Your Mindfulness Course

There are many misconceptions about mindfulness. It is not simply another word for meditation and although its popularity is increasing it is not a fad or a trend; after all it has been around for more than two thousand years. To live a mindful life, practitioners learn to inhabit the moment – this reduces stress and encourages an increased sense of self-awareness so that problems can be challenged and worked through in a calm way.

This foundation course will introduce you to the techniques and core principles of mindfulness. You will learn mindfulness techniques, strategies and routines that can be applied to a variety of contexts for self-development or to share with others.

How it Works

Upon enrolment you receive your first course lessons.

You can study in your own time, at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home. If you have any questions, or would like feedback or encouragement about your course or your studies then you can contact our friendly tutors by phone, email or post.

At the end of each lesson are a set of questions. Completing these can aid your learning and help you master each step before moving on to the next. Your next lesson will then arrive for you to continue when it suits you.

Having progressed through each lesson you can take your final examination at home, and at a date and time that suits you. Then, on successful completion you will be awarded your BSY certificate.

No practical training is required to complete this course. On successful completion, you have received training designed as either a foundation qualification leading to further studies to attain a practitioner level, or professional development to gain additional skills and knowledge to expand the practice of the existing therapist.
