With a Mindfulness programme you can learn a tool that helps you become more resilient in your busy life and helps you to be healthier at both work and home.

“Mindfulness has really helped me with my depression. Now, when the onslaught of depression starts, I can see it through a different lens. Mindfulness is unbelievable: you can really feel the difference, your heart rate slows down and the cortisol just drains away. Everyone is talking about it – neuroscientists, therapists – why wouldn’t you want to try it? It’s like finding the greatest elixir”    (Ruby Wax, TV Presenter, on Oxfordmindfulness.org web site)

What is Mindfulness?
Now approved by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) as a treatment for recurrent depression, Mindfulness is increasingly recommended for a whole host of psychological and physical conditions. It is particularly helpful in:
  • Stress management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic pain

Mindfulness practice can generate a healthier way of handling stress, to respond adaptively rather than automatically. Instead of helplessness or the fight-flight reaction to stress, moment to moment awareness allows control and influence to still be possible, even in stressful situations.

It can even reduce the rate of ageing and with consistent practice can actually rewire the brain into more positive and life-enhancing neural networks. 

Mindfulness is a form of mental training that can enable an individual to live a more grounded, balanced and therefore happier life.

Mindfulness is being present in the moment, with mind and body connected. It sounds so simple, but it can have far-reaching consequences, and often mind and body are so disconnected in the busy lives we lead.  

Mindfulness for You 
I can offer you a tailored programme which is based on the researched and proven Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) eight week programme. This could be based on meeting once a week, or every two weeks, or even once a month.
