Mindfulness tuition online
This mindfulness online course teaches you Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). This therapy is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as a treatment of choice on the NHS for repetitive bouts of depression. Depending on your needs, we can also tailor make the course to include Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which has much wider application including in schools, businesses and the general population wanting to learn secular mindfulness online. Western mindfulness courses blend ancient wisdom and modern psychology with neuroscience.
The word mindfulness means clear and kind awareness. It is being alive and present to the external and internal world in the moment. Mindfulness is taught through meditation. During the practice, you train the mind to focused and concentrated. After a while, you will notice the habitual patterns of your mind. You will begin to learn to manage your emotions more effectively, rather than resorting to suppression or avoidance.

Mindfulness is a set of skills to help you pause, reflect and find more spaciousness in your life. However, learning to meditate takes time.

FAQs on mindfulness
Below are some frequently asked questions about mindfulness online and the courses and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy sessions that I offer remotely. If your questions are still unanswered having read this page, please feel free to reach out to me.
What is your mindfulness teacher training?
I have completed the full specialist mindfulness training pathway through Bangor University and am listed with the British Association for Mindfulness Based Approaches.
Mindfulness has undoubtedly been the fastest growing wellbeing intervention this millennium. It has turned heads at the World Economic Forum, parliament and the media. Mindfulness has seen such a sharp rise in popularity, that regulation of the field has been unable to keep pace.
An all-party group of MPs made a case for mindfulness to be introduced to public sector services and the workplace. But they also urged in their report, Mindful Nation UK, that: “The training of [mindfulness] teachers is critical… There is considerable and justifiable concern about the quality of [mindfulness] teachers and how to ensure integrity.” In response, the British Association for Mindfulness Based Approaches has developed a register of mindfulness teachers who meet high standards of training, specific mindfulness supervision and ongoing training.
MBCT is an even more specialised form of mindfulness as it has been developed for recurrent depression. Further to the above training and registration, only professionals with a mental health qualification are approved to teach MBCT.
How long is the programme?
We will meet weekly for 50 minutes for eight sessions. The MBCT programme has a set curricula, which we will go through together. Each week has a theme and a new meditation to practice between sessions.
Will I have to do homework?
Each week you will be given a workbook and a guided meditation MP3. You will need to do an hour’s home practice every day for the duration of the eight weeks. This can be tough to commit to, which is why I allow you to bring a friend to the sessions with you so that you can buddy up and support each other.
