Some feedback from Carers who joined the previous sessions has been:

“I felt inspired to try new approaches to photography and to look at myself and ways I can care for myself and others. Mindful photography gives my mind a break from the often stressful and demanding role of caring for someone with a long term head injury. It allows me to relax and take time to do something, which is completely different. I found the course relaxing and looked forward to it each week. I felt especially drawn to nature… looking closer and noticing things that I have been too busy to see. It felt like much needed time off just for me doing something I enjoyed and learning a new way of looking at everyday things. Caring can be quite lonely and it was also helpful to meet other carers on the course. and it gave chance to talk a little about our own caring situations. Mindful photography will continue to be something I will make time for after the course. It will help my mental health and I will try to take short breaks when I can to practice.” Sue Trickey

“I joined course as interested in photography especially its use in nature.  I’ve also been practising mindfulness for a few months and found it useful in terms of my own mental wellbeing. The course has helped to expand my awareness of what I see and appreciate, for example, colours and textiles and to help with photography techniques. I’ve learned greater awareness and appreciation of the environment and allowing the time to practise this.” Jan

“The course has been great and I’ve definitely benefitted from it. I’ve looked forward to it every week, even my husband picked up on this! I have been very stressed since having my disabled daughter 28 years ago. I find the photography great as I can do it myself whenever I want.  It takes me out of myself and makes me take a step back and slow down.  I’ve always loved nature but the course has made me realise that I need to be out in nature more often to help me relax.  Looking at nature through a lens does slow me down. I’m usually in a rush which isn’t good. I honestly had little interest in photography before, never giving it the time, but I’m now converted.” MJ
