An efficient social policy is based on solidarity and the protection of human rights. Social assistance is necessary where people are not able to meet their basic needs by their own efforts. Public responsibility and solidarity-based financing for modern and effective social and healthcare services are particular features of the European social model.

The purpose of this hearing is to set out principles for public responsibility for effective and reliable welfare provision systems in Europe. The hearing will look at the political and legal conditions needed at EU level in order to maintain and develop effective social benefit systems.
It will, in particular, look into
  1. the role of the European Union,
  2. the roles of the state, the local authorities and the service providers;
  3. the groups of users;
  4. the relationship between money transfer and service provision; and
  5. the accessibility and quality of services.
Invited to discuss these topics are the European Commission, the Social Protection Committee, the European social partners, representatives of welfare and social organisations and researchers.
Where: EESC – Rue Belliard, 99 – room JDE 62
When: 22 June 2015, 9.30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Une politique sociale compétente repose sur la solidarité et la protection des droits de l'homme. L'aide sociale est nécessaire quand les gens ne sont pas en mesure de satisfaire leurs besoins fondamentaux par leurs propres efforts. La responsabilité publique et le financement solidaire pour des services sociaux et de santé modernes et efficaces sont des caractéristiques particulières du modèle social européen.

Le but de cette audition est d'établir des principes de responsabilité publique pour les systèmes de prestations sociales efficaces et fiables en Europe. L'audition portera sur les conditions politiques et juridiques nécessaires au niveau de l'UE pour maintenir et développer des systèmes efficaces de prestations sociales.
Elle se penchera en particulier sur
  1. le rôle de l'Union européenne;
  2. les rôles de l'Etat, des autorités locales et des prestataires de services;
  3. les groupes d'utilisateurs;
  4. la relation entre le transfert d'argent et la fourniture de services et
  5. l'accessibilité et la qualité des services.
Invités à discuter de ces sujets sont la Commission européenne, le Comité de Protection Sociale, les partenaires sociaux européens, représentants des services sociaux, les organisations sociales et les chercheurs.
Où : CESE - Rue Belliard, 99 - Salle JDE 62
Quand : le 22 Juin 2015, 9h30-13h00

Hi Ionela! 

"I'm angry. 

I'm really angry. It's just not fair. And it's hard. I mean really, REALLY hard. I feel stuck. And I just don't know what I should do next." 

As a long-time therapist, I hear these words of frustration from clients weekly. Whether it be in response to the behaviour of a boss, overload at work, looming potential redundancy fears, communication breakdowns with their partner, or other life situations that seem beyond their control. 

One option when we feel stuck or confused is to take advantage of "talking therapies" such as counselling, coaching, NLP or hypnotherapy. These approaches have the same intentions: to generate learning, insight and actionable outcomes to overcome a current challenge. Book a one-hour session to see if that approach would be right to get you unstuck.

Another option is to explore Mindfulness Mediation. Effectively, mindfulness & mediation combined with the Buddhist values-based principles you learn, help generate insight and wisdom. You get to know yourself better. It's really a kind of self-therapy. Join the next Mindfulness Meditation Course (and understand how mindfulness is actually different from meditation). Dates below. Or there's still space on next weekend's Mindfulness Retreat for a fast track to transformation. 

Both methods (individual and group) are designed to help you stay on track with creating a more values-oriented, authentic life.

If you've been wanting to make some changes, now is as good a time as ever.

One of our team texted me this child's view of mindfulness and dealing with intense emotions. Kids are amazing with explaining things ... see if you can relate this ...!!

Hypnobirthing Course

Helping women and their birthing partners to give birth confidently, and in control using breathing, relaxation, hypnosis and mindfulness. 


The ideal time to do a hypnobirthing class is between 25 and 36 weeks, this gives you time to practice and get to grips with the techniques. We teach people right up to 39 weeks, so don't think that you are too late to do a hypnobirthing class if you are over 36 weeks.  Rest assured that it will make a difference, and can be a lightbulb moment which changes the way you think about birth.

Training is facilitated by a qualified Mindful Mamma Hypnobirthing Teacher. The class costs £175 per couple. This includes class handouts and MP3s and the Mindful Hypnobirthing book, which will be posted to you on booking your place. 

July: Wednesday 22 & 29 July 6.45pm - 9.30pm (2 sessions) at W12 7JD
