Mindfulness as an Effective Resource in Therapy - 17th November 2018


Mindfulness-based group programs such as MBSR, MBCT, DBT and ACT have proven to be effective for a range of conditions such as depression, anxiety, personality disorders and chronic pain. For instance, MBCT has been recognised by NICE as an effective treatment for depression.This workshop will have an experiential focus and will benefit beginners as well as those who have prior experience of mindfulness 

This training will

  • Focus on mindfulness as a useful personal resource for the therapist’s wellbeing.

  • Explore opportunities for integrating mindfulness within 1-1 therapy settings.

  • Enquire into how therapist and client may cultivate empathic presence, acceptance and equilibrium especially when working with complex dynamics and processes arising from insecure attachment or trauma.

  • Explore how it might enhance the therapeutic relationship and become a resource for clients.

  • Practice a range of skills and techniques that are particularly helpful for working in the present moment and with the non-verbal embodied processes of the therapeutic relationship.
