1. Postnatal Depression Awareness: Learn How To Recognize Early Signs of Postnatal Depression

The course introduces the topic of postnatal depression or PND (also known as postpartum depression or PPD) by explaining what it is, how it occurs and how it effects people, along with providing facts and figures.

This course discusses postnatal/postpartum depression in detail, covering all aspects, in order to provide an understanding of how it can be treated or prevented. The course covers how to recognise early signs and symptoms, causes, effects, and prevention, and also includes case studies of those who have overcome the condition.

Focus is placed on the changes that mothers go through during and after childbirth, as well as the changes in mindset and behaviours of both parents once the child is born. You will learn about the factors that can determine the likelihood that an individual may suffer from the illness and to what extent, and how postnatal depression differs from other forms of depression. The benefit of this insight is an improved ability to recognise the condition, for the purposes of prevention or early diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is reliant on recognising the signs and symptoms that are indicative of postnatal depression. This important information is shared in the course, as it outlines the behavioural, emotional and physical changes that a mother suffering from postnatal depression will experience, as well as explaining the effects of these. The course also details the effects that are not as obvious, such as the damaging effects that can occur in the relationship between the couple and with the infant.

Why some people suffer from postnatal depression is an important question to answer when putting preventative measures in place. The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course sets about answering this by giving detailed explanations of all the possible reasons. This considers social, emotional and psychological factors, along with any history of any type of depression and previous postnatal depression.

Should you, your partner or your client be suffering from the condition, the course guides you through a number of methods and techniques that can help an individual to overcome postnatal depression. How to go about seeking help from external sources, such as professionals, and the kinds of medicine that are available to help treat this illness, are also explained. Pre-emptive measures are explained in the form of a list of Dos and Don’ts, which can be put in place if you are at risk of suffering from the condition or start to become symptomatic.

In addition to the information about postnatal depression itself, the course also provides a number of case studies. These give a clear view of the condition, from people who have lived through it, explaining what they felt at the time and how they overcame it. The aim here is to reassure those with the condition that others have been there before and that steps can be taken to get better.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course will be beneficial to those who are at risk of getting or who are already suffering from the condition, and their partner, close family members and friends who wish to support them.

Anyone who is a coach or therapist (or is training to be one) will also gain a lot from this course, especially as it outlines how coaching/therapy can be applied in this context.

Students will learn about depression types and the symptoms of each.

4. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD Awareness: Learn About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the condition, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course teaches students about how it occurs, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and the various treatment techniques available.

This course is also designed to help you on your way towards working within this area.

Separated into 2 distinct sections, the 1st section of this course provides information about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and what those with the condition can do to lessen its effects on their lives. The 2nd section of the course teaches students about the various treatment methods available and the training pathways you can follow to become a therapist working with those who have PTSD.

There is a lot that is misunderstood about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that this course hopes to clarify. Students will be provided with relevant facts that explain who can get the condition and how, a description of the symptoms affiliated with PTSD, and what to expect from a diagnosis.

Thankfully there is now a wide range of treatments available to sufferers of PTSD, with options including clinical, medical, and complementary treatments. This course guides students through a number of treatments, explaining the differences and benefits of each. In addition, there are also a number of self-help activities, which will also be discussed, that have proven to significantly ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course describes practical steps that can be taken by an individual, to become more involved with friends, family, the workplace, and society as a whole.

As mentioned earlier, students will be exposed to the role of a therapist working with those with PTSD. This includes understanding the process of diagnosis and typical treatment plans, as well as understanding what the role involves, the skills needed, and training pathways. Although there are many different specialists working to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD in their patients, this course goes into detail about 3 specific areas: Trauma-Informed Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to teaching students about the role of therapists and the types of treatments that can be provided, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course also discusses the routes that can be followed to become an expert in the area of PTSD.

5. Advanced CBT: The Therapy Of Choice For Medical Practitioners 

Our feelings and emotions influence how we deal with every event. Negative emotions can adversely affect any part of our lives. For example, a woman who has suffered physical abuse feels she can no longer cope because her self-esteem has become so low. CBT helps her to picture certain situations she faces and to examine the thought processes that convince her she is not equipped with the necessary skills or confidence.

