"I met a wonderful mindfulness teacher called Frances on Suga

I'm so grateful to have shared these skills with many people - here's a small selection of reviews I've been given via my feedback forms, available to see in hand written form on request. A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time provide reviews, I'm sorry I dont have space to list them all! Big love, Frances xxx

Thank you so much for an amazing course. 

Meeting you has transformed my life and for that I’m truly grateful.

I can see that meditation and mindfulness are making a difference in my outlook and mood and I feel the training has given me some incredibly useful tools to stay positive and live my life to the full. It was exactly what I needed. Iain  

"The course has shifted my perspective on life in the best way possible. 

Realising that I can be separate to my thoughts; which are often very damaging has helped me in every aspect of my life. I sleep better, I worry less overall, I value myself more, I have forgiven myself and I see what is important."


Brilliant. Life Changing. It helped me find calm at a very challenging time in my life.  

Do it before you need it for more 'big stuff'! Rather than ask 'why now' ask 'why not'?



"The most positive thing I have done for myself for as long as I can remember. 

The course has helped me recognise that the major part of my life is wonderful and given me the tools to manage the part of my life that has been having a seriously negative effect. I can now sleep!" Sue 

 I was not sure before I signed up but can completely say it has changed my whole outlook on life. Yes, I still get stress but my mind seems freer. I seem to be living to the full. I will always be grateful I have learnt to have more fun and live for the here and now. Thank You - it is the best money that I have spent in a long while! Caro 


Possibly one of the most enjoyable and useful learning experiences. It has centred my belief in myself and to listen to myself and let judgements from others go. I genuinely feel the joyful moments of life. It has helped me keep perspective and focus better on work, life and solutions. Thank you Frances. This is a great course for anyone, regardless of their circumstances. Michelle 


Without sounding cheesy I feel like a new person, it has changed my perspective on many things which I had lost the ability of seeing. Thank you, it was perfect, I loved it. Do it! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Take that step! Steph  

Do this course, even if you think it is a stressful time for you and you can't fit it in, it is so worthwhile and you will feel the benefits. It has helped me to be calmer in stressful situations and to be better at responding rather than reacting. I have been noticing beautiful things and acknowledging beautiful moments more. I felt the format worked really well and the sessions being part of a group were very positive and the follow up session emails were helpful and supportive. Diana  

 BRILLIANT!!! A real discovery of a new way of being! I feel armed with a range of good tools to deal with life's challenges. Take a leap of faith - do the course, you wont regret it - it's a real revelation - very freeing!! Definitely made me less anxious and tense. Far more aware of myself and really opened my eyes. Thank you so much Frances. Alan   

 Enlightening! I worried that I would do the course and feel the same at the end that I did at the start, but I don't! I feel much more relaxed, less stressed & calmer about most situations which I didn't think was possible. Thank you x practice, practice, practice! It's worth the work as the results are great. It has made me so much calmer. Kathryn​     

The course has helped me with a general sense of happiness, seeing the roses and a determination to be present for my kids. Thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile. Feels like an investment in your mind/wellbeing which is just as important as exercise or diet for your body/health. Lot's of good anecdotes and ideas and very user-friendly. A really useful tool to help live life fully. Would absolutely recommend. Caroline

 Advice for people considering the course: It's not scary! Take a chance and invest a a few hours in yourself - you wont be disappointed and it will most certainly improve your life! Thank you Frances! 


I have found this course to the superb - In particular Frances' teaching has been both enlightening and inspiring. Thank you so much Frances! This course has helped me be more naturally 'in the moment' and count my blessings, especially when my inner voice is constantly wanting more. Dawn  

I found this course fantastic. 

It really helped me take control of my thoughts from the first session and feel happier and calmer day to day




 I really enjoyed it, and am very thankful to you Frances for showing me a better way of living.

Really great - so enjoyed it + so helpful. 

Meditation tracks are lovely and the discussion each week has really helped put them into context. 

The follow up emails each week were really helpful in reminding me what i'd done and focus for the week. Sara  

 Wonderful. It is exactly what I needed and has made me aware of quite how much I needed the mindfulness tools! 

They are changing my life every day. A lovely side effect is meeting like-minded people across generations. Very warm and safe environment. I loved it and looked forward to coming every week, I will miss it! Thank you Frances. Eva  

Wonderfully refreshing. 

You have passed on great insight in a short space of time. It has been great watching us all grow and develop by sharing in your skill and wisdom. 

Thank you. Della  

 The course has been very useful; there are just so many benefits. 

It has enabled me to identify the things that stress me out and recognise that it is my reaction that causes the stress. Mike  

Excellent, very informative and enjoyable, 

I would come every week! 

For people considering the course - go for it! You will feel the benefits and have tools for life to help in difficult times. Nicola  

 I wanted to get in contact & let you know... 

I am still practising, and benefitting every day from, the mindfulness that you taught me over a year ago. Thanks so much for that. Kelv  

I gained a huge amount from Frances' mindfulness course. Very quickly I felt happier in my everyday life. I am more able to take things as they come rather than worrying about all the things I should be doing. 

The meditation exercises also helped me to identify some mental baggage that I've been carrying around for years and begin to let it go. Frances is very knowledgeable and passionate about mindfulness and the course covered a lot of ground. She's also down to earth and made me feel completely at ease. I shall definitely use what I have learnt and keep on meditating.    

Really insightful, fascinating and met all expectations in terms of refocussing my life. 

Very enjoyable, great delivery and tone. Just do it, you wont regret it, it might change your life. Sue  





Fantastic! Really, really helpful. I loved everything from the chilled environment to the meditating session. I initially thought it would be great for stress relief but its as much about getting joy out of life, which is more beneficial. 





            and extremely interesting. 


Frances you have made it a lot more appealing and easier to work on and with. I have found and been introduced to a great many tools that I hope will allow me to grow.

I have found it very helpful. 

I have enjoyed the experience.  


Very helpful

Having suffered two bereavements the course has helped me to deal with the stress, anxiety and emotional pain that I have been suffering. 

I have really enjoyed the meditation. 

Thanks, it has helped me immensely 


A brilliant 'chimney-sweep' of the mind!


I love the concept of 'beginners mind' - it's possible to reinvent yourself every day. Everyone can benefit from being a little calmer and happier - especially mums with their influence on children.  


Extremely beneficial and enlightening. Meditation and mindfulness can be a life changer! 

Anyone would benefit from this - please don't think it is for Zen monks only!
