Course Description

Mindfulness is a wonderful tool for therapists to have at their fingertips.

The course discusses many techniques to help manage stress and pain levels and improve relationships. Where our suffering comes from is explained, looking in detail at our thoughts and emotions and how they rule us.

This stand-alone course takes the student through to meditation. However, Mindfulness is equally suitable for someone wanting to relieve depression or anxiety and improve relationships without wishing to practice formal meditation. Parents, children, siblings, friends, colleagues and therapists can benefit from what this course offers.

Additionally, Mindfulness can be incorporated into other holistic therapies for a more connected client/practitioner relationship. Mindfulness techniques can be incorporated into weight loss, Counselling, Relaxation therapy, Reiki, Reflexology and so on.

This wonderful therapy can produce quite profound ‘life changing’ results.

About the Course writer – Lisa Wells

I first became aware of Mindfulness in 2006, when I studied Reiki 1 and have maintained my interest during Reiki II and Reiki Master.

Within my own Holistic Therapy business I have integrated Mindfulness into all the therapies I offer.

Recently, I was approached by an ‘Addiction Rehabilitation unit’ to teach mindfulness to their clients, over an 8 week period. The results during this time were quite profound, which prompted me to write this course.

I also have first hand experience of mindfulness being of great benefit for those suffering with depression and anxiety – another reason why it is so important to me for people to be able to learn these wonderful techniques.

Course Feedback

I would like to thank you all so much for producing such an amazing course that not only is a brilliant ‘stand alone’ course for therapists, it can also be incorporated into every other holistic/complementary therapy both in a formal and informal way – to suit the individual needs of the client.

Mindfulness is about acknowledging what is happening in the present moment; focussing and embracing on the moment/s without fear, pain, anxiety, judgement and without listening to the ‘negative chatter’ of our mind which can cause much of the pain that we suffer.   It also helps us to understand that our subconscious mind occupies 90% of our mind, meaning that our conscious mind occupies only 10% of our mind.

Mindfulness impacts on the personal aspects of my life in many ways and what is interesting is that it was not until I began to study Mindfulness I realised I was already learning how to use some of these techniques as part of an evolutionary process in the healing of my own body and mind in my recovery from breast cancer.  As such, the study of Mindfulness has been and continues to be an amazing personal, therapeutic, intelligent, healing process for me that makes so much sense, as well as being integral to everything that I will be doing as a therapist/practitioner.

Thank you for the help and support and for awarding me a ‘A grade with distinction’ for this course.  I loved studying it so much and it is now included into my daily life as well as being incorporated into all my therapies – either formally or informally dependent upon each individual client’s needs.
