Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course
Our eight-week evidence-based Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course is a good introduction to mindfulness and compassion.
Based on the gold standard MBSR course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, this course will give you the tools to manage stress, anxiety and pain.
Training designed to suit you
Most of our training is delivered in a virtual classroom and for some courses there is also the opportunity to learn via an e-Course or on location in a group setting.
The JOY Programme
The JOY Programme supports the mental and emotional health and well-being of everyone in the health and social care sector with mindfulness and compassion.
Low morale, the impact of post pandemic stress disorder and secondary trauma from challenging emotional jobs can all lead to an increase in employee absence or retention. To support you and your employees our experienced team at MindfulnessUK have developed The JOY Programme because there is Just One You. This 'train-the-trainer' programme will teach a group of employees how to lead mindfulness and compassion in the workplace, improving the psycho-social working environment and health and well-being of your employees.
Connect, collaborate and be part of our Community Membership
We welcome all our mindfulness and compassion students and graduates to join our Community Membership and connect with like-minded mindfulness advocates and continue to gain insight and knowledge from the MindfulnessUK team and each other.
