Home » Practical Information


Courses are given in English and consist of  8 weekly sessions of 2.5 hours and an additional all day session for MBSR. MBCP trainings have a similar format and include a post-birth reunion. Workshops are either stand alone or presented in series such as Preparing for Birth Together & Self-Compassion. On top of this I offer regular meditation evenings as well as FREE nature walks and FREE monthly meet-ups to support expecting parents.

The cost of the mindfulness-based stress reduction training is €550 per person (including VAT/BTW) if you are paying for this training yourself. 

The cost of the 8-week pregnancy and childbirth mindfulness training is €550 per couple or €500 per person without birthing partner (including VAT/BTW). If you each have coverage for mindfulness, the course is mostly fully covered.


Most health insurances nowadays cover part or all of the cost of mindfulness courses, especially in the event that you have more than a basic package. Even with a basic package, if you are suffering from a stress-related complaint or burn-out this may be covered. Please check this with your insurance policy. Note that I am a VMBN certified trainer (category 1 being the highest status which is recognised by all insurers). Furthermore, it is possible that the cost of the training is partly or fully-covered by your employer if there is a budget allocated to courses relating to both personal and professional development. Always worth asking as more and more companies are supportive of mindfulness training.)


Contact me to set up an orientational chat and/or an intake to find out more about the course and what to expect. The intake can be over the phone/Skype or in person depending on your needs and preference.
