What is mindfulness meditation?

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us (1). Mindfulness meditation is a practice that helps us increase this ability. If you would like to know more have a look at the following websites:

Group Therapy

 

For some people group therapy can be a good alternative to one-to-one work. As well as being cheaper, people gain enormously from having the support of the group and realising on a profound level that they are not in alone in their suffering.

 

If there is enough interest, HumanKind will offer the Courage to Be group. This is a closed therapy group, which will run for eight weeks at a time, with the possibility of people attending more than one course.

 

The Courage to Be for people who struggle to feel OK about themselves and worry that they are not good enough. You may feel judged by other people or less worthy than others, or may find you are often comparing yourself unfavourably to others. The group will be a safe space in which to explore who you are and the things that get in the way of you feeling comfortable in your own skin. The group will offer the opportunity for different sorts of exploration, including:  talking, watching films, using creative media and being quiet. We do ask that students commit to attending the group regularly as this helps the group to gel and the members to feel more confident to share together.

 

Some of us find the thought of meeting up in a group daunting; however, it does give us the opportunity to have the support of others who feel similar and this can be really affirming. So if the words above describe you but you feel anxious about joining a group, then we suggest you still apply to join as there may be a way Jenny and Karen can help you to get along for the first few weeks. In their experience, after the first couple of sessions students are already starting to feel a little more comfortable and really value the shared experience.
