This innovative approach is based on over 30 years of practice-based research as well as a systematic proof of concept study, a market research study and a cost benefit analysis in primary care.
The outcomes were: an increase in wellbeing and activity levels; reduced anxiety/depression; reduced symptoms distress; reduced GP visits and secondary care referrals and stable or reduced medication usage.
The company aims to continue to research the approach which includes a synthesis of aspects of experiential learning, mindfulness in breath and movement, relaxation techniques, symbolic processes and group work.
Participants may be requested to volunteer their data (which will be anonymised) to be used for research purposes.
Research was conducted at the University of Hertfordshire
