Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is group based meditation course with body awareness & movement learning via practice and study.
This course uses a combination of mindfulness meditation, body awareness, mindful movement and researched wellbeing tools and techniques to help you become happier, more mindful and less stressed.
In recent years this course has been the subject of controlled clinical research which has found beneficial effects, including stress reduction, relaxation, and improvements to quality of life. You will learn how your body handles (and can resolve) stress neurologically.
This substantial program is shown to improve emotional wellbeing and be an effective treatment for anxiety or low-mood difficulties. It can also be helpful for those looking for an 'edge' in their work or creative performance. It is not only about elevation of low-mood it's actually life enhancing practice for everyone that increases confidence, focus and happiness.
Mindfulness helps us to open to life rather than struggle against it, respond to challenges rather than react, show compassion towards ourselves rather than judgement and appreciation rather than negativity - allowing us to feel more connected, open, and more deeply alive.
I am delighted to be offering this MBCT for life course as it has been updated via the latest research and best practice via the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.
This is a certified course with 27 hours CPD. It is also a prerequisite for any mindfulness teacher training you are interested in, including mindfulness for children.

N.B - as well as the 8 weekly 2.5 hour sessions this programme also includes an all-day online retreat on Saturday 17 October. If possible giving Covid-19 this will be an in person retreat. I will offer both so you will have the option of joining the online or in person, in person is better but in the current circumstances I understand the need for online. The online retreat is included in your fee - a supplement to cover food etc will be required for the in person retreat should it go ahead.
The course also includes a comprehensive, supportive 125 page file and audio tracks for home practice. These will be emailed to you. Familiarity with email is necessary I will send you an email every week recapping what we covered in each class.
Home practice is an integral part of the course.

It is very important that the mindfulness and wellbeing teacher you choose follows UK best practice guidelines and is registered and accredited. See Bridgeen’s listing on BAMBA (British Association for Mindfulness Based Teachers) here and on the Irish Mindfulness Teachers Association Ireland (MTAI) here.
Bridgeen has taught MBSR since 2011 and taught online classes every day (twice a day) via zoom from 23 March to the 26 June to support everyone though the the first stage of the pandemic so I am very experienced and capable of running these online classes. However this will be the first time I have taught MBSR online I did also successful teach the 8-week MSC course online through April-June 2020.
