We too are human, we are not immune to life's travails. This is a 5 day course that has been created for healthcare professionals who wish to enhance their general physical and mental wellbeing.  The course is underpinned by Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) principles as it combines guided mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive psycho-education.
