The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program is an evidence- based experiential program, initially developed by Jon Kabat Zinn from the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre. The 8-week program is suitable for people who are presently experiencing stress and anxiety in their lives or for those who are looking for self-care skills. In this program you will be encouraged to have a regular practice of mindfulness meditation and will be guided and supported through the period of the program.
Practising mindfulness on a regular basis has been shown to:
- Help gain insight into yourself and your relationship with others.
- Help you cultivate inner confidence and resilience
- Bring a sense of calm
- Bring awareness to yourself and your surroundings
- Get a sense of different perspectives
- Bring noticeable improvements in your well-being &
- Reduce anxiety and stress
The program will be run by Asha Padisetti, psychotherapist and counsellor, who works with children and women struggling with stress, anxiety, depression and other personal issues. Asha is also trained in delivering trauma-sensitive mindfulness practices for safe and transformative healing. Please call us to discuss your needs and suitability of the program. We are Registered NDIS providers and offer this program as part of group activities. Our next class will run early 2021.