One of the main reasons is it is such a popular therapy, apart from its convincing results, is the fact treatment tends to be over a very short term and focused on a specific problem. This makes it very accessible, at a cost that people can afford. CBT is a ‘here and now’ therapy that concentrates on a negative feeling or behaviour led by a destructive thought pattern, and how to change this process to move the person’s life forward and beyond the behaviour.

A person’s distorted thinking pattern can bring an altered view of the world and this, in turn, can cause feelings of despair, depression, anxiety, frustration, and anger. CBT is a powerful therapy that can realign the poor thought patterns and therefore, improve the life of the sufferer in the long term.

6. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT: Understand Your Feelings And Thoughts Through CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that is commonly used to help people understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviours. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including depression, addictions, anxiety and phobias.

The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behaviour. For example, a person who spends a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents and other air disasters may find themselves avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behaviour therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.

Who would benefit from this course?

Cognitive and behavioural psychotherapies are a range of therapies based on concepts and principles derived from psychological models of human emotion and behaviour.

They include a wide range of treatment approaches for emotional disorders, along a continuum from structured individual psychotherapy to self-help material.

This course is ideal for those that are either complete beginners to the field of CBT and are considering making a career change to become a CBT Therapist, with the aim of getting an insight and understanding of CBT, or existing CBT Therapists, teachers, coaches or parents looking to reinforce their knowledge or to pick up some new skills. This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career in CBT, though are unsure if you want to commit yourself financially and time wise to a full CBT qualification.

7. Mindfulness Based CBT: Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

8. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy DBT: How To Manage Your Emotions And Deal With Others Better 

DBT is a practical, hands-on therapy which can be used to help everyone, even you don’t have a mood disorder. From this course you will learn about emotions and how to change them, become more able to interact better with others, be more mindful, and learn how to handle difficult situations proficiently.

The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course begins by outlining what DBT is, why and how it was developed (including a little about its creator, Marsha M Linehan), and how it is used. From this foundational knowledge, you’ll quickly gain an understanding of the therapy and the benefits of learning and using DBT Skills.

The course looks at the causes and reasons for emotional suffering and how ineffective behaviours develop. You’ll gain a greater understanding of Emotion Dysregulation, including physical reasons that it may occur and how it can affect a person’s personal and professional life.

Taking you step-by-step through DBT’s modular treatment program, you’ll learn how and why it is structured in the way it is, along with the various issues that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy can alleviate. Part of this explanation will take you through the four stages that you can go through when learning DBT.

You’ll learn some of the general guidelines and goals of undertaking DBT. You’ll discover the ways in which Dialectical Behaviour Therapy differs to other forms of therapy and how it can be added to other wellness programs. The course also highlights some issues to consider when learning about this therapy.

Along with providing a lot of introductory information on DBT, you are also provided with a first-day crash course orientation, to get you involved with the practice quickly. From this, you’ll learn skills that help with Emotion Regulation and will be more able to create goals for yourself to reach while studying the course.

The course expands on your knowledge by providing an analytical tool that will assist you in determining the causes of negative behaviours. This method breaks down each event that occurs before, during, and after the problem behaviour arises – giving you the full scope of how it occurred.

It is important to gain a good comprehension of Mindfulness as it provides the foundation for other skills involved in DBT. Trying to practice these other skills without also practising Mindfulness can be difficult, so a detailed explanation of the mindfulness is provided, which also includes worksheets so that you can practice what you’ve learned.

From learning Emotion Regulation Skills, you will better understand emotions and the methods used to change them. As part of this, you will be able to name emotions, check facts to see if an emotion fits a situation, and how to use Problem Solving to change feelings.

A challenging behaviour to change is how you react to difficult circumstances, in the moment. The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course teaches Distress Tolerances Skills that will help you to help alleviate suffering while you are in the moment – making these occurrences easier to handle.

