Research has shown that mindfulness meditation offers powerful health and wellbeing benefits. Qualified teachers can be in high demand, teaching 1-to-1, as well as in groups and within organisations. This certified teacher training includes specialist tuition in mindfulness approaches, including the Mindfulness Now Programme.
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 mindfulness-based approaches, including the evidence-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The latter, developed by Dr Mark Williams and colleagues formerly of the University of Oxford and latterly of the University of Wales – Bangor, offers a breakthrough in the treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma, and is recommended by NICE as a treatment of choice for depression.
Who developed the Mindfulness Now programme?
Nick Cooke developed the Mindfulness Now programme after his own experience of using mindfulness to help him with his recovery and rehabilitation, including management of pain, following two serious illnesses.
He already had considerable experience of learning and practicing mindfulness and, as a therapist, it’s something which for many years he has taught clients to practise.
