Mindfulness offers an opportunity to overcome negative thought patterns and be less self-critical. Mindfulness has been seen to help people with anxiety, stress and depression and offers a new way of managing the realities of day-to-day life.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
Who is this course for?Anyone who has some understanding of Mindfulness and would like to deepen their knowledge and practise mindfulness techniques.
What the course will cover: This course will explore how we relate to our thoughts and what impact they can have on our daily lives. Certain events can trigger automatic thoughts but by taking a few mindful moments it is possible to gain some space between you and your reactions. This can help to free you from what triggers you and you don’t have to respond in the same way. It is a practice in breaking negative responses that have become habitual. The first step is recognising how a thought or action makes us feel and that, without raising our awareness, how it can lead to certain responses and behaviours.
This course offers the opportunity to practise mindfulness techniques; to be aware of your thoughts and feelings and then letting them go. It opens the door to self-understanding as you become the observer, rather than being drawn into them.
Course OutcomesBy the end of this course, you will be able to:• recognise how thoughts and feelings can impact on what you do• identify ways to gain space between you and your reactions• participate in mindfulness exercises
