At its best, ADHD is associated with lateral thinking, creativity, innovation, high energy and drive. At its worst, ADHD can have a significant negative effect on relationships, schoolwork and performance at work.  

Be Mindful delivers all the elements of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Individuals are led through four themed modules, each taking one week to complete, comprising pre-recorded video-led sessions and mindfulness assignments to practice daily, in their own time. 

The mindfulness program takes a minimum of four weeks but can be completed at an individual’s own pace. Self-assessment tools are used to chart progress from start to finish. By the end, individuals will be practising mindfulness in daily life, helping them to be present and not caught up in negative thoughts, and to be more aware and respond more skilfully to life events.
