Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy/

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Both MBSR and MBCT are suitable for supporting your wellbeing and improving your quality of life. Whilst MBCT has been developed for helping to prevent relapse into anxiety, low mood and depression, it is suitable for general public and non clinical use.  MBSR is more focused on reducing stress. I will make adaptations as necessary to the emphasis in order to respond to the needs of the group.

8 x 2 hour sessions (9 with Orientation).

£160/£80 Concessions

 

Mindfulness Based Compassionate Living

This is an 8 week course designed to help participants cultivate a sense of self compassion. Self Compassion has been shown to have a strong correlation with increased wellbeing, as well as decreased anxiety and depression. It is recommended as a follow on  for people who have done the 8 week course, as working with self compassion practices can be emotionally challenging, and it helps if participants have an established mindfulness practice.

8 x 2 hour sessions (9 with Orientation).

Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)

This 8 week course has a similar structure to MBCT and MBSR, but it is adapted for participants who are in recovery from Substance Misuse. MBRP practices are designed to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and the “automatic” reactions that often seem to control our lives. Using the practices we learn to pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of options in front of us in every moment. Ultimately we learn to respond in ways that serve us rather than react in ways that are detrimental to our health and happiness.

This course is suitable for those who are steady in their recovery from problematic alcohol or drug use, and who are not currently physically dependant on substances

8 x 2 hour sessions (9 with Orientation).
