The Melbourne mindfulness institute offers therapy and training to individuals and to groups.
We also provide a range of ongoing support services to help people to maintain their mindfulness skills and sustain well-being.
Training, therapy and group mindfulness sessions
We provide training in MiCBT for individual clients, and therapy typically lasts for 8-10 weeks but may take longer depending on the complexity and severity of the problems. Medicare rebates are available of those with medical referral. To discuss your needs do give us a call.
Groups are offered throughout the year. A group program is 8 weeks in duration and requires considerable commitment – commitment to daily mindfulness meditation practice (we strongly recommend two half hour practices each day) and to attending the weekly two hour classes. We have been running groups since 2009 and the feedback is always very positive. Our recent research is confirming that the program enables significant change.
Consolidating one’s mindfulness meditation practice can be extremely useful. We offer free monthly after work sessions (3rd Thursday of the month at 5pm) as well as our full afternoon sessions. These provide a much needed mini-break in stressful or exhausting times. We offer several of these sessions each year and encourage those who have experienced the benefits of MiCBT practice to come along.
2020 Program Dates
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation we are currently only offering online programs.
We would also like to offer some day programs so please get in touch if you would like to attend a day time course.
To assist those needing support in these difficult times, we have increased the frequency of our free one-hour group meditation sessions, which take place on the third Thursday of each month. We are now offering twice weekly sessions online.
Our Saturday Mini Retreats are also going online this year.