This course will show you how to improve your Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills through DBT – creating, maintaining, and navigating relationships effectively. You will also learn Walking the Middle Path Skills, which is a set of 3 skills that help you manage yourself and your relationships at the same time.

To augment what you have learnt, the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course explains how to conduct a typical session between individuals. The course also provides two patient examples and a review of the issues that can occur during group sessions, and how, as a group leader, you should handle them.

Who would benefit from the course?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) has been designed to ease the effects of depression, anxiety, stress, inner chaos, moodiness, impulsiveness, and self-destructiveness, as well as helping us to improve our relationships. It is also used to treat substance abuse, PTSD, and eating disorders.

With this in mind, the course is perfect for those affected by the various conditions above to study, as well as for therapists wishing to add to their existing skills profile. However, the ability to understand and change our emotions, gain improved interpersonal relationships, handle stressful situations better, and be more mindful every day, are traits we can all use.

9. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR: Combat Negative Thoughts Through MBSR

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course has been created to give those who suffer from stress, whether constantly or occasionally, the tools to combat negative thoughts and turn the mind into a weapon of positivity that will help you to reclaim your life.

The course does this through giving you both the knowledge of how and why certain techniques work along with how to do them and incorporate them easily into your daily routine.

We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times in our lives. For some, this is a fleeting condition that comes and goes with particular life events for others it is a daily struggle whose affects can be debilitating and hard to overcome; building up until even usually insignificant things can seem impossible to get through. No matter how often you feel the affects of stress and how powerfully, stress is a state of mind, which, left unchecked, can quickly turn into a physical condition.

The course gives students an in-depth look into what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is. This includes information on its origins and the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation and their affects on the mind and body. Students are invited to practice mindfulness following exercises.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course covers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation; explaining what they are, the differences between them (and how phrases like ‘mindfulness meditation’ can be confusing), and the benefits to your mind and body of practising each.

Stress and anxiety create a negative chemical change in your brain, in a similar, but opposite, way practising mediation and being mindful can also create a positive chemical change. Students will learn exactly what these changes are, and will be introduced to more techniques that will help them to cultivate the habits of meditation and mindfulness.

For chronic sufferers of stress, the reaction to negative triggers can have damaging affects on the body and mind. The MBSR Course discusses these effects and, conversely, the positive effects of a mindful practice, along with imparting practical techniques that can be employed the moment the feeling of stress comes on.

Students are provided with practical, illustrated yoga techniques that they can practice themselves and combine with mediation techniques, to more affectively de-stress both the mind and the body. Stress can easily manifest itself as a result of miscommunication with the people in your life or because an individual finds it difficult to communication certain things.You will learn how to become a better at communicating so that conflicts can be rectified before they can become lasting problems.

As mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is at the core of this course, students will be guided through the structure of an 8-week programme in MBCT. This imparts not only a theoretical knowledge but a practical one also.

Knowing that there are so many people who have been where you’ve been and want to be, where you are now can inspire you to want to help others. With this in mind this course guides students through setting up their own MBSR practice, should they wish to impart their newly-found knowledge and make it an even bigger part of their lives.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Certificate Course is something that can benefit everyone, though the focus is on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and/or depression, and want to be able to help themselves in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic/medicine-free.

The course will also be beneficial to those who know someone who is going through the aforementioned conditions and may wish to study with them, as a support to them. Likewise, the course proves as an excellent study source for those in caring professions and those who wish to use what they have learned to help in their careers.

10. Mindfulness: Manage Stress And Anxiety Through Mindfulness 

How to manage stress and anxiety in yourself and others, by adopting a Mindful approach

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self-management of anxiety and stress.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the workplace and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach to life.

To do this you should begin to observe the ‘self’ and any reactions to situations and others in a dispassionate way. In other words, not be a slave to our own thoughts and the emotions that they generate, but to step back and assess before the usual reaction takes place.

Mindfulness is about taking a ‘holistic’ approach to mind, body and spirit. So to fully practice Mindfulness, it is important to look at oneself as a spiritual being. Because of this new outlook, practices such as Meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi can also be utilised to bring calm and peace to the mind and body, while employing a more detached and philosophical-spiritual outlook.

