One participant wrote after completing the Mindfulness in Life and Work course:

‘Absolutely amazing, it has changed my life entirely. I feel so much more connected to myself helping me to regulate my thoughts and feeling…plus, I gave up smoking!’

Mindfulness in Life and Work will help you to consciously seek and appreciate the small pleasures that are always around us and understand why we are drawn to unhelpful thoughts and patterns.

We will help you to cultivate skills to manage your focus and cope with life’s challenges. Past participants have reported their relationships with themselves and others, both at work and at home have had positive improvement after completing this course.

Mindfulness in Life and Work is a course particularly useful for staff who experience stress, anxiety or low mood symptoms.
