Introduction to Mindfulness Course

Carers NT are facilitating a mindfulness course

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about focussing your attention on the present. When you are mindful you observe your thoughts and feelings without judgment. Instead of life passing you by, it means living and fully experiencing the present moment.

What are the benefits of Mindfulness?

There is significant research outlining mindfulness as an effective treatment in stress reduction; pain management; improving memory; increasing focus; improved self care; enhanced coping strategies; improving mental health; reducing emotional reactivity, and relationship improvements.


Toni Ryan has tertiary qualifications in Social Work and Counselling, with 19 years practical experience in the field. Toni is currently employed by Carers NT as a Carer Counsellor. Toni has significant training and experience in practicing mindfulness.
