Being Mindful: Courses and Coaching
We deliver mindfulness courses and training throughout the year. We run public courses, design in-house workplace programmes and offer 1-2-1 coaching.
Why should I choose Being Mindful?
You’re in safe hands here. Our teacher, Simon Barnes, has practiced mindfulness for twenty five years. He has an MA in teaching mindfulness-based approaches and recently co-authored and run a feasibility study with Reading University for adapted mindfulness practices. He is a professional mindfulness teacher registered with BAMBA (British Association for Mindfulness-Based Approaches).
What kind of mindfulness do you offer?
It’s crucial you engage with proven methods when working with matters of the mind. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Finding Peace in a Frantic World are two evidence-based mindfulness programmes renown for efficacy. We utilise both approaches on our group courses, 1-2-1 coaching and workplace training.
What do I need to do?
Register for a free consultation so we can talk about your interest. It’s a relaxed conversation to explore the options and answer any questions before you make a decision. It’s free and there’s no obligation.
We’re registered with BAMBA, the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches, and abide by their Good Practice Guidelines.
The difference mindfulness makes
I was drawn to do a course with Being Mindful because a close friend told me about the difference that mindfulness had made to her life – the difference in perspective it offered that enabled her to manage the everyday irritations and annoyances in a new, less stressful manner.
It offered me a few minutes daily where I felt I had ‘permission’ to leave the busy world behind and do something for my own wellbeing. As I practised I noticed that I was focusing more on the moment and not taking things for granted so much. I slowly evolved a new way of accepting the things that went wrong (usually!)
If you’re considering mindfulness – just do it!
