“The sea mist cleared, and a new and brighter world unfolded”


Mindfulness is a potentially life-changing way to alter our feelings in positive ways, and an ever-expanding body of scientific evidence shows that it really does work, not just for depression but also to help people deal with anxiety, as well as emotional and physical pain.


Mindfulness training helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings so that instead of being overwhelmed by them, we are better able to manage them. Taking a course in Mindfulness can help people to have a real understanding of their emotions, boost their focus and concentration and even improve their relationships.


What We Offer

Mindfulness Newlyn covers the Mindfulness Now programme, offering a fusion of mindfulness-based approaches including evidenced-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

Mindfulness Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness Cognitive Therapy, developed by Dr Mark Williams and colleagues of the University of Oxford and the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, offers a breakthrough in the clinical treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence as a treatment of choice for depression.

The Mindfulness Now Programme

The Mindfulness Now Programme was developed by Nick Cooke after his own experience of using mindfulness to help with his recovery and rehabilitation, including management of pain, following two serious illnesses. He already had considerable experience of learning and practicing mindfulness and, as a therapist it is something which for many years, he has taught clients to practice.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

In 1979, Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre – Stress Reduction Clinic began developing a psychoeducational programme which became known as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). This provides an integration of mindfulness meditation with proven psychotherapeutic approaches into an accessible and evidence-based approach which has been taught worldwide.

Mindfulness Now accredited teachers offer one-to-one, as well as group, sessions in mindfulness-based practices. As well as teaching mindfulness meditation for relaxation, treatments are offered for stress reduction, anxiety, panic attacks, emotional trauma, and pain control, including the eight weeks mindfulness for wellbeing programme.
