The Mindfulness Now Programme
Individual 1-to-1 or group sessions in mindfulness-based practices
The Mindfulness Now programme is aimed at individuals and groups, adults and children, with many requirements including helping with stress and anxiety, physical and emotional pain, as well as emotional resilience. The programme provides a fusion of key elements from MBSR and MBCT in a clinical approach which is simple to integrate with other therapeutic approaches.
The Mindfulness Now programme is fully adaptable to meet the needs of different participants. The Mindfulness Now programme can work over 8 sessions but can also work well arranged over a smaller number of sessions. It works well delivered one to one, or even informally via drop in type group.

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.
