Learning to Self-Care - January  2021

8 Week MBCT Course

Course Details 

 

As healthcare professional the concept of self-care is something most of us struggle with because we are trained and conditioned to care for others. Yet, our self-care has never been more critical. We too are human, we are not immune to life's travails. 

 

This is an 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Course. It combines guided mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive psycho-education.

 

The course has been created for healthcare professionals who wish to enhance their general physical and mental wellbeing. 

  

The aim of this course is to promote self awareness of mind and body and self-compassion through the cultivation of mindful awareness. In so doing you will learn to nurture the balance between the DOING and the BEING modes of mind. You will gain some resources and life skills that will support and sustain your wellbeing in the long term.
