Mindfulness for Stress, Anxiety and Well-being
by Mr Ko Teik Yen, Mindfulness-based Psychotherapist
Have you suffered from restlessness, erratic sleep, weight problems, a weak immune system, finding it difficult to stay focus or feeling as if you have lost control?
Our popular Mindfulness workshop helps us to cope with problems that are all too common in our modern life. Stress, depression and anxiety are symptomatic of this frantic and chaotic world. Clinical studies have show that a mindfulness-based training program alleviates stress, improves overall health, and helps manage pain and chronic illness.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a skill that enables us to pay attention to what is happening in the present moment with increased awareness of our thoughts, feelings and body sensation with open curiosity.
Our mindfulness program combines the clinically proven Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for the prevention of depression relapse. It also incorporates skills training in mindfulness, stress physiology and cognitive awareness. It trains participants to develop and draw on their inner resource to bring about focus, balance, coping strategies, stability and wellbeing.
This five-week intensive is held over eight weeks. It includes:
- 6 guided Mindfulness meditation audios - Mindfulness training manual by UK Breathworks - Complimentary follow-up evening sessions at The Mind Faculty (subject to availability) - Support via Whatsapp Chat group and other online media
A certification of completion will be awarded upon completion of the course. This meets the requirement equivalent to the basic eight-week modern Mindfulness training as a foundation training to attend Mindfulness Teacher’s Training at UK Breathworks.
