Mindfulness based counseling service provider Mindfulness for Health has recently announced the inception of their customized MBCT for Healthcare Professionals course. Mindfulness for Health is quickly gaining popularity for their top class mindfulness training programs that are created to serve the unique requirements of individuals and professionals from different fields. According to official sources, Mindfulness for Health has already completed their first 8-week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Healthcare Professionals with flying colors. Inspired by this highly successful launch, the company has also begun the second program.
Mindfulness may be defined as a practice of non-judgmental awareness of the present moment with acceptance and openness. It has been clinically established that mindfulness based counseling and training can bring about a plethora of positive outcomes for people suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, depression and many other health conditions. Mindfulness practice helps to focus and stabilize the mind, allowing insight and clarity to arise. This, in turn, leads to increased self-awareness, resulting in less emotional reactivity. There is also evidence that it can help nurture a stronger and healthier brain.
Angie Kingma is the key person behind the highly useful and successful counseling and training programs created by Mindfulness for Health. Angie is an Occupational Therapist with an illustrious career spanning over thirteen years in home care, in-patient psychiatry and out-patient psychiatry (Mood and Anxiety Clinic). She is an exponent of different psychotherapeutic approaches and techniques with a special focus on mindfulness-based and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions.
A number of healthcare professionals and hospitals now understand how their workforce can benefit from MBCT for Healthcare Professionals. Trillium Health Partners, a leading group of hospitals with an excellent track record in terms of patient care and performance, was the first organization to partner with Mindfulness for Health.
Officially announcing this partnership, Angie Kingma said, “Mindfulness for Health is very excited and honoured to partner with Trillium Health Partners to provide Mindfulness Training to their staff in the Diabetes Management Centre. Due to a huge demand and interest in the training, additional groups are receiving training in MBCT for Healthcare Professionals in order to build and enhance their own personal and professional fortitude.”
