Overview

Overview

Create a little space between yourself and what you’re experiencing in this calming mindfulness session, conducted live over two-way video by a trained pro.

In challenging times, we can sometimes feel overwhelmed by our thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness doesn’t seek to minimise these sensations, but open your awareness instead, freeing you to observe them from one moment to the next without judgement.

Over the course of your 45-minute session, your mindfulness expert will explain some of the ways patterns of anxious thoughts can be managed through mindfulness, providing you with takeaway techniques you can use in your day-to-day life.

Treatment

During your session

The mindfulness experts in our community use evidence-based approaches, perfectly balancing the theory of stress and distraction with practical tools like meditation. Over a two-way video call, they’ll chat with you about your present mood and goals for the session, before introducing the principles of mindfulness so you can work to cultivate the state more often.

Once you’ve found a comfy place to sit down and lean back, they’ll guide you (or simply let silence guide you) into a meditative state, giving you space and time to observe your thoughts and feelings. Depending on your goals, they may also introduce breathing, mental noting or visualisation techniques.

Towards the end of your session they’ll gently invite you to open your eyes and return to the room, before chatting with you about your experience. They may also suggest anchoring and mental noting techniques you can use to return to mindfulness in your day-to-day.

You don’t need any equipment to join in, other than your laptop or phone. You may want to hop into loose clothing so you’re as comfortable as possible, and find a supportive place to sit.
