Present moment is central to mindfulness-based practice. There is a growing body of evidence to support the use of mindfulness-based interventions in the treatment of mental health difficulties. This introductory experiential workshop is designed for therapists, coaches and anyone working therapeutically with individuals experiencing emotional distress. You will be guided through different mindfulness examples and encouraged to work through these, both individually and in small groups, in the same way you could with your clients. The presenter will supply you with handouts that are jargon free and accessible, so you can integrate mindfulness principles into your therapy practice.
