Four-Week Online Mindfulness Course

Our online mindfulness training course draws on the scientifically proven ideas and approaches of mindfulness. It is based on our in-house mindfulness courses and experience of delivering stress management coaching.

Participants of our online training see significant reductions in levels of stress, as measured by the Perceived Stress Scale Questionairre ('PSS10'), averaging almost 40% reduction in stress levels.

By taking this training participants will:

  • Understand the causes of stress and the human brain’s natural response to difficult situations
  • Learn how our thinking often results in us feeling pressured or unhappy, and how we can 'think' ourselves into feeling stressed
  • Learn about the principles and practices of mindfulness, including meditation – a practice which has been proven to help reduce stress and support our wellbeing
  • Acquire tools and ideas to help calm the mind and better respond to stressful or pressurised situations
