Centre for Mindfulness has partnered with the Holistic Psychotherapy Centre to offer the Mindfulness-Oriented Counselling and Psychotherapy (MOCP) Programme. This 200 hours course is designed to inspire and equip therapists with mindfulness practices and methodologies, enhancing the depth and efficacy of their work with clients.

This course aims to empower therapists to integrate mindfulness into their practice, enriching both their professional journey and the therapeutic experience of their clients.

Who is this for?

Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Social Workers. 


This certification is intended exclusively for use in professional mental health practice. It does not qualify you to lead 8-week mindfulness courses or any other mindfulness-based programs. If you are interested in conducting 8-week mindfulness courses, please enroll in our Mindfulness Teacher Training course.
