Are you feeling trapped by obsessive thoughts or behaviours and do you desire change?
Do you find it really hard to change your drinking habits and resonate with a revolving door, perhaps you are feeling helpless, isolated and alone?
Are you concerned about your consumption over the Christmas period and the impact of this?
If so, do join me for a free mindfulness taster session on Monday 12th December where I will offer some techniques to support you and an overview of the upcoming MBAR course.
Mindfulness Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR) is a mindfulness-based approach to promoting recovery from addiction and understanding relapse. This secular mindfulness course is for anyone who has obsessive or compulsive behaviour that brings temporary pleasure and relief and also for professionals working in the field of addiction who would like to understand addiction through the Mindfulness lens.
As well as learning to meditate and practice mindfulness in a structured way, the course will teach the following:
- Develop awareness of personal triggers and habitual reactions and learn ways to create a pause in this seemingly automatic process
- Change our relationship to discomfort, learning to recognise challenging emotional and physical experiences and responding to them in skilful ways
- Foster a non-judgmental compassionate approach towards ourselves and others
- Build a lifestyle that supports both mindfulness practice and recovery
The course, which is experiential and facilitated by Mel includes group sharing and discussion and is managed via the zoom platform a safe, inclusive learning platform.
The course will run from 7 – 9 pm BST on Mondays commencing 23rd January and there is also an opportunity to upgrade to the ReCover coaching programme and receive individual support from Mel who is a certified life and recovery coach as well as an approved UK Mindfulness teacher.
