Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Our Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course is based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn (author of Full Catastrophe Living) at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre and the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy courses developed by Segal, Williams and Teasdale at the University of Bangor where Jean, the course facilitator has completed her studies.

Mindful Self-Compassion

Mindful Self-Compassion

The Mindful Self Compassion course is based on the work created by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer. MSC is the foundation of emotional healing — being aware in the present moment when we're struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
