What is it?
Do you find there’s often this background of worry in your mind? You haven’t done something you ought to have done or done something you shouldn’t, things would be better if you were cleverer, fitter, more organised or thoughtful? You might spend a lot of time mulling over things that have either already taken place or may happen in the future? These are examples of being Mindful and are often wrapped up in unhelpful patterns of how you think about yourself and the world. It’s sometimes called ruminating; you’re thinking but not really getting anywhere and it can become a habit.
Mindfulness is one way to try and break these habits. It’s based around the concept of meditation and is recognised by Doctors, business professionals, artists and sports people as a method for addressing stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain, as well as enhancing creativity and resilience.
Who is it for?
Mindfulness is for anyone, members of the public, partners, groups and work teams. It is probably more suitable for people over the age of 18yrs, although we are happy to discuss the approach for younger people on an individual basis.
What to expect
During a Mindfulness course you’ll be taught methods to help you stay present, more engaged with what you’re actually doing, responding to things as they happen rather than with habitual patterns of behaviour or knee-jerk reactions. The concepts are quite simple but results can be far-reaching. You may find a Mindfulness quite challenging but equally rewarding and the effects long-lasting.
