OUR COURSES

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is ideal to develop a greater sense of presence and connection between body and mind. Mindfulness also helps us to get in touch with subconscious thoughts, feelings and behaviours that can stand in the way for our physical and mental health and well-being. Body and mind are in constant communication. If we can make this communication conscious, we have access to the wisdom of the body, and inner resources that lead to development, learning and transformation.

MBCT FOR STRESS / ANXIETY/ EXHAUSTION

MBCT helps you to access your natural capacity for self-care and to find a harmonious balance and equanimity. When we are under a high amount of stress we become more and more disconnected from our bodies and we tend to go up in our heads where, either we are worried about everything that needs to be done, everything that might happen, or ruminate over what has been in the past. By noticing these unhelpful patterns we can disrupt them and return to the present moment where we through practices and exercises, can strengthen and cultivate an ability to be present for life here and now.

MBCT FOR RECURRENT DEPRESSIONS

In MBCT you learn as a participant to notice and observe patterns in body and mind to increase the awareness around how low mood and negative thoughts affect you, and by doing this you can also break these patterns. By learning to recognise symptoms and learning to develop skills that enrich and strengthen yourself, you develop a foundation to prevent relapses into new depressions. Techniques and exercises from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are integrated in the programme that together with mindfulness, increase the awareness of the patterns of mind and body.

MBCT FOR TRAUMA

MBCT for trauma is a 12-week programme for trauma and difficult experiences that can help soothe symptoms such as fear, hopelessness, frustration, sleeping difficulties and more. The aim of the programme is to give you a possibility to create a safe platform where the trauma can be explored, where memories and experiences can be integrated and through this process, healing can start. Through meditation and exercises we are balancing the nervous system and disrupting negative thought patterns. This process allows you to strengthen your self-worth and the ability to be connected and close to others.

MBCT FOR CANCER

In our method we are working with two instructors where one instructor has psychotherapy training and the other instructor has either personally gone through cancer treatment or has a family member affected by cancer.

Family support 
Daily life can often radically change for those relatives who support the family member who has fallen ill to cancer. To be able to support and help your close one in the best way possible, it is important that also you as a family member, are feeling well to find the strength to handle both your loved one’s feelings and your own. Our method is focused to give you as a family member help and tools to cope with thoughts and emotions such as worry, fear, grief and hopelessness.

PROCESSING AFTER TREATMENT
After the treatment, is the contact with the health care diminished or stopped but friends and family are perhaps not as much in touch. Then life is expected to go back to normal. It is in this stage that a different level of stress can reappear and you can experience severe anxiety, a fear that the cancer will come back, feeling lost, depressed and low in general. It is then even more important at this stage to receive help in processing what you have gone through in order to have the possibility to feel safe again in and with your body.

“The world around you continues to spin as if nothing happened even though it feels like you are standing still. There is no one who really understands you and you do not find the words that describe how you feel. How are you going to be able to move on? How are you going to be able to let go and trust your body again? How are you going to be able to trust life? The fear and thoughts paralyse the body leaving you unable to engage. The thoughts are hindering you from healing. MBCT is a good method to learn to see your thought patterns and really understand yourself in the process in healing from cancer.”

CHEMOBRAIN
Many people who suffer with cancer are going through strong chemotherapy and the side effects from these treatments remain for a long time. Chemobrain or Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), is describes as a  state of mind, where many are experiencing a decreased ability to react and concentrate, impaired memory, forgetfulness, tiredness, and confusion. Every person is unique and the degree of MCI varies but those who suffer from this often feel a disappointment over not being able to recognise themselves. Studies of MBCT have shown good results with both the effectiveness of the chemotherapy treatment and with minimising the effect of chemobrain.
