About Us

Welcome to the Mindfulness-based approaches e-handbook.  Inside you will find the information to support you when developing and running mindfulness-based courses, as well as resources for participants on an 8 week mindfulness-based course, in particular MBCT.   

This handbook is divided in to three areas:

  1. Information for people with a general interest in, or wanting to refer someone to a course. 
  2. Information for people developing and running courses within the NHS.
  3. Information for individuals participating in a course.

Each part of this handbook contains resources, contact information, links to relevant documents and podcasts as well as news about upcoming events.

Part 2 and 3 also contain handouts for MBCT and audio recordings.

The resources in part 2 of this handbook should only be used by clinicians who are adhering to the NES Good Practice Guidelines for mindfulness-based approaches.  It is important that part 3 of this handbook is used only by people who are currently on the NHSGGC MBCT course, or who have completed it.  For these reasons, parts 2 and 3 are password protected.  Please ask your course facilitator or your local NHS Mindfulness Lead for the password.

The e-handbook can be used when you are not connected to the Internet.  The e-handbook can be downloaded to your smart phone, PC or tablet and you can access the resources on the app even when you are not online.  However, links to online resources will not be available when you are offline.  It is important to log on to the app every now and again when you are connected to the Internet to ensure your app gets updated.
