Mindfulness based stress reduction MBSR
This evidenced based 8 week stress reduction programme is increasingly popular for stress management and its close cousin the MBCT is recommended by NICE for treatment of anxiety and depression.
We live in a busy, fast paced world, which can, at times, feel pressured or overwhelming.
This 8 week course guides you through the principles of mindfulness and teaches you stress reduction tools and techniques that you can take forward into the next phase of your lives.
Held over 8 consecutive evenings, this course is suitable for people who have little or no current mindfulness or meditation practise as well as those more experienced looking to support their current practise. Participants must commit to the whole course.
Applicants will be given an informal free telephone assessment session to help determine suitability at this time, and to answer any of your questions.
Group sizes will be no larger than 10, if you are concerned about being in a group, we can discuss this, as there are many benefits to attending as part of a group process. Alternatively, one to one 8 week courses are available on request in instances of sever social anxiety. Tania is also available for individual counselling or CBT sessions.
