Feeling stressed? Mindfulness-based stress reduction training can help you live in the moment, calm your mind and reduce anxiety.
Learn to relax with a mindfulness stress reduction course
Become more aware of your thoughts, feelings and emotions when you take a mindfulness based stress reduction class with Highbrook.
Our supportive experts will show you ways to boost your mental wellbeing using evidence-based mindfulness stress reduction training.
Mindfulness has been found to:
- reduce stress and anxiety
- improve your physical health
- boost your overall wellbeing
- help treat mental health conditions
- reduce your incidence of certain stress-related diseases
Furthermore, mindfulness can help you to accept your experiences, particularly painful feelings and memories. If you use other types of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, this can work successfully in conjunction with our mindfulness stress reduction course.

When can you benefit from mindfulness stress reduction training?
Life can feel very busy and stressful.
When you are rushing around trying to complete all your tasks, stress and worry can feel overwhelming. You can become disconnected from your positive feelings like joy, happiness and fun.
Even when you’re doing something that should feel fun, it can be tough to switch off your brain and appreciate the moment.
That’s where mindfulness based stress reduction training can help. You can learn the principles of mindfulness, which you can then apply every day to support your overall wellbeing.
