New course – Transforming Anxiety – Spring 2023
A new in-person course “Transforming Anxiety” will be held in the spring of 2023. Rather than simply providing information or teaching techniques to help you manage anxious thoughts and feelings, this course will support you in making deeper personal shifts that transform your relationship to anxiety. Drawing on my training as a psychotherapist, coach and mindfulness teacher, this course will be experiential and require your commitment to taking action and making changes.
In order to thrive we don’t just want to ‘manage’, or ‘keep on top of’ our anxious thoughts and feelings with strategies and techniques. Transformation comes from having insight into our experience and discovering how our body and mind keep anxiety in alive, and learning how to working with body and mind, we can start to release familiar patterns.
This will be a small group of no more than 12 people who want to make a change in their lives. If this sounds like you or someone you know, then let’s have a conversation to see if this course is a good fit for you.
Mindfulness uses gentle, proven techniques, exercises and meditation to improve overall physical health and mental well-being.
Supported by scientific research from the University of Oxford, and recommended by NICE and the Mental Health Foundation, Mindfulness has been shown to prevent recurrent episodes of depression, anxiety, insomnia and low self esteem, increase energy, and alleviate chronic pain for many sufferers around the world.
Both MBSR (Mindfulness-based stress reduction) and MBCT (Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy) are established ways of addressing the challenges of living a full and connected life. If you need help coping with depression, anxiety or stress in your personal life or at work, or you’re looking for a way to manage pain from injury or disease, please take a look at our 8 week courses and taster sessions that run in Milton Keynes, or contact us to find out more.
