Mindfulness is a very popular programme due to growth in other forms of therapy which are seen to be beneficial for stress management and other issues. The demand for other therapies in the NHS particularly has seen a rise in Mindfulness therapies and a growing awareness in society about mental health. You develop a compassionate approach to mindfulness with inner resources which are required to manage this effectively. The programme is run as a partnership with University of Aberdeen and the Mindfulness Association Ltd with some training delivered by this organisation.
You will develop mindfulness practice in health, education and business contexts to enable people to take better care of themselves. This is a highly rewarding area to get into and you can join this programme from any degree or equivalent professional experience. There is a residential workshops on Holy Island as part of the programme. Upon graduation you can work as a Counsellor in Mindfulness or teacher of it.