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Whether you are looking to use the Mindfulness techniques to help yourself or others, upon completion of this course you can work as a Mindfulness Practitioner either on a 1-2-1 basis or with groups of people, either in a therapy practice or in the workplace.

Who would benefit from this course?

The practice of mindfulness is something that everyone can benefit from. Being able to consider a situation and your own thoughts before acting is a powerful skill. It can aid you in both your personal and professional life – giving you the ability to make decisions based on fact, rather than emotion.

The course is particularly useful to those with conditions such as depression, stress, and anxiety, as it provides practical techniques to overcome negative thoughts and feelings, in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic.

Upon successful completion of the Mindfulness Certificate Course, you can work as a Mindfulness Practitioner either on a 1-2-1 basis or with groups of people. Counsellors, practitioners, and other mental health professionals will be able to use the knowledge gained in the course to better help their patients, by offering a holistic approach to health care that has proven results.

1. Postnatal Depression Awareness: Learn How To Recognize Early Signs of Postnatal Depression

The course introduces the topic of postnatal depression or PND (also known as postpartum depression or PPD) by explaining what it is, how it occurs and how it effects people, along with providing facts and figures.

This course discusses postnatal/postpartum depression in detail, covering all aspects, in order to provide an understanding of how it can be treated or prevented. The course covers how to recognise early signs and symptoms, causes, effects, and prevention, and also includes case studies of those who have overcome the condition.

Focus is placed on the changes that mothers go through during and after childbirth, as well as the changes in mindset and behaviours of both parents once the child is born. You will learn about the factors that can determine the likelihood that an individual may suffer from the illness and to what extent, and how postnatal depression differs from other forms of depression. The benefit of this insight is an improved ability to recognise the condition, for the purposes of prevention or early diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is reliant on recognising the signs and symptoms that are indicative of postnatal depression. This important information is shared in the course, as it outlines the behavioural, emotional and physical changes that a mother suffering from postnatal depression will experience, as well as explaining the effects of these. The course also details the effects that are not as obvious, such as the damaging effects that can occur in the relationship between the couple and with the infant.

Why some people suffer from postnatal depression is an important question to answer when putting preventative measures in place. The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course sets about answering this by giving detailed explanations of all the possible reasons. This considers social, emotional and psychological factors, along with any history of any type of depression and previous postnatal depression.

Should you, your partner or your client be suffering from the condition, the course guides you through a number of methods and techniques that can help an individual to overcome postnatal depression. How to go about seeking help from external sources, such as professionals, and the kinds of medicine that are available to help treat this illness, are also explained. Pre-emptive measures are explained in the form of a list of Dos and Don’ts, which can be put in place if you are at risk of suffering from the condition or start to become symptomatic.

In addition to the information about postnatal depression itself, the course also provides a number of case studies. These give a clear view of the condition, from people who have lived through it, explaining what they felt at the time and how they overcame it. The aim here is to reassure those with the condition that others have been there before and that steps can be taken to get better.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Postnatal Depression Awareness Certificate Course will be beneficial to those who are at risk of getting or who are already suffering from the condition, and their partner, close family members and friends who wish to support them.

Anyone who is a coach or therapist (or is training to be one) will also gain a lot from this course, especially as it outlines how coaching/therapy can be applied in this context.

Covering 5 distinct areas within the topic of depression, these being: the causes, types, medications, complementary alternative therapies used and counselling approaches.

The course goes deep into what the causes of depression are: including the emotional changes, psychological changes to the brain, and the environmental factors that can lead to depression. Also discussed are the diseases and illnesses related to depression, risk factors, and how analysing sleep patterns/problems can help a counsellor ascertain the kind of depression an individual has.

‘Depression’ is not stand alone diagnosis, as the term covers numerous types of the condition, with a varying scale of severity. Looking at the various depression rating scales and how they subdivide depressive episodes and symptoms into levels of affliction. Students will learn about depression types and the symptoms of each.

4. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD Awareness: Learn About Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Aimed at those with little or no knowledge of the condition, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course teaches students about how it occurs, how it is diagnosed, the symptoms, and the various treatment techniques available.

This course is also designed to help you on your way towards working within this area.

The 2nd section of the course teaches students about the various treatment methods available and the training pathways you can follow to become a therapist working with those who have PTSD.

There is a lot that is misunderstood about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that this course hopes to clarify. Students will be provided with relevant facts that explain who can get the condition and how, a description of the symptoms affiliated with PTSD, and what to expect from a diagnosis.

Thankfully there is now a wide range of treatments available to sufferers of PTSD, with options including clinical, medical, and complementary treatments. This course guides students through a number of treatments, explaining the differences and benefits of each. In addition, there are also a number of self-help activities, which will also be discussed, that have proven to significantly ease the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Even with the various treatments and self-help practices available to them, it can still be very difficult for someone afflicted by PTSD to engage with the world around them. The Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Certificate Course describes practical steps that can be taken by an individual, to become more involved with friends, family, the workplace, and society as a whole.

As mentioned earlier, students will be exposed to the role of a therapist working with those with PTSD.

Although there are many different specialists working to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD in their patients, this course goes into detail about 3 specific areas: Trauma-Informed Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to teaching students about the role of therapists and the types of treatments that can be provided, the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Course also discusses the routes that can be followed to become an expert in the area of PTSD.

5. Advanced CBT: The Therapy Of Choice For Medical Practitioners 

Our feelings and emotions influence how we deal with every event. Negative emotions can adversely affect any part of our lives. For example, a woman who has suffered physical abuse feels she can no longer cope because her self-esteem has become so low. CBT helps her to picture certain situations she faces and to examine the thought processes that convince her she is not equipped with the necessary skills or confidence.

One of the main reasons is it is such a popular therapy, apart from its convincing results, is the fact treatment tends to be over a very short term and focused on a specific problem. This makes it very accessible, at a cost that people can afford. CBT is a ‘here and now’ therapy that concentrates on a negative feeling or behaviour led by a destructive thought pattern, and how to change this process to move the person’s life forward and beyond the behaviour.

A person’s distorted thinking pattern can bring an altered view of the world and this, in turn, can cause feelings of despair, depression, anxiety, frustration, and anger. CBT is a powerful therapy that can realign the poor thought patterns and therefore, improve the life of the sufferer in the long term.

6. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT: Understand Your Feelings And Thoughts Through CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that is commonly used to help people understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviours. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including depression, addictions, anxiety and phobias.

The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behaviour. For example, a person who spends a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents and other air disasters may find themselves avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behaviour therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.

Who would benefit from this course?

Cognitive and behavioural psychotherapies are a range of therapies based on concepts and principles derived from psychological models of human emotion and behaviour.

They include a wide range of treatment approaches for emotional disorders, along a continuum from structured individual psychotherapy to self-help material.

This course is ideal for those that are either complete beginners to the field of CBT and are considering making a career change to become a CBT Therapist, with the aim of getting an insight and understanding of CBT, or existing CBT Therapists, teachers, coaches or parents looking to reinforce their knowledge or to pick up some new skills. This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career in CBT, though are unsure if you want to commit yourself financially and time wise to a full CBT qualification.

7. Mindfulness Based CBT: Learn How Mindfulness Based CBT Can Improve Your Life

MBCT is based on the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight week program, developed by Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Research shows that MBSR is enormously empowering for patients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and gastrointestinal disorders, as well as for psychological problems such as anxiety and panic.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy grew from this work. The MBSR program has been adapted so it can be used especially with people who have suffered repeated bouts of depression in their lives.

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self management of anxiety and stress. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the work place and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach in life.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment, while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses.

Who would benefit from this course?

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for prevention of relapse. This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness based CBT and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed 3 or more times (sometimes for twenty years or more) find that taking the program and learning these skills helps to reduce considerably their chances that depression will return.

8. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy DBT: How To Manage Your Emotions And Deal With Others Better 

DBT is a practical, hands-on therapy which can be used to help everyone, even you don’t have a mood disorder. From this course you will learn about emotions and how to change them, become more able to interact better with others, be more mindful, and learn how to handle difficult situations proficiently.

The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course begins by outlining what DBT is, why and how it was developed (including a little about its creator, Marsha M Linehan), and how it is used. From this foundational knowledge, you’ll quickly gain an understanding of the therapy and the benefits of learning and using DBT Skills.

The course looks at the causes and reasons for emotional suffering and how ineffective behaviours develop. You’ll gain a greater understanding of Emotion Dysregulation, including physical reasons that it may occur and how it can affect a person’s personal and professional life.

Taking you step-by-step through DBT’s modular treatment program, you’ll learn how and why it is structured in the way it is, along with the various issues that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy can alleviate. Part of this explanation will take you through the four stages that you can go through when learning DBT.

You’ll learn some of the general guidelines and goals of undertaking DBT. You’ll discover the ways in which Dialectical Behaviour Therapy differs to other forms of therapy and how it can be added to other wellness programs. The course also highlights some issues to consider when learning about this therapy.

Along with providing a lot of introductory information on DBT, you are also provided with a first-day crash course orientation, to get you involved with the practice quickly. From this, you’ll learn skills that help with Emotion Regulation and will be more able to create goals for yourself to reach while studying the course.

The course expands on your knowledge by providing an analytical tool that will assist you in determining the causes of negative behaviours. This method breaks down each event that occurs before, during, and after the problem behaviour arises – giving you the full scope of how it occurred.

It is important to gain a good comprehension of Mindfulness as it provides the foundation for other skills involved in DBT. Trying to practice these other skills without also practising Mindfulness can be difficult, so a detailed explanation of the mindfulness is provided, which also includes worksheets so that you can practice what you’ve learned.

From learning Emotion Regulation Skills, you will better understand emotions and the methods used to change them. As part of this, you will be able to name emotions, check facts to see if an emotion fits a situation, and how to use Problem Solving to change feelings.

A challenging behaviour to change is how you react to difficult circumstances, in the moment. The Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course teaches Distress Tolerances Skills that will help you to help alleviate suffering while you are in the moment – making these occurrences easier to handle.

This course will show you how to improve your Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills through DBT – creating, maintaining, and navigating relationships effectively. You will also learn Walking the Middle Path Skills, which is a set of 3 skills that help you manage yourself and your relationships at the same time.

To augment what you have learnt, the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Course explains how to conduct a typical session between individuals. The course also provides two patient examples and a review of the issues that can occur during group sessions, and how, as a group leader, you should handle them.

Who would benefit from the course?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) has been designed to ease the effects of depression, anxiety, stress, inner chaos, moodiness, impulsiveness, and self-destructiveness, as well as helping us to improve our relationships. It is also used to treat substance abuse, PTSD, and eating disorders.

With this in mind, the course is perfect for those affected by the various conditions above to study, as well as for therapists wishing to add to their existing skills profile. However, the ability to understand and change our emotions, gain improved interpersonal relationships, handle stressful situations better, and be more mindful every day, are traits we can all use.

9. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR: Combat Negative Thoughts Through MBSR

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course has been created to give those who suffer from stress, whether constantly or occasionally, the tools to combat negative thoughts and turn the mind into a weapon of positivity that will help you to reclaim your life.

The course does this through giving you both the knowledge of how and why certain techniques work along with how to do them and incorporate them easily into your daily routine.

We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times in our lives. For some, this is a fleeting condition that comes and goes with particular life events for others it is a daily struggle whose affects can be debilitating and hard to overcome; building up until even usually insignificant things can seem impossible to get through. No matter how often you feel the affects of stress and how powerfully, stress is a state of mind, which, left unchecked, can quickly turn into a physical condition.

The course gives students an in-depth look into what Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is. This includes information on its origins and the practice of mindfulness, deep breathing, and meditation and their affects on the mind and body. Students are invited to practice mindfulness following exercises.

