Event Type: Mental Health,
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest
zoom

This group is a remote offer, which requires internet connection, access to Zoom and a confidential space. The group is rooted in principles of ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy); an empirically based model that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment to value based actions to help increase psychological flexibility and overall well-being. The aim of the sessions is to offer a space to explore and notice how the human mind works in relation to the body and physical sensations. These sessions encourage exploration in small steps and are developed through self guided practices. Noticing and identifying thoughts, feelings, physical sensations is the first movement towards reducing anxiety. The course will consist of psycho-education, discussion, reflections and exercises. These activities will take place within the group, and may include break out groups, depending upon the larger group size. The facilitator will make use of metaphors and scenarios to illustrate the core skills and will invite participants to practice becoming aware of ‘towards’ and ‘away’ moves using a matrix system. Participants are invited to engage in the exercises, which are invitational practices; participants do not need to engage in exercises if they do not wish to do so. Home practice will be encouraged in-between sessions.

When we may be struggling to put meaning to things, or trouble verbalising our feelings, collage and mixed media can help us interpret our unconscious thoughts and mirror our emotions. Collage is a great form of art therapy, especially for those who may be feeling intimidated by other artistic processes. On this course you will learn how to apply drawing skills by adding mixed media, collage and some basic printmaking techniques. Either as a beginner or someone who has tackled the basics of drawing but would like to continue and don’t quite know where to start, this course allows for plenty of creativity with experimental and stimulating short projects. The course will playfully guide you how to create your own powerful images and explore the history of collage. No artistic skills required, just a willingness to be open to exploring and creating.

Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

This practice is an essential part of the Mindfulness toolkit because it's something we can do either in small bite sizes throughout the day (a pause on the bus or few deep breaths in a queue), or as a longer meditation. On this course, we will experiment with both. There will also be time for questions and sharing.

This group is a remote offer, which requires internet connection, access to Zoom and a confidential space. The group is rooted in principles of ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy); an empirically based model that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment to value based actions to help increase psychological flexibility and overall well-being. The aim of the sessions is to offer a space to explore and notice how the human mind works in relation to the body and physical sensations. These sessions encourage exploration in small steps and are developed through self guided practices. Noticing and identifying thoughts, feelings, physical sensations is the first movement towards reducing anxiety. The course will consist of psycho-education, discussion, reflections and exercises. These activities will take place within the group, and may include break out groups, depending upon the larger group size. The facilitator will make use of metaphors and scenarios to illustrate the core skills and will invite participants to practice becoming aware of ‘towards’ and ‘away’ moves using a matrix system. Participants are invited to engage in the exercises, which are invitational practices; participants do not need to engage in exercises if they do not wish to do so. Home practice will be encouraged in-between sessions.

With plenty of hands-on exercises, this course will introduce you into all what you need to know when you sketch, or paint from observation. You will learn specific techniques by looking at watercolour artists so that by the end of the course, you will have the skill-set that allows you to continue independently with your work. The course is suitable for people who may have done a watercolours course before, or those with some previous experience, who would like to build on their existing skills.

Centre for Better Health
CBH Art Room 1a Darnley Road

When we may be struggling to put meaning to things, or trouble verbalising our feelings, collage and mixed media can help us interpret our unconscious thoughts and mirror our emotions. Collage is a great form of art therapy, especially for those who may be feeling intimidated by other artistic processes. On this course you will learn how to apply drawing skills by adding mixed media, collage and some basic printmaking techniques. Either as a beginner or someone who has tackled the basics of drawing but would like to continue and don’t quite know where to start, this course allows for plenty of creativity with experimental and stimulating short projects. The course will playfully guide you how to create your own powerful images and explore the history of collage. No artistic skills required, just a willingness to be open to exploring and creating.

Patchwork, can increase positive emotions and lessen depressive symptoms, whilst engaging in an old tradition. Patchwork can give you a sense of 'being in the flow', as you lose yourself in the creative process of using needle and thread, to sew colourful shapes of material together, to create a pattern. By focusing on the creative process of sewing different coloured fabrics together, it can be both psychologically uplifting and pleasing to the eye. Join us on this 7 week course where you will be guided through the process of creating patchworks from patterns, where you can be creative in a safe, friendly space. No experience is necessary.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

In this six-week course, we will tap into one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms: YOUR BREATH. Breathwork is a healing tool that we all have but poorly use which is free, healthy, and always with us. We normally underestimate how breathing correctly can affect our mind, body, and spirit. It can connect the body to the healing parasympathetic nervous system which will restore and rejuvenate your being as a whole. Breathwork involves breathing in a conscious and systematic way, we intentionally change our breathing patterns. During the course, I will guide you through different breathwork sequences blended with mindfulness and bodywork. We will explore how we can safely use our own breath and body to practically collaborate with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety

