Mindfulness at Work Courses
People experience greater well-being and fulfillment in the workplace once they learn how to manage stress, respond rather than react in a habitual way and develop interpersonal skills that aid good working relationships. Mindfulness research has been clinically proven to to help employees obtain these skills.
The pace of modern living means that the stress levels of many employees are at an all time high. Job pressures, juggling family commitments and general day to day life stresses can lead to a feeling of overwhelm along with various other negative emotional states, such as burnout, anxiety and depression. It is through the filter of these negative emotional state that employees are attempting to perform well in the workplace. However, the negative impact of stress on the body and mind's sense of well-being inevitably results in the stress levels being maintained or even increasing in the body and mind. Mindfulness offers the tools which allow us navigate these stresses more skillfully.

Our mind is the most powerful than the most sophisticated computer on the planet, yet we have never received an instruction manual on how to use our minds. The negativity bias of the mind ensures that left to its own devices our minds can develop unhelpful thinking styles which can work against our own desire for happiness. These negative thought patterns will impact on our happiness levels, work performance and our mental and emotional well-being.
Our Mindfulness at Work training courses, based on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, allows attendees to increase happiness levels, enjoy greater emotional balance and reduce stress and anxiety levels. Research has shown that after as little as two weeks Mindfulness training people were happier, could deal with stress better, and had better relationships, both at work and in personal life. These benefits increased the longer Mindfulness was practiced.
Why this course is unique
Our Mindfulness at Work course is based on the latest scientific research, which suggests additional psychological tools are combined with Mindfulness to obtain enhanced benefits. The original Mindfulness research was based Mindfulness as a standalone intervention. However, as science has progressed, research has shown that when Mindfulness is combined with tools from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology (the study of happy people) the benefits from Mindfulness practice are greatly improved.
These two additional tools allow existing thought patterns in the conscious and unconscious minds to be addressed and dissolved. In that way course attendees can experience deeper and longer levels of Mindfulness practice, uninterrupted by existing negative thought patterns that would previously have sabotaged any attempts to practice Mindfulness.
This Mindfulness at Work Course is primarily focused on Mindfulness, with CBT and Positive Psychology providing supporting tools to enhance Mindfulness practice. This combination offers participants an integrated approach to true happiness and well-being in life.
Since 1979 comprehensive mindfulness research has indicated the benefits of mindfulness practice for physical and mental health, increased levels of focus, greater empathy, increased happiness and reduced stress.
Contemporary research from the field of Neuroscience show that mindfulness practice positively alters brain functioning and structure.
