Specialist Training: Mindfulness in a One-to-One Context

January 17, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - February 21, 2024 @ 5:30 pm GMT


The contemporary mindfulness movement was founded on group-based courses, however the benefit of bringing a mindfulness-based approach to individuals is now being recognized. This six-week specialist training is for those interested in bringing mindfulness into a one-to-one context.

Participants will engage in an experiential learning process, developing relational skills and understanding, while developing a plan for implementation that is specific to their setting. The training will be of greatest benefit to those already working within a one-to-one context such as therapy, coaching, teaching, chaplaincy, healthcare, social work, and other carer work. It is also relevant for those wanting to teach a mindfulness-based program curriculum to individuals rather than groups.

Who is it for?

Those who:

Are interested in exploring mindfulness in the context of their professional lives and work one to one, such as coaches, therapists, yoga teachers, physiotherapists, midwives, chaplains, nurses, complementary therapists, teachers, carers, community health workers, etc.
