The stresses of modern living can impair our memories, make it difficult for us to focus and be detrimental to our concentration levels
Each one of us has a natural ability to practice mindfulness and the MBSR / MBCT (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction / Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) programme enables you to tap into this wisdom through an evidence based structure. The programme shows us how to live more fully and to experience each moment, easing anxiety and alleviating depressive thinking.
Jon Kabat Zinn, founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, describes mindfulness practice as an awareness that arises through purposefully paying attentionto the present moment, without judgement. Mindfulness allows us to acknowledge what is happening within our bodies, right here, right now.

The power to achieve greater emotional and psychologicalbalance through mindfulness is embedded within us all, and the MBSR / MBCT Programmes will support individuals to learn and apply mindfulness techniques in their everyday lives.
