MBCT Introduction for Stressreduction (9-Part)
This course offers those with an interest in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy an opportunity to explore the Eight Step MBCT programme developed by Williams, Segal and Teasdale within a 5-day format at our venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23. Each day covers two classes of the MBCT programme, with meditations to practice at home between sessions (approx. 40 minutes daily). The course includes a full day of guided silent meditation on Day 5.
The intention of this course is to provide participants with an experiential understanding of MBCT . In each session, participants will encounter a number of meditation practices and cognitive-behavioural exercises to explore on a direct, personal level. The course is accompanied by a handout and CDs to support the home-practice.Read More This course does not equip participants to teach the MBCT programme, but will help to establish or deepen a personal meditation practice, which forms a necessary foundation for training at a later state to become a trainer in Mindfulness-based Approaches (UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers, Good Practice Guidelines).
ONE-TO-ONE: Dr Collard is also able to offer one-to-one tuition, either in person or via Skype, which will cover all the material present in the Eight Week Programme over a flexible period of time.
