Not all Mindfulness courses are of the same standard and quality. This course has been scientifically researched and recommended by the NHS.
Leadership and research in the UK has largely come from the Universities of Bangor, Exeter and Oxford. All teaching within Mindfulnessmk is under the direct supervision of Helen Stephenson who also provides the majority of input for all the sessions. MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) is the only mindfulness course recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Helen is registered with with BAMBA.
This course is open to all and is taught over eight weekly sessions on a Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. This year the Tuesday evening group will run on zoom, hopefully in 2021 we will meet again in the Quaker Centre. The group in Olney on Wednesday morning is deliberately kept small and currently for social distancing, does not exceed 4 participants. Each session comprises of at least one guided practice, time to reflect and a summary of what was learnt. Between the weekly sessions participants are invited to practice at home, using the course text book and accompanying CD. This will reinforce the learning and will enable you to make mindfulness part of your daily life.
