Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction  MBSR

MBSR is an eight-week program that teaches one how to incorporate mindfulness to deal with the stressors in daily life. The program was originally developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who was a professor of medicine in the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in 1970s to help his patients to alleviate stress, life's difficulties, and physical suffering. Since then numerous scientific studies have proven the benefits of mindfulness on a wide range of issues such as:

  • Stress

  • Sleep problems

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Panic disorders 

  • Grief

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Anger management

  • Eating disorders 

  • Chronic illness

  • Depression

  • Concentration problems

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Mindfulness allows us  to shift our perspectives and view obstacles and stress as an opportunity for personal growth and development. It helps us to be more resilient to life's challenges and gain clarity into our lives. 

MBSR is suitable for people who have stress-related complaints, physical complaints, or want to know how to prevent stress from building up. It is also suitable for people who would like to learn more about mindfulness and learn how to be more resilient. 

This program takes place over the course of eight weeks, with one lesson each week and each lesson lasts around 2.5 hours, plus a silent day. 

*An individual intake will be set up before the commencement of the program to assess which mindfulness training program best suits you.
