What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is simply knowing what is happening in your mind, while it is happening.

Many of our thoughts are accurate and useful—and many are not. Yet, in the heat of the moment it is often difficult to tell which is which.

Breathworks courses develop your ability to step back from the flow of thoughts and emotions—rather than getting swept up in it. This clarity of mind allows you to make better decisions, stay calm, and act more effectively.

The Problem of Workplace & Employee Stress

  • 57% of sick days - and huge reductions in effectiveness and productivity (not to mention wellbeing!) at work - are caused by workplace stress.

  • Two thirds of employers reported an increase in mental health problems in the last year

  • £35 billion was the cost to UK employers from mental ill health in 2018

  • 24% more working days are lost to mental illness compared to a decade ago - and the number is rising.

"60% of long-term work absence is caused by mental ill health. The CMO suggested more should be done to prevent mental ill health and cited mindfulness-based treatment as one of the evidence-based options."

Introductory Sessions

Breathworks' introductory sessions acquaint you with mindfulness as an approach to wellbeing, covering methods and perspectives that can be applied immediately. These sessions allow participants to test the water and see if they would like to engage further. 

Resilience Sessions

Half-day educational sessions that provide people with the chance to explore what creates stress and what resilience means for them; delegates explore what they can do differently to improve their resilience and avoid exhaustion. These sessions include an introduction to four mindful practices, which attendees often find highly valuable.

Staff Wellbeing Events

Half-day or full day events, to relax, refresh and restore teams while supporting skills for future resilience.  Ideal for team away sessions or for encouraging staff engagement.

Mindfulness in the Workplace Course

Providing a comprehensive tool-kit of skills and approaches over a period of 4 to 8 weeks - an opportunity for team members to develop a personal practice and explore how they want to apply that practice in their workplace.

This course equips you with the skills to take a mindfulness-based approach to workplace challenges; helping you to develop strong relational skills, whilst learning to stay steady, clear-headed and calm amidst the changing work environment. 

Our course includes extensive teacher-led training and guided practice.  A programme combining both home and work practice supplements the course and embeds the learning.
