Applications and approaches for mental health and beyond
Breakdown to mindfulness techniques such as meditation

Careers in mindfulness
We will dive into each mindfulness technique individually so you will understand how things like noticing, detaching, labelling, breath and body scans work. In addition to understanding mindfulness, you will gain valuable teaching skills for writing practices and delivering them to others.
In approaches to mindfulness, we'll explore how it is used from historical contexts to programmes such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and third-wave cognitive behavioural therapies such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). In applications, we'll look at how mindfulness is applied to a range of mental health and physical health conditions.
Each module is assessed by a multiple-choice exam. By the end of the course, you'll earn a certificate accredited by the International Association of Therapists.
Taught by Chris Worfolk, psychologist, co-owner of the Leeds Anxiety Clinic and author of Do More, Worry Less.
This course takes a deep dive into mindfulness. If you would prefer a broader course on meditation, you may wish to consider my Meditation Teacher Training course instead. It won't cover anywhere near as much detail but will explore a range of meditation techniques as well as the historical context. Both courses complement each other and all of the lessons are recorded separately for each course.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to deepen their own practice of mindfulness
- Anyone who wants to teach mindfulness to others
