Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Therapy Course
Often times we find ourselves being challenged in our lives. When we are stressed frequently we can fall into old self-defeating patterns of behaviour that are difficult to change. When this happens our self-esteem can suffer and this in turn sets up a further reactive loop of stress leaving us feeling at times that our lives are out of our control.
Mindfulness helps us to take charge of our own lives in a way that is gentle and compassionate with ourselves, yet supporting us to become more skilful in managing stress and in managing inevitable challenges in our lives.
In this 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction/Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Course Carmel O’Hara will resource mindfulness practices that will support us to deal with reactivity in our lives so that we can make choices in how we want to respond to the many challenging situations that arises for us.
