ABOUT LOTUS TRAINING
At lotus training, we emphasise the development of mindfulness and open-hearted-ness. We regard these as an essential starting point for the processes of healing and growth.
We understand well-being to be a truly expansive state of presence, compassion, joy and peace which can manifest in any aspect of our human condition, including suffering.
Mindfulness practice is a regular feature of all our counselling courses. We use this as a resource to help support and nourish the helper, counsellor, and psychotherapeutic counsellor. It is an approach that you can apply in everyday life. We pay particular attention to aspects of mindfulness training such as awareness, equanimity, compassion and loving kindness. Developing these skills can help us to appreciate and access our ever-present inner awareness. Mindfulness is taught through meditation practice, which includes bringing attention to the breath and body in relation to self and other.
Our courses lead to nationally regulated qualifications awarded by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) – the only Ofqual-approved awarding body to specialise in the field of counsellling and supervision.
