Mindfulness Courses


Making Sense of Mindfulness

This is a 2 hour, introductory  workshop where you will learn more about what Mindfulness is and what it isn’t. Mindfulness is increasingly talked about in the public arena often without clear descriptions of how it can be helpful. As well as hearing about how mindfulness came to be incorporated into healthcare services in the UK to help people with depression, stress and anxiety, you will experience a guided meditation practice. This workshop is a useful introduction before deciding whether or not you want to commit to a longer course such as the 8 week course (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course) which is designed by experts to help people to stay well following episodes of depression and/or anxiety.

Course date: 8th Dec 2017

Mindfulness Course (MBCT)

The course consists of 8 x 2 hour sessions, each with its own theme and guided mindfulness meditation practices. There is ample opportunity to discuss experiences of practice so whilst it is not a therapy group, the shared experience can lend to members being supportive of each other. There is an invitation to complete the home practice for 6 out of 7 days in the week following the session, but should a session be missed, then all materials will be provided with guidance from the teacher. The size of the group is purposely kept small (maximum of 10 participants) to ensure that there is sufficient time to work through the practices and the materials. In between sessions, participants are able to contact the teacher for any additional support.

Course starts 19th Jan 2018
