The Happiness Coach’s Mindfulness Now Programme provides a fully integrated approach to teaching mindfulness that aims to equip individuals and career coaches with the skills required to enable them to help cope with anxiety and stress, physical pain, emotional pain and training in building emotional resilience for the future.
The Development of Mindfulness Now
Developed by Nick Cooke after successful experience of using mindfulness to aid his own rehabilitation and recovery following two serious illnesses, the programme draws upon his experiences of practicing mindfulness as a therapist. Offering a psycho-educational fusion of numerous mindfulness-based approaches, such as MBSR and MBCT, the programme was further developed by Professor Mark Williams and colleagues at the University of Oxford.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Developed by Professor Mark Williams and colleagues at the University of Oxford, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a form of cognitive therapy that utilises mindfulness practices such as breathing exercises and meditation. By teaching clients how to use these tools effectively, our career coaching helps clients to break away from negative thought patterns that could lead to depression, encouraging a positive psychology, healthy energy and motivation.
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Developed by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a form of therapy that addresses negative thought patterns than can perpetuate stress, leading to anxiety and depression. MBSR helps clients to explore mindful meditation to cultivate new ways in dealing with what is going on in our minds, lives and bodies, including relaxation and stress management skills.
Combining these various mindfulness-based approaches, Cooke discovered a breakthrough in the treatment of various psychological issues such as anxiety, depression and emotional trauma.
Our 8 week mindfulness and meditation programmes can help with anxiety, panic attacks, stress reduction, emotional trauma and pain control. For individuals we can tailor a programme to deal with your specific needs.

How can Mindfulness Now help me or my business?
Mindfulness Now helps individuals to feel confident, relaxed and fulfilled to enable them to live more stress-free and enriching lives. By gaining mindfulness, individuals are able to take control of their own emotions, gaining strengthening skills as they work towards their own personal development. In charge of their own emotions and actions, participants learn to communicate more effectively, resolve issues more efficiently and gain the interpersonal skills needed to reach their goals and work together as a team.
Due to the improved work ethic and strength of the team following Mindfulness programmes, many large corporations around the world, such as Google, Apple and The Bank of England, are adopting mindfulness as a key part of their employee development. Specialists in mindfulness and corporate coaching, we can provide tailor made programmes for organisations, business and schools, working with large groups or individuals or all ages, expertise and background, to provide them with the necessary skills to succeed.
