manage low mood, insomnia, to help relax, and to improve wellbeing though the process of guided meditation.

A self-help booklet to accompany the 8-week mindfulness course is also available on request. Please telephone: 01332 7 88798

These resources are not be used as teaching resources, without prior agreement.
