Course Content

This course consists of 6 X two hour sessions which are delivered over 6 consecutive weeks. During these sessions we will look at the benefits of mindfulness and what is involved when using mindfulness as a tool for reducing stress and anxiety. Learners will find out about mindful techniques and strategies and discussions will take place on how mindfulness is used to help individuals. Learners will be able to use some of the new high tech equipment such as VR headsets which have 6 bespoke sessions on mindfulness which will help embed the learning. Learners will be using mindful strategies in the classroom and will have the opportunity to see which of these will be the most beneficial for them personally.
