Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

This eight-week course teaches mindfulness skills to help you deal with stress and anxiety, depression, physical pain and other challenges of daily life.

This eight-week online course combines meditation, body awareness and teachings to help diminish the tendency of the mind to react in unhelpful ways. During the course, you will establish a daily mindfulness practice as the basis for learning to respond more consciously to life and the challenges it brings.

The courses in May and July are being run specifically for postgraduate and final year students.

Most people finishing the course report lasting benefits including:

  • increased capacity to relax and stay calm
  • greater energy and enthusiasm
  • improved ability to cope with short and long-term stressors
  • better relationships.

This evidence-based course is taught by two experienced therapists and mindfulness teachers, Amanda James and Nicola Peacock.

Each session builds on what has come before so full attendance is expected.
