Workshops & Courses

  • Mindfulness Taster - 45 miniuites

    Our tendency is to let our negative thoughts run away with us, such that we become disconnected from the real world, ruminating and brooding on only our failures and weaknesses. This type of thinking can lead to fatigue, stress and anxiety. If we let this type of thinking go further it can cause us to feel low or depressed. Being aware of our feelings, thoughts, and our breathing in the present moment can help us quiet down the negative chitter-chatter, helping us to be more relaxed and alert. This type of awareness comes from the ancient discipline of mindfulness. Mark Williams, professor of clinical psychology at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre says "When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience afresh many things in the world around us that we have been taking for granted," to experience the power of Mindfulness in 3 minutes.

  • Equine Assisted Mindfulness - full day (may also be done as half day option)

    Horses are instinctive and intuitive and they willingly engage with us when we are present, mindful, and harmonious. Horses are ‘in the moment’ animals; they don’t care who you are or where you came from to get here. They give us the opportunity to use metaphorical learning by mirroring your body language to show how they feel you are relating to them at that exact moment. We are fortunate to have a working with us an Equine therapist who has studied natural horsemanship methods for 20 years and in that time has recognised the value of how the horses relate to your body language and back to you.

    From £90.00 per person.

Testimonials

"Our business required some ad hoc occupational health advice and we came across Marie Church CBT following a strong recommendation from another company. Marie and her team guided us through the referral process and our query was dealt with in a prompt, confidential and professional manner. The advice given was very clear and relevant to our manual work environment. I would definitely recommend Marie Church CBT to any business who is looking for occupational health support whether it be on an adhoc or contractual basis. - Armstrong & Son Ltd ."