This group is a remote offer, which requires internet connection, access to Zoom and a confidential space. The group is rooted in principles of ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy); an empirically based model that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment to value based actions to help increase psychological flexibility and overall well-being. The aim of the sessions is to offer a space to explore and notice how the human mind works in relation to the body and physical sensations. These sessions encourage exploration in small steps and are developed through self guided practices. Noticing and identifying thoughts, feelings, physical sensations is the first movement towards reducing anxiety. The course will consist of psycho-education, discussion, reflections and exercises. These activities will take place within the group, and may include break out groups, depending upon the larger group size. The facilitator will make use of metaphors and scenarios to illustrate the core skills and will invite participants to practice becoming aware of ‘towards’ and ‘away’ moves using a matrix system. Participants are invited to engage in the exercises, which are invitational practices; participants do not need to engage in exercises if they do not wish to do so. Home practice will be encouraged in-between sessions.

When we may be struggling to put meaning to things, or trouble verbalising our feelings, collage and mixed media can help us interpret our unconscious thoughts and mirror our emotions. Collage is a great form of art therapy, especially for those who may be feeling intimidated by other artistic processes. On this course you will learn how to apply drawing skills by adding mixed media, collage and some basic printmaking techniques. Either as a beginner or someone who has tackled the basics of drawing but would like to continue and don’t quite know where to start, this course allows for plenty of creativity with experimental and stimulating short projects. The course will playfully guide you how to create your own powerful images and explore the history of collage. No artistic skills required, just a willingness to be open to exploring and creating.

Event Type: Mental Health,
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

CBH, 1a Darnley Road Gallery Space

In this six-week course, we will tap into one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms: YOUR BREATH. Breathwork is a healing tool that we all have but poorly use which is free, healthy, and always with us. We normally underestimate how breathing correctly can affect our mind, body, and spirit. It can connect the body to the healing parasympathetic nervous system which will restore and rejuvenate your being as a whole. Breathwork involves breathing in a conscious and systematic way, we intentionally change our breathing patterns. During the course, I will guide you through different breathwork sequences blended with mindfulness and bodywork. We will explore how we can safely use our own breath and body to practically collaborate with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety

This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

In this six-week course, we will tap into one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms: YOUR BREATH. Breathwork is a healing tool that we all have but poorly use which is free, healthy, and always with us. We normally underestimate how breathing correctly can affect our mind, body, and spirit. It can connect the body to the healing parasympathetic nervous system which will restore and rejuvenate your being as a whole. Breathwork involves breathing in a conscious and systematic way, we intentionally change our breathing patterns. During the course, I will guide you through different breathwork sequences blended with mindfulness and bodywork. We will explore how we can safely use our own breath and body to practically collaborate with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety

Event Type: Mental Health,
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

In this six-week course, we will tap into one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms: YOUR BREATH. Breathwork is a healing tool that we all have but poorly use which is free, healthy, and always with us. We normally underestimate how breathing correctly can affect our mind, body, and spirit. It can connect the body to the healing parasympathetic nervous system which will restore and rejuvenate your being as a whole. Breathwork involves breathing in a conscious and systematic way, we intentionally change our breathing patterns. During the course, I will guide you through different breathwork sequences blended with mindfulness and bodywork. We will explore how we can safely use our own breath and body to practically collaborate with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety

In this six-week course, we will tap into one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms: YOUR BREATH. Breathwork is a healing tool that we all have but poorly use which is free, healthy, and always with us. We normally underestimate how breathing correctly can affect our mind, body, and spirit. It can connect the body to the healing parasympathetic nervous system which will restore and rejuvenate your being as a whole. Breathwork involves breathing in a conscious and systematic way, we intentionally change our breathing patterns. During the course, I will guide you through different breathwork sequences blended with mindfulness and bodywork. We will explore how we can safely use our own breath and body to practically collaborate with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. The heart of MBCT is gentle, systematic training in Mindfulness .A definition of mindfulness is being able to bring direct, open hearted awareness to what you are doing , while you are doing it. Being able to tune in to what’s going on in your mind and body, and in the outside world, moment by moment. This skill is developed through formal and informal mindfulness practices during the course including , body scan , breath and body and sitting practices , alongside informal practices including mindful eating and walking. MBCT focusses on teaching participants to make a shift in their relationship to the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that contribute to depressive relapse and other emotional problems. This enables the participants to be released from the grip of two critical processes that lie in the root of depression and many other emotional problems: The tendency to overthink, ruminate, or worry too much about some things, coupled with a Tendency to avoid, suppress or push away other things. Regular mindfulness practice enables participants to see and understand how these patterns of mind can lead to escalation of emotions; Through this awareness and understanding this supports them to see more clearly what is present and make wiser choices in their daily life. The key objective of the course is to train participants in the fundamentals of mindfulness to incorporate ideas & practices into their daily life, giving them the skills to help support them manage life's ups and downs more effectively.
