What is Mindfulness Now?

The Mindfulness Now programme offers an integrated approach to using mindfulness techniques to help clients deal with serious physical and emotional trauma, as well as building emotional resilience.

Mindfulness Now offers a fusion of key elements of mindfulness-based approaches, including the evidence-based Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The latter, developed by Professor Mark Williams of the University of Oxford and colleagues, offers a breakthrough in the treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma, and is recommended by NICE as a treatment of choice for depression.

Excellent course, beautifully paced. A perfect balance of educational listening and learning, experiential activities and inquiry.

Initially I was slightly anxious about the stress of doing such an intensive five-day course, particularly over the Zoom platform – a medium that can be stressful if used for an extensive period. All anxieties were immediately dissipated by the calm and focussed presence of Aston. The use of Zoom actually creates a feeling of personal contact, which is something I will be particularly aware of as I take forward Zoom based group-work.

I know feel confident to take forward the use of mindfulness, particularly the Mindfulness Now approach, within the centre I work and within my private practice.

Thank you to all who were involved in pulling this together, and thank you to Aston and Irena for a very enjoyable week."
