Breathworks' mission is to help people living with pain, stress and illness to lead happier, healthier lives. We are internationally recognised leaders in Mindfulness Based Pain Management (MBPM), providing Mindfulness for Health and Mindfulness for Stress programmes. Breathworks is a 'not for profit' social enterprise, registered in England and Wales with Companies House and the Community Interest Company Regulator.
Every £1 invested in Breathworks courses produces savings of at least £5.76 in reduced costs to health and other public service needs, employer costs and increased community contributions.
Breathworks have been delivering mindfulness programmes since 2001.
We have delivered successful contracts for a range of public sector organisations, including:
- Department of Health (in Whitehall and Leeds)

Breathworks CIC is a pioneering organisation established in 2001 that works to increase practical ‘acceptance based’ methods for people experiencing stress, pain or illness summarised in their development of mindfulness courses. Breathworks aims to relieve suffering and increase control through directly teaching mindfulness to participants in need of support, and also through training practitioners and running courses within health and social care organisations.
