Mindfulness for Organisations, Individuals & Building Better Opportunities
Mindfulness For Organisations
Mindfulness is simply a set of self management techniques that increase self-awareness and help us to regulate stress, performance and responses in the workplace.
Increasingly mindfulness for organisations is moving into the mainstream; featuring prominently within international management, organisational development and change management programmes as well as being the subject of a Government All Parliamentary Group. Successful organisations such as Google, eBay, Yahoo and Apple have already embedded mindfulness withing their workforce.
Increasingly smaller organisations across the public, private and voluntary and community sectors want their employees to experience the benefits in their personal, professional and client facing lives. To ensure that learning about mindfulness is available to small and medium organisations working within the voluntary and community sectors we offer a reduced rate to enterprises from this sector.
At Now Unlimited we categorise Organisational Mindfulness in two ways; Organisational Development and Working With Clients. We have worked with clients who want to embed mindful practices within their staff to reduce work related stress and the impact it has on health and to help create a happier, healthier and more productive environment. Clients have also wanted their employees to work mindfully in their approach to work with specific client groups to improve relationships and work without judgement, or a combination of the two.
Now Unlimited’s bespoke learning and support packages use a combination of mindful mentoring, mindfulness consultancy and training programmes to provide our services. All of our courses adopt a secular, research led approach to the application of mindful techniques. We operate within the principles and guidance set out in the Good Practice Guidance for Teaching Mindfulness-based Courses set out by Bangor, Oxford and Exeter Universities. Our other professional affiliations inform the training, development and mentoring principles of good practice we adhere to.
We specialise in learning and development in the following areas:
Influence and the use of power
Creating healthy and productive working environments
Creating and managing high-performing teams
Improving resilience and adaptability
How Do We Operate?
We have a simple 5-step approach to working collaboratively with organisations. Before we begin any work we offer a free 20 minute consultation to learn about your business and if mindfulness is right for your organisation. We want to find out about your business objectives and the knowledge, skills and ethos essential to deliver them. We can help you to assess what skills the workforce has and what they will need to ensure you are equipped to face the challenges ahead. Our approach includes the following steps:
Step 1: Learning about our client and their sector
Step 2: Listening to the needs of our client
Step 3: Collaboratively developing tailored solutions
Step 4: Implementing sustainable interventions
Step 5: Evaluating success
Mindfulness For Individuals
Our approach to the development of your health and well-being places you at the centre; your experiences, your feelings and what you value inform our person centered approach.
We will support you in developing an approach to discovering, learning and embedding mindfulness for individuals practices that works for you. Using mindfulness based approaches supported by scientific research we can help you to develop a heightened awareness of the present moment and a different relationship with your experience.With our knowledge, expertise and support you will begin to see the world more clearly, without the baggage of problems in the past and worries about a future that may never arrive. Without these barriers mindfulness for individuals will you see life as it really is; warts, roses and all.
We help individuals function in ways that are physically, mentally and emotionally healthy and with an awareness of the connections between themselves, their family, friends, community and the wider world. Our person-centered approach provides a variety of ways for you to access our training programmes and tailor your experience to suit your needs.

Building Better Opportunities
Now Unlimited has partnered up with Children’s Link to provide a unique mindfulness programme specifically designed for individuals struggling with mental ill-health.
Using mindfulness tools, we aim to cultivate mental resilience and provide each individual with skills, knowledge and ability to become active contributors in their own communities. This project is being delivered in Spalding, Lincolnshire, for people living in around the Spalding area.
The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund Building Better Opportunities. This is a national programme of funding designed to support individuals back into education, training or employment.
To be eligible for this project people need to have the right to work in the UK and be either unemployed or economically inactive.
