Item Description:

Mindfulness Based Approaches – MBCT/MBSR

What is Mindfulness?

Though many of us want to slow down and experience greater calm and ease, we often find that doing this is not so easy. Mindfulness is a simple practice that connects us to our natural sense of presence. Learning and practicing mindfulness helps us come to our senses in a very real way and live more fully in the present moment.

The Benefits of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an age old practice but it is only in recent decades that Medicine and Science have come to recognise the capacity of mindfulness to enhance the quality of people’s lives, particularly, though by no means exclusively, in the areas of stress reduction and pain management, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorders and panic attacks.

To date tens of thousands of people have taken mindfulness courses in one of the hundreds of Mindfulness programmes currently available around the world. Two decades of published research give evidence that the majority of people who have undertaken and completed Mindfulness courses have benefitted psychologically and physically.


This course combines the essential elements of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.  The participants are taught to observe their habitual, automatic and unhelpful cognitive reactions while at the same time learning to interact with their thoughts and emotions in a less judgemental and more compassionate manner. The aim of the course is to help participants engage with themselves, and their thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations in a way that promotes psychological flexibility and overall wellbeing.

Who might benefit from the course?

The course is of benefit to anyone who would like to experience:
1.  Increased psychological and physical well-being
2.  Greater energy and satisfaction with life
3.  An ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations
4.  An increased ability to relax and experience calm
5.  A greater capacity for curiosity
6.  Enhanced interpersonal relationships
7.  Decreased probability of relapse into periods of low or anxious moods
8.  Lower levels of emotional distress, rumination, impulsive and self-destructive thoughts
9.  Reduced levels of stress
10.  A greater capacity to respond rather than react to life’s challenges
