This is a pilot scheme and therefore exceptional value for money…read more about Niamh and this exciting new opportunity
Mindfulness is an awareness process that involves the ability to pay attention with flexibility, openness and curiosity to life as it arises at any given moment. It is a practice when cultivated, that enables people to interact with themselves and others through awareness and compassion, handling life’s stresses and challenges with more ease and resilience. Ultimately, it teaches us to accept and respond, instead of react to life.
Aim: The aim of this six week course is to introduce clients to the practice of mindfulness in their everyday lives while simultaneously being held within a psychotherapeutic space. This one-to-one experience fosters a tailored and unique mindful environment.
Outcome: At the end of this course clients will be able to understand how to recognise and handle difficult thoughts and strong emotions within themselves related to stress, pain (including physical), anxiety, fear, sadness and anger etc. They will have developed awareness on the factors that influence and perpetuate much of the patterns of suffering within their lives and have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to make alternate and more life affirming choices within their respective environments.
Cost: This 6 week pilot course costs €233.
