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.
In addition to training and delivery of MBCT in healthcare services, we also provide training for people wishing to teach mindfulness to the public in non-clinical settings, including the workplace, education and in the leisure industry.
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
