Event Details

Safety Net’s Mindfulness for Practitioners training is a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, the most effective form of Mindfulness training as pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The eight week programme will support participants in developing lifelong strategies to enhance their own emotional wellbeing and resilience. This course is ideal for those working in health and social care fields such as social workers, teachers, nursery staff and health visitors. Such roles can be as emotionally demanding and stressful as they are rewarding, this programme will help build abilities to manage personal wellbeing and combat compassion fatigue. Additional clinically proven benefits of MBSR include stress reduction, pain management and an improved ability to deal with anxiety, depression and insomnia. Mindfulness is widely recognised as a powerful tool that can help us enhance appreciation of life and manage stress, empowering those who practice to thrive rather than just survive.

"This course has been fantastic!... Informative, perfectly paced, insightful, well managed. Perfect!" (Previous course participant)

The course comprises of 8 x 2 hour sessions on Wednesdays, from 5.30pm to 7.30 pm. The sessions run from Wednesday 4th October- Wednesday 29th November inclusive, there will be no session on Wednesday 18th October 2017 due to half term.

Cost: SPECIAL OFFER £80 per person

Course Facilitator- Wendy Guest

Wendy has many years of experience in training practitioners and facilitating groups in Protective Behaviours, a life skills and safety awareness programme, within community health services and for Safety Net. Many of the skills needed to keep ourselves feeling safe resonate strongly with mindfulness practices.

On a personal level, Wendy has been drawn to develop more understanding and practice of mindfulness for herself and really values the ongoing emotional and physical wellbeing that it gives her.

Wendy has been trained by the Hawn Foundation and has delivered ‘MindUp’ training to teachers and schools to enable them to implement mindful practices within the school curriculum. She has trained with the SMART foundation as a mindfulness coach and facilitator, and now facilitates mindfulness groups in Brighton & Hove. She is currently continuing her CPD with Mindfulness UK, a member of the UK Network of Mindfulness Teacher Training Organisations.
