  • Is this a certification course?

    Unfortunately, Mindfulness X is not a certificate program.

    There is a lot that goes into offering certification and that hasn't been our focus or goal with Mindfulness X.

    It was designed to enable you to give your own high-quality mindfulness training.

    In our opinion, offering online examination would be downplaying the value of official training certification and we do not intend to do so.

    Mindfulness X can serve as a decent starting point if you don't have a mindfulness certificate, especially if you stick to the materials we provide.

    However, we recommend our customers to take a mindfulness certification course first before seeing any clients. If you are not a certified mindfulness trainer please use the material within the boundaries of your own professional expertise.

    The University of Maastricht is doing research into its effectiveness, but it is not accredited, nor do we aim to accredit it, because it's not a training in its essence.

    It's a resource pack for delivering a mindfulness training.

  • What is the difference between Mindfulness X and MBSR?

    Mindfulness X covers the same topics and meditations but uses a different structure in the sessions. In addition, some topics, like the self and goals are not addressed in MBSR.

    MBSR was designed to help with specific conditions, namely dealing with the stress of illness. Mindfulness X was designed to be used with a greater scale of challenges than stress only. That is why Mindfulness X devotes far more attention to the general processes underlying mindfulness practice. In doing so, Mindfulness X aims to increase the understanding that Mindfulness is not only a technique used for dealing with specific problems but first and foremost a way of living and relating to inner states, thoughts and other experiences at a very fundamental level.

    Moreover, Mindfulness X integrates research findings into the training program to back up claims. It was designed for an audience that values both practice and insight in psychological processes. Mindfulness X thus has a strong psychological character, building on insights from the literature on mindfulness and beyond (e.g. the literature on emotion regulation).

  • What do MBSR and Mindfulness X have in common?

    The mindfulness component of the course, which constitutes at least 90% of the course, is identical. Both have the same meditation practices and both are aimed at learning to use mindfulness to increase well-being and become more resilient. Both MBSR and Mindfulness X address this common habit we can all fall into of ‘over thinking’.  Both courses explore how we can use mindfulness to disengage from ‘overthinking’, break automatism and instead learn to ‘tap into’ our natural inner stability and resourcefulness, so that we can manage life’s challenges more easily and also be more appreciative and aware of positive life experiences.

 STRENGTH-BASED COACHING PACKAGE

  • What is Strength-Based Coaching?

     Strength-based coaching is based on the view that the identification and utilization of a client’s strengths will allow them to regain power over their lives (Greene, Lee, & Hoffpauir, 2005).

    A strength focus means that attention is devoted to what is already working, positive exceptions to problems, and coping strategies that the client is already using (Saleebey, 2006).

    This type of attention allows clients to become aware of their own power and autonomy. In turn, this realization can positively affect the investment of clients and their willingness to take action.

  • What is included in the package?

    • 19 Science-Based Tools & Exercises (PDF) for Realising Strengths
    • An Instruction Manual For You As a Practitioner (35-page PDF)
