Nick Cooke developed the Mindfulness Now programme after his own experience of using mindfulness to help him with his recovery and rehabilitation, managing the pain and coping with the subsequent trauma, following two very serious illnesses. He already had considerable experience of learning and practicing mindfulness meditation himself and, as a therapist, it’s something which for many years he has taught clients to practice.
Mindfulness Now offers a psycho-educational fusion of mindfulness-based approaches including the evidence-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The latter, developed by Professor Mark Williams and colleagues at the University of Oxford, offers a breakthrough in the treatment of depression, anxiety and emotional trauma, and is recommended by NICE as a treatment of choice for depression.
In 1979 Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre – Stress Reduction Clinic developed a psycho-educational programme called Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which provides an integration of mindfulness meditation with proven psychotherapeutic approaches into an accessible and evidence-based approach which has been taught worldwide.
The Mindfulness Now Programme offers the latest in modern scientific approaches to teaching mindfulness, including some of the latest research into neuroplasticity, proudly leading the way in delivering trauma informed mindfulness and is constantly evolving and moving forward to meet the ever changing needs of society.
