At the heart of mindfulness is self-awareness – the ability to be present in the moment and fully aware of our emotions, thoughts and surroundings. Practising mindfulness techniques can therefore help reduce anxiety, increase focus and improve mental well-being. An online mindfulness course is a great way to learn these skills in a supportive learning environment.

During this comprehensive online mindfulness course, you’ll discover the fascinating history of the discipline, including how it was introduced to the Western world. You’ll explore techniques and mindfulness practices such as meditation, visualisation and breathing exercises. You’ll also discover ways to help people observe their thoughts and feelings, and learn how actions and emotions are intertwined.

What you will learn

  1. Unit 1 - An Introduction to Mindfulness

    The first unit introduces the concept of mindfulness: its origins and history, what it is, what it does, and how it can help people. You’ll look at how the mind and body are connected and how the brain is affected by positive psychology.

  2. Unit 2 - Mindfulness Techniques

    In the second unit, you’ll take a look at some of the most popular and effective mindfulness exercises, such as the ‘raisin exercise’, the ‘body scan’, mindful seeing, mindful listening, and more. You’ll also get a quick introduction to dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT).

  3. Unit 3 - Mindfulness and Mental Health

    In this unit we explore levels of consciousness; the conscious mind, our subconscious mind, and our unconscious mind. You’ll study the cycle of thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and how they interact with one another. You’ll also take a brief look at psychological triggers.

  4. Unit 4 - Setting Up a Business - Mindfulness and Leadership

    Mindful leadership offers a range of tools to the business world to help managers become more effective, productive, self-aware, and all-round better leaders in their workplace, and in this unit, you’ll take a brief look at how.

  5. Unit 5 - Mindfulness based CBT for stress management

    Whether or not an individual feels stress is all down to their thinking or perception of events, and clients can learn how avoid it by managing their own thoughts and feelings more effectively. In unit five, you’ll look at the ABC model, the ‘sorting boxes’ technique, as well as other exercises to alleviate feelings of stress and anger.
