Mindfulness-training

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness techniques can be very helpful in dealing with stress and can help reduce negative thinking. The techniques can also help you improve your focus, concentration and thinking skills. You will be learning a more accepting and compassionate way to look at your thoughts and feelings.

Content

During the course, you will learn how to develop mindfulness through meditation. Mindfulness means being aware of what is happening in your experience - in your mind and your body. This helps you to take better care of yourself.

The course also draws on ideas from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help you challenge negative thinking. In 6 to 8 sessions you will learn various mindfulness techniques. We will ask you to practice the techniques on a daily basis.
