We aim to make mindfulness accessible to as many people as possible. Through teaching, training and research we aim to share the life-enhancing benefits arising from mindfulness with integrity, innovation and passion.
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has a promising evidence base for a wide range of physical, emotional and mental health problems. It is recommended as a treatment for depression in NICE Guidelines (2004, 2009).
At the Nottingham Centre for Mindfulness (NCM), we have been providing MBCT to people accessing our clinical services since 2007. Our teachers offer this intervention in a wide range of clinical settings.
We are committed to increasing availability of MBCT through the delivery of high-quality training and supervision of MBCT teachers, so that as many people as possible benefit from this intervention. Graduates of our foundation training in MBCT are now running groups across the East Midlands and the UK.
We also provide mindfulness drop ins, workshops and courses to healthcare staff as part of initiatives to increase wellbeing, resilience and stress management in the workplace.
We are a member organisation of the ‘British Association of Mindfulness-based Approaches (BAMBA)’. For details about this organisation visit www.bamba.org.uk
We contribute to the International Mindfulness Integrity Network Working Party, an international collaborative network of mindfulness-based teacher training organisations committed to maintaining integrity and upholding training standards of mindfulness-based programs supporting transformative inner work that allows all beings to flourish in our diverse world through the practice of mindfulness.
