Integrated Health Care
At Calderwood Family Clinic we believe that mindfulness based training and practices can provide us with skills and tools to look after our mental health.
We live in a busy world, we live in a global connected fast paced world which is enriching but can be mentally and emotionally exhausting. In our clinic we provide the MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) courses run by Mr Paddy Gowan. These courses help us practice how to slow the mind down.
