Are you interested in learning ways to reduce stress, find more enjoyment, and become more focused and effective? Do you have a busy life, with lots of different demands on your time? If so, a course in Brief Mindfulness could be what you're looking for. To find out more, read on....
Mindfulness is best known for stress reduction - and the evidence suggests it does reduce stress by up to 30%, and anxiety by up to 70%.
But Mindfulness isn't just relaxation: it gives a richer and more vibrant experience of life, at work and at play. Your life - just as it is - becomes more enjoyable. This increased awareness of oneself and others improves relationships, and gives various health benefits (e.g. increased immune function, better sleep).
Mindfulness also reduces distraction and mental clutter, making your mind clearer and more focused. That helps you get through work more quickly and easily - boosting your effectiveness as well as your well-being.
Mindfulness has given me tools to relax, centre myself and stay in the right “frame of mind”, even in a busy and demanding workplace. Now I’m calmer and more able to focus on the things that matter, and bring all my energy to those issues. I am also better at dropping other issues without worrying about them. Mindfulness has helped create space in a busy life, and encouraged me to be the best I can be.

Brief Mindfulness is specifically designed to fit in a busy life. For example, one of the key techniques can be done in just 30 seconds, without closing your eyes or changing your posture.
I developed this approach on the basis of 25 years of mindfulness practice, including 20 years in a business context with others. It is in use in private, public and charity sectors organisations, including BUPA and Sheffield University.
At the end of the most recent 6 week Brief Mindfulness course, 100% of attendees reported that it had helped them manage stress, find more enjoyment and become more focused or effective.
Using Brief Mindfulness to “Reconnect" with the moment in 30 seconds is as effective as five minutes of conventional "breathing space" meditation, and a lot easier to slip into your day.

About this Course
This is a live on-line course - we use an interactive on-line classroom environment, so we can split off into pairs and small groups, just like a face-to-face training event. There's a maximum of 6 participants, so we can have a really good group experience, and there's plenty of scope to tailor the course to meet your particular needs.
It's a six week course - which gives you chance to integrate the skills into your daily life and work. We have a 2.5 hour workshop each week, and you get a comprehensive set of resources to draw upon between workshops.
You'll need to set aside 10-20 minutes per day for specific mindfulness practice (that's around 1% of your day!). Other practices are designed to be woven into your everyday routine.
Immensely helpful – Mindfulness gives me much more “real time” awareness of my thoughts and emotions. It also releases the creative part of my mind, and enables me to be more focused on the impact I’m seeking to achieve.
