Mindful Change Group Goals and Outcomes

The Mindful Change Group will equip you with a toolkit of skills to stay on track more often, allowing you to experience a more rich, full and meaningful life.

At the completion of the group you will have the skills to be better able to:

  • Handle your uncomfortable thoughts and feelings so they have less impact on you and less influence over you,
  • Change your behaviours to allow you to move forward in the direction you want to go based on your individual values,
  • Be able to make an honest evaluation of your actions and beliefs in order to determine how well they are working for you,
  • Willingly experience the full range of feelings, memories, and thoughts that we have on a daily basis, without attempting to get rid of or avoid those that we find difficult or uncomfortable,
  • Use coping skills as alternatives for avoiding,
  • Develop and participate in a social network.

You can create a life that you love!
