This workshop is designed as an introduction to the evidence based techniques in Mindfulness as a counselling approach. Mindfulness is a state of active attention to the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them as good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment. Participants will learn skills and approaches such as grounding, distraction, creating a holding environment, etc., that will provide tools for helpers to assist clients. Mindfulness has been shown to assist client’s struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, anger management as well as those recovering from physical illness.
