Healthcare Practitioners and members of the public
This programme is based on the 8 week mindfulness programme modelled on the Stress Reduction Programme pioneered at UMASS Medical Centre (Jon Kabat Zinn).
This course is a means to explore and develop insight into one’s own mind – body process and can have a powerful impact on how one relates to stress and difficulties.
The MBSR programme can help with many issues of psychological and physical wellbeing including:
- Stress, job – family – financial.
- Chronic Pain
- High Blood Pressure
- Sleep Disorders
- Skin Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Post Traumatic Stress
- Feeling overwhelmed
This course is identical to courses in medical settings for clients but with an emphasis for healthcare professionals. Bringing one’s own intuitive awareness to the mind/body process can allow diagnosis and treatment to become more integrated. It is challenging and life affirming regardless of what challenges are faced in one’s personal and professional lives.
