Mindfulness for health and wellbeing
Based in Bolton, Lancashire, we provide Mindfulness courses for individuals, who wish to manage stress and for those who wish to manage chronic pain and illness.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a technique that teaches you become present-moment focussed. This enables you to better manage the challenges of life, for example a stressful job, a difficult relationship, a health condition, or simply juggling many demands on your time. With regular practice it can make a significant improvement to your quality of life.
Mindfulness works by changing the way you react to experiences in your life. You might not be able to change your boss or your illness, but through mindfulness practice you can change your response to them, and, through that, the negative impact they have on your life
How can I learn it?
As when learning any new skill, the more you practise mindfulness, the more effective it becomes. That is why we offer 8-week training courses – either on a 1-2-1 basis or in a group. The 1-2-1 sessions can be provided in person, or via Skype.
As well as training your mind, you will learn how to pay attention to your body, and to the world around you. By the time your course finishes you will have already started to weave a range of mindfulness techniques into your daily life. And you will be seeing enough positive changes in your life to realise there is a huge benefit to continuing your mindfulness practice.
You might find that stress is no longer controlling your life, or that you are becoming better at managing the physical and psychological impact of having a health condition. Perhaps your concentration and focus at work has improved, or you notice yourself becoming more resilient to the challenges each day throws at you.
You can refresh your practice regularly at our mindfulness refresher days. These offer a great opportunity to remind yourself of the key techniques, and to learn from others’ experience of using mindfulness to improve their life.
You can also choose additional 1-to-1 mindfulness sessions, if you want help working through a particular issue where you are struggling to apply your mindfulness techniques.
