What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness ​is a way of paying attention: focussed, with purpose, staying in the present moment and withholding all judgment.

 

The benefits that can come from this practice include:

 

  • Recognising, slowing down or stopping automatic and habitual reactions,

  • Responding more effectively to complex or difficult situations,

  • Seeing situations more clearly,

  • Becoming more creative,

  • Achieving balance and resilience at work and at home.

Mindfulness helps us to focus and see clearly whatever is going on in our lives at any given point. It will not eliminate the pressures that we encounter in life, but can help us react in a calmer manner that can benefit us holistically. It helps us recognise regular and repeated patterns of thinking, often unconscious and make conscious decisions to change them.

What can Mindfulness help with?

There have been numerous research papers and projects since the 1970’s, supporting the practice of mindfulness.  It provides us with an evidence-based practice that helps give clarity of mind and understanding. 

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is endorsed by NICE for Depression sufferers and is also widely used in treating Stress and Anxiety.

 

How Mindfulness is delivered

The 8 Week MCBT Programme blends the ancient wisdom of Mindfulness with the evidence base of CBT. Sessions are taught within a group setting.

You will be shown a succession of Mindfulness practices, along with Cognitive Therapy tools that can readily be applied to many everyday situations.

If you are looking for an evidence based, daily practice that can be used to bring clarity and focus to your life then this could well be for you.

 

What to expect during your Mindfulness sessions

There is no need for any Mindfulness experience, as the emphasis is on progress rather than reaching any particular point quickly.

This programme has a strong experiential emphasise, with home practice guidance and review opportunties incorporated into every session.
