Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8-week Course

MBSR is a group based, intensive 8-week program, where participants learn meditation techniques to assist them in coping with stress, as well as with various illnesses such as anxiety, depression and pain.

MBSR is right for all populations because it is a secular training course that will assist the participants with stress reduction; something that is a part of everyone's life to some degree. The course would be beneficial to the general public, with emphasis on stressed-out working parents, but as well as for business who value their employees and want to offer a stress reduction course to their staff. MBSR can assist people with coping with stress, and illness in their life, so that they are more productive, have less illness (downtime), improve work and family relationships and conversations, and gain an overall improvement in the quality of life.

4 BENEFITS OF PRACTISING MINDFULNESS

  • So Many Thoughts, So Little Time

    We generate 12 to 70 thousand thoughts on average in a day; only 5% of these thoughts are new. That means 95% of the time we are either ruminating about the past, or anxious about our perceptions of the future, and having the same thoughts day in and day out. Additionally, research states that approximately 80% of these thoughts are negative, which can often worsen depression and anxiety.

  • Anchor yourself In The Present Moment

    Now, Imagine you could become fully alive in each moment as it was happening, and accept it without judgement. In our sessions you will learn how to respond to stress and anxiety with calm and ease as it arises, instead of reacting to the stimulus in that moment. With these tools you will be better able to respond with the awareness of what emotions and motives are driving your responses and decisions.

  • Developing Mindfulness One-on-One

    Mindfulness in private therapy sessions offers clients an opportunity to learn mindfulness practices in a one on one setting. This allows me to support your individual needs and preferences to help you manage stress and ease both physical and emotional pain using proven mindfulness techniques to guide you on your journey to getting to know your own mind. 

  • Your New Stress & Anxiety Survival Kit

    I teach mindful meditation techniques so that you are able to pay attention to your thoughts, recognize the negative ones, and recognize how often your thoughts are negative. This allows you to change this pattern by practicing mindfulness and accepting what is here and now instead of ruminating about the past or anticipating the future. This means being fully alive to each moment as it arrives, as it is present, and as it transforms into the next moment. In a private therapy session you will also be able to work on personal stressors which are unique to your life, and receive personalized support while you develop your own mindfulness practice.
