Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy
8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme, based on the original programme devised by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
MBCT combines traditional cognitive behavioural therapy with mindfulness and meditation. MBCT enables the participant to recognise and step out of automatic cognitive processes that can trigger stress, anxiety and depression. Participants recognise that certain thoughts and feelings are mentally destructive and are taught to allow the mind to move from automatic thought patterns to conscious emotional processing.
Scientific research supports the effectiveness of mindfulness for reducing depressive relapses, reducing cravings for substances people are addicted to, combating stress and being an effective tool for managing chronic pain and health conditions.
The MBCT programme takes place over 8 weeks. There is a weekly course and practice is done outside of the class with the use of MP3′s for regular meditation and techniques to integrate mindfulness into daily routines.
The next course will commence on February 23rd 7.00-8.30 pm at the Oxford Street Therapy Centre in Wellingborough, Northants. £160.00 each. Places are limited, early booking is advised.

Ever wish you could stop your mind from working overtime?
There are many types of meditation available but the one that really works for me is Mind Calm, devised by Sandy Newbigging, to such an extent I became a teacher of this method.
Rather than promising you peace of mind it helps you achieve peace with mind. Yes that's right, you don't need to try to stop your thoughts, not even during the time you spend meditating.
Instead Mind Calm teaches you ways to be at peace with whatever you are thinking or feeling at any given moment in time. A really practical form of meditation you can use anytime, anywhere; even with your eyes open.
If you have ever felt overwhelmed, unfulfilled and "there must be more to life than this" why not try a new strategy? Mind Calm can help you worry less, sleep better, improve relationships, live fully in the present moment and feel more calm, confident and content.
After being taught Mind Calm (either in a group, a one to one session or over Skype) you will have a good understanding of how your mind works, what impact your thoughts have on your physical health and emotional state and practical tools to integrate into your daily life to reconnect you to peace, love and happiness.

A one day workshop offering an introduction to Reiki and a Reiki I attunement. Perfect for self-development or for taking the first steps to becoming a Reiki practitioner.
A two day follow on to Reiki I. As well as being an important part of working on yourself this enables you to practice and charge clients for Reiki. This includes an introduction to the Reiki symbols and distance healing. Please note it is not essential to have undertaken Reiki I with us to do this workshop as long as a valid Reiki I certificate can be produced.
A two day course after which you can attune others to the beautiful Reiki energy. The remaining symbols will be introduced. As above it is not necessary to have completed Reiki I and II with us if valid certificates can be produced.
Introduction for Energy Healing
Energy healing is one of the most powerful complementary therapies that encompasses our mind, body and spirit.
Energy healers can utilise many healing modalities including colour, light, crystals and energy to balance the energy field that surrounds the human body, as well as the chakra system, in a non-invasive gentle way.
If you are interested in learning to work with energy, or are already a practicing therapist looking to add more tools to your toolbox this Introduction to Energy Healing one day workshop is perfect for you.
You will not only learn the theory behind energy but carry out practical exercises you can integrate into your lives and treatments to include how to check the chakras and healing with an array of methods including colour, light and essences.
NLP for Self Confidence
Do you feel something is restricting you from reaching your true potential but you are not quite sure what it is? Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour (programming). You will learn empowering techniques which will enable you to be the best that you can be.
Attain and Retain Peace
Inner peace is not the absence of emotion. Inner peace is obtained when you can be at peace with whatever emotion you are experiencing. You will leave this workshop with a valuable insight into how the mind and body are connected and what we can do to cultivate and live in peace. Participants will gain an excellent grounding in meditation and how to deal with everyday stress.
