Mindfulness learning for health and wellbeing in Northamptonshire


Welcome to a more focused and happier you

Do you often look back at the past with regret and wish you’d done things differently? Do you worry or get anxious about the future? They’re all natural emotions, we all have them. But more and more people are finding that mindfulness can help them do this less and live more in the moment. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy courses run by Nicola Smith in Northamptonshire can help make you more aware, so that you see things as they are, not how you would like them to be. You’ll discover how to manage the ups and downs of life and learn ways of responding that help improve your wellbeing.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy benefits you and your organisation


Mindfulness for you
Group or 1-2-1 sessions available

MBCT is suitable for anyone wishing to enhance their general physical and mental wellbeing. Whether it’s to help you manage your stress and anxiety better. Or to deal with low moods or bouts of depression. Or simply to help you improve your concentration and focus and ability to stay in the present.

Mindfulness for the workplace
Reducing stress and increasing productivity

Mindfulness gives us a better understanding of stress and problems in the workplace, whilst improving communication and relationships with others. People say that mindfulness helps them to think straight and have a clear head. So practising mindfulness can also improve your working memory.

Why MBCT mindfulness?
The science behind the therapy

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8-week programme, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn. MBCT was adapted by Mark Williams, Zindel Segal and John Teasdale to incorporate our knowledge of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
