A level 1 Introductory course - further your skills from part A

intro to mindfulness | pt b

If you have completed our Intro to Mindfulness | Part A and are looking to take your skills to the next level, this course is for you.

Mindfulness is a scientifically proven method of caring for one of our most valuable assets, our mind. It is a powerful tool for reducing stress, anxiety and depressive symptoms. On average, we spend 47% of our day lost in thought, thinking about the pressures of work, the stress of raising a healthy family, dreaming about things in the future, or ruminating about regrets of the past. Mindfulness enables us to be present to the moment.

Level 2 Professional Development Course

mindfulness in practice | pt b

Deepen your knowledge and extend your practical application from Mindfulness in Practice Pt A

Current research shows that the practical application of neuroscience principles and mindfulness practices in therapy enhances positive psychological change and growth. Mindfulness trains our ‘mind’ to harness our ‘brain’s’ natural capacity for neurological re-structuring. The data is so compelling we can no longer ignore it. Learning how to harness the restructuring capacities of the brain is the new wave of therapy.

What people have to say

“I thoroughly enjoyed the training presented and found the theory and techniques very useful in broadening my professional practice, as well as enriching my everyday life. I would highly recommend it to professionals working in the helping professions or anyone with an interest in personal growth and development.”
LINEE, Clinical Psychologist

“It has been fascinating to learn about how the brain functions under stress, how this relates to an individual's past and how it can be 'reset' to enable more positive outcomes for the future. Learning how to engage in the present moment instead of living in fear of the uncertainties ahead is a must, for any individual.”
DEB, Designer

"The course is thoughtfully put together and beautifully presented. The trainers are wonderfully welcoming, sensitive and knowledgeable. They deliver the content in a manner that brings research and theory to life. I gained so much that I have been able to implement both personally and within my work. I recommend this training without hesitation. Go for it."
JULIE, Occupational Therapist
