Mindfulness is a way of focusing on the present moment, often practised by paying attention to the breath as a form of meditation.
Practising mindfulness can give people more insight into their emotions, boost their attention and concentration and improve their emotional wellbeing by helping with stress, anxiety, and depression.
It can also help with physical health problems, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic pain.
Healthy Minds offers courses that teach people how to practice mindfulness. These are usually eight-week courses with a two hour session per week.
For one to one counselling Topaz Wellbeing Centre can be contacted on 0161 330 9223 for self referral.
