“Wherever you go, there you are.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
As you know, at byrne dean we do a lot of work on mental health awareness raising. We also focus on helping organisations to take steps to prevent mental health problems from arising and empowering employees to be able to manage their own mental health. There is now a great deal of evidence that demonstrates the benefits of workplace Mindfulness programmes. Mindfulness programmes can prevent mental health conditions from developing as well empower individuals to manage their own mental health and to be more productive, happy and engaged at work.
“Mindfulness is an integrative, mind– body-based approach that can help people manage their thoughts and feelings and change the way they relate to experiences” – The Mental Health Foundation
We run an hour-long Mindfulness session (that could be delivered as a lunch and learn session) which equips individuals with tools they can use to train their thoughts, be more productive at work and lead a happier life. The session covers the following:
What Mindfulness is and what it isn’t
The science demonstrating the effectiveness of Mindfulness
How Mindfulness can prevent/treat mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression
How Mindfulness is used in CBT
Practical tools that can be used to be more Mindful
The connection between Mindfulness, gratitude and optimism
What a guided meditation feels like.
The session is priced at £500 and could be followed up with a regular hour-long guided meditation sessions (priced at £500 each). We recommend 6 follow up sessions to embed the learnings and benefits. Whilst participants would be encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible, we recognise that due to the demands on professionals, that it will not always be possible to attend all 7 sessions.
If you would like to get a feel for the work that we do on Mindfulness, we are running a free open session on Tuesday 7th August. You can book your place on our website – here.
Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to set up a call/meeting to discuss our Mindfulness training in more detail.
