Having the right skills to manage stress is crucial to good health and living well. Mindfulness for Living is a group course that teaches Mindfulness and other skills to manage stress and difficult situations.

Mindfulness for Living

Mindfulness for Living draws on MiCBT (Mindfulness-integrated-Cognitive Behaviour Therapy). It is for people experiencing serious or average stress.

Most people experience stress in their life. This is quite normal. Some stress is good as it motivates us to action and we get things done. But too much stress or the wrong kind of stress is very unhealthy and can lead to all kinds of physical illnesses and thinking disorders.

Conditions, like addictions, anxiety, depression, phobia and trauma are stress-based. Mindfulness practice is a drug-free way to manage and overcome them.

Mindfulness for Living is delivered in eight weekly 2-hour sessions. Each week, you learn new Mindfulness and other self-management skills, like assertiveness, communication and managing difficult situations and people.

Learning in a group gives you encouragement and support. Hearing about others’  progress helps keep you motivated and on track. You have a brief pre-course interview and a 1-1 session during the course so you can talk over your problems in more depth. There are assessments, 2 CDs or on-line recordings and notes to chart and guide your practice. You can arrange more 1-1 sessions during or following the course if you need extra help or support. Your commitment is to attend all sessions and to carry out your practice of Mindfulness meditation twice daily for 30-miutes during the course and carry out weekly activities. Keeping up your practice afterwards will ensure that you don’t relapse.

 Mindfulness for Living is for people who want to manage stress and reactivity. It will help people with addictions, anxiety, fears, phobias and more.

You don’t have to be suffering from a serious condition to benefit. You will better manage the stresses everyday of life. You will be able to handle difficult situations as they arise. You will gain valuable skills and feel so much better.
