Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to, and seeing clearly whatever is happening in our lives. It will not eliminate lifes pressures, but it can help us respond to them in a calmer manner that benefits our heart, head, and body. It helps us recognise and step away from habitual, often unconscious emotional and physiological reactions to everyday events. It provides us with a scientifically researched approach to cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding. Practicing mindfulness allows us to be fully present in our life and work, and improve our quality of life.
The Nottingham Centre for Mindfulness is delighted to have expanded its services to make mindfulness available to all Health and Social Care Staff across Nottinghamshire. We are now offering offering mindfulness interventions in collaboration with NHS England Staff Wellbeing Hubs.

Nottingham Centre for Mindfulness is offering three Mindfulness based courses free to staff in the Trust:
Mindfulness for daily living - 6 week course of 1 hour sessions combining short meditation practices and developing mindful awareness in daily life. Practising ways of stepping out of automatic pilot can increase our awareness and enable us to live life more fully. In order to develop the skills involved up to 30 minutes daily home practice is required. To find out when and to book your place email email@example.com.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Life (MBCT-L) - 8 week course of 2 hours a week, offers mindfulness practices and cognitive behavioural exercises that can enhance our wellbeing and flourishing. As we cultivate attitudes of interest and friendliness toward all of our experiences, whether pleasant or unpleasant, we learn skills for keeping our balance through life’s ups and downs. When difficulties arise, we learn to respond skilfully and engage with what is most important to us, opening to moments of joy, contentment, and gratitude.
