Course Description

We are in a time of unprecedented change and uncertainty. Soon all of us find ourselves at home for 4 weeks or maybe more. We are already experiencing major changes in health risks, the global economy, job security, childcare, social interaction, the stock market, pensions and changes in how we work. These unexpected and impactful changes are all happening at once and it makes perfect sense that they will lead to high levels of stress and anxiety putting incredible pressure on our mental health.

Now more than ever the world needs mindfulness

Mindfulness is a practical, readily available tool to reduce stress and anxiety and support your mental health. Mindfulness is research-based and easy to practice at home by yourself or with the family (it is suitable to do with your kids). With this 4 - week online mindfulness course, developed by Clinical Psychologist Chantal Hofstee, you can equip yourself with effective techniques and strategies to:

- Reduce stress and anxiety                    
- Protect your mental health
- Process emotions
- Get on top of worrying
- Help yourself cope with the changes in the best possible way

- Do something for you in this difficult time

There has never been a better time to learn mindfulness

Mindfulness won't change the facts of what is happening in the world but it can change how you cope with the uncertainty and that can make all the difference. The online Mindfulness course teaches you the most useful mindfulness techniques for times of change, uncertainty and stress in a step by step guide made up out of:

  • Videos   
  • Text
  • Questions for personal insights
  • Step by step guide to the mindfulness techniques
  • Practical tips          
  • Guided mindfulness exercises soundtracks for your phone

After taking the course you will have a toolkit of stress management techniques that will help you navigate these uncertain times in the best way possible.
