Mindfulness–Integrative-Cognitive-Behavioural-Therapy (MiCBT) — 8 Week Course
Based on the well-researched mindfulness technique, MiCBT integrates mindfulness skills with cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) to enhance greater awareness of potential harmful thinking patterns and physical sensations that may be contributing to poor states of mind and health.

What we provide:
Have you ever noticed that the way we treat ourselves is often quite different to how we would treat a close friend or loved one? We usually respond to other people’s difficulties with compassion, encouragement and kindness, yet often our own inner voice can be harsh and self-critical.
Mindful Self Compassion is the antidote to this harsh, and often counterproductive, self-critical approach. In this 8-week evidence-based program you will learn 3 core aspects of self compassion.
The MSC program was developed by Christopher Germer PhD, a leading Clinical Psychologist and lecturer on Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Dr Kristin Neff PhD, an associate professor of educational psychology whose ground-breaking research informed the program.

We work with individuals who are ready to make a massive transformation from being sick to ready to fulfil your life’s purpose.
We start the process by assessing your behavioural and reactive patterns found in your personality structure, or Enneagram Type (not just an online test), which provides a framework for you to see coping strategies which have kept you in illness. From here, we teach you how to cultivate awareness of holistic states, relax survival strategies, which allows healing from an emotional, mental and vagal level, the catalyst for the physical to be repaired.
We have extensive training and coaching in trauma-informed approaches to mental health, meditation, well-being, and cultivating awareness (Russ Hudson, Jessica Dibb, Ginger Lapid-Bogda, among others).
Buteyko Breathing Exercises are a compilation of exercises that have been designed in order to improve an individual’s health.
There is a common belief that the more air we breathe, the healthier we are. Few people realize that in order to increase blood flow and oxygen delivery to the tissues, breathing should be slowed down so that less air enters the body. You know that you are taking less air into the lungs than normal when you experience a tolerable feeling of air hunger. Within a few minutes of continued slowing of the breath to experience air hunger, body temperature increases to indicate an improvement to blood circulation. At the same time, there is an increase to watery saliva in the mouth – traditionally observed in Yoga as activation of the body’s relaxation response.
In 1957 Ukrainian Dr. Konstantin Buteyko observed that unhealthy people have noticeable breathing during rest. Their breathing is often through the mouth, using the upper chest with a respiratory rate and volume greater than normal.
Over the span of four decades, Dr. Buteyko developed a program designed to normalize breathing volume. Using slow breathing and breath holds following an exhalation, the objective is to take less air into the lungs. With regular practice over a few weeks, breathing is brought towards normal with resultant improvements to a number of common complaints such as asthma, rhinitis, anxiety, panic attacks, and sleep disorders.
From the individual experiencing severe asthma and panic attacks to the healthy adult, a program is available depending on the age and health.
