What is Mindfulness?

According to Jon Kabat-Zinn ,

"Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally."  

The benefits that can come from this practice include:

 

  • Recognise, slow down or stop automatic and habitual reactions.

  • Respond more effectively to complex or difficult situations.

  • See situations more clearly

  • Become more creative

  • Achieve 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.

​​

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 allows us to be fully present and engaged in both our life and work, leading to an improved quality of life.

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

The 8 Week MBCT Programme blends the ancient wisdom of Mindfulness with the evidence base of CBT and can be adopted by anyone from any walk of life.
