Take Back Control with Mindfulness

If you feel overwhelmed, your response to every situation can be impulsive and emotional.

You may feel that you have lost control and sometimes struggle to cope with the demands placed on you.

A stress response (fight, flight, freeze) is a natural reaction to threatening situations. In times of trouble, it can help us to survive.

So, what’s the problem?

The difficulty is that, in a highly pressured society, full of uncertainty and change, the stress response can be constantly fired up.

How can we help ourselves?

There is a way to take back control!

Mindfulness teaches you how to recognise stress in yourself and others, enabling you to self-manage and self-regulate the body’s response.

The mindfulness-based course introduces you to practical ways of looking after your well-being and to manage your stress levels.

Invest in Yourself

If your life is one hectic schedule of tasks, it might feel impossible or selfish to allocate time to yourself.

Investing in yourself will help you and everyone around you.

Mindfulness can be used as a practical skill throughout daily life and can be particularly useful during challenging times.

Mindfulness training teaches you how to ‘be with’ and manage the noise and clutter of life and the mind.

Whilst you shift your focus inward, you will learn techniques to help calm your body and mind, making space for clarity of thought.

The training will help you become more aware of your thoughts, body sensations and feelings.

You will recognise habitual patterns that may have been useful to you in the past but are no longer of benefit.

It is time to invest in yourself, so you can regain a sense of control and a better understanding of who you are and what you need.