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course covers mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and meditation; explaining what they are, the differences between them (and how phrases like ‘mindfulness meditation’ can be confusing), and the benefits to your mind and body of practising each.

Stress and anxiety create a negative chemical change in your brain, in a similar, but opposite, way practising mediation and being mindful can also create a positive chemical change. Students will learn exactly what these changes are, and will be introduced to more techniques that will help them to cultivate the habits of meditation and mindfulness.

For chronic sufferers of stress, the reaction to negative triggers can have damaging affects on the body and mind. The MBSR Course discusses these effects and, conversely, the positive effects of a mindful practice, along with imparting practical techniques that can be employed the moment the feeling of stress comes on.

Students are provided with practical, illustrated yoga techniques that they can practice themselves and combine with mediation techniques, to more affectively de-stress both the mind and the body. Stress can easily manifest itself as a result of miscommunication with the people in your life or because an individual finds it difficult to communication certain things.You will learn how to become a better at communicating so that conflicts can be rectified before they can become lasting problems.

As mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is at the core of this course, students will be guided through the structure of an 8-week programme in MBCT. This imparts not only a theoretical knowledge but a practical one also.

Knowing that there are so many people who have been where you’ve been and want to be, where you are now can inspire you to want to help others. With this in mind this course guides students through setting up their own MBSR practice, should they wish to impart their newly-found knowledge and make it an even bigger part of their lives.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Certificate Course is something that can benefit everyone, though the focus is on those who suffer from stress, anxiety and/or depression, and want to be able to help themselves in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic/medicine-free.

The course will also be beneficial to those who know someone who is going through the aforementioned conditions and may wish to study with them, as a support to them. Likewise, the course proves as an excellent study source for those in caring professions and those who wish to use what they have learned to help in their careers.

10. Mindfulness: Manage Stress And Anxiety Through Mindfulness 

How to manage stress and anxiety in yourself and others, by adopting a Mindful approach

Mindfulness is a modern concept, which describes the adoption of a new mindset, which can measurably alter ones outlook and mood and is used as an empowering tool in the self-management of anxiety and stress.

Mindfulness is the practice of being aware in every possible moment while keeping a non-judgmental outlook and at the same time observing your own bodily and emotional responses. Many businesses and individuals are introducing powerful Mindfulness techniques into their daily routines to help relieve stress in the workplace and to keep a positive outlook and to help adopt a more productive approach to life.

To do this you should begin to observe the ‘self’ and any reactions to situations and others in a dispassionate way. In other words, not be a slave to our own thoughts and the emotions that they generate, but to step back and assess before the usual reaction takes place.

Mindfulness is about taking a ‘holistic’ approach to mind, body and spirit. So to fully practice Mindfulness, it is important to look at oneself as a spiritual being. Because of this new outlook, practices such as Meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi can also be utilised to bring calm and peace to the mind and body, while employing a more detached and philosophical-spiritual outlook.

This powerful course will teach you everything that you need to know about Mindfulness and how to start using the techniques and principles in your daily life. Whether you are looking to use the Mindfulness techniques to help yourself or others, upon completion of this course you can work as a Mindfulness Practitioner either on a 1-2-1 basis or with groups of people, either in a therapy practice or in the workplace.

Who would benefit from this course?

The practice of mindfulness is something that everyone can benefit from. Being able to consider a situation and your own thoughts before acting is a powerful skill. It can aid you in both your personal and professional life – giving you the ability to make decisions based on fact, rather than emotion.

The course is particularly useful to those with conditions such as depression, stress, and anxiety, as it provides practical techniques to overcome negative thoughts and feelings, in a way that is lasting, sustainable, and holistic.

Upon successful completion of the Mindfulness Certificate Course, you can work as a Mindfulness Practitioner either on a 1-2-1 basis or with groups of people. Counsellors, practitioners, and other mental health professionals will be able to use the knowledge gained in the course to better help their patients, by offering a holistic approach to health care that has proven results.
