Learn With us
You will learn Buteyko breathing, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy methods that will help you deal with anxiety, depression, poor sleep or frequent anger. Whether you are bothered by one or all of these our sessions will be unique to your needs.
The Buteyko breathing method is a series of exercises that retrains your breathing so that your breathing is continually: Effortless, slow and gentle, that it is nasal, driven by your diaphragm with your mouth closed and with a correct tongue posture. And finally that there is a natural pause after each exhalation.
Nasal diaphragmatic breathing influences the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digestion state. It is shown to reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. It is also proven to lower heart rates and blood pressure. For anxiety sufferers, the greatest benefit is that it prevents the onset of hyperventilation.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is considered to be the gold standard treatment in mental health improvement. It posits that outside of real threats or loss it is repetitive negative thoughts and beliefs that cause anxiety, depression, rage and other extreme emotions. CBT seeks to address this unhelpful thinking by analysing and changing thought patterns.
Quite simply Mindfulness-Based Therapy is a way of recognising in the moment when negative thoughts are creeping up and learning to direct attention away from them. The purpose is not to stop these thoughts from occurring, but to be able to separate from them and treat them as entities that can be observed. This in turn has the effect of quietening the mind.
Each session is one hour long.
