Posted on: 29/11/2023 with tags Trade Releases
Michael O’Mara Books is to publish Mindful Healing: 5 Simple Steps to Transform Your Wellbeing by Dr Afrosa Ahmed, a GP and mindfulness practitioner and founder of MindfulDoc.
From boosting confidence to improving personal relationships, this revolutionary book offers a complete toolkit to introducing the practice of meditation into every aspect of your life, no matter how busy you are or how unattainable you think it may be.
By incorporating the gold-standard science behind mindfulness alongside the ancient practice of meditation, Dr Afrosa brings both her knowledge of the human body and 20 years of experience in the NHS to bear in creating this holistic and truly life-changing programme.
In five weeks, you can understand yourself, why previous programmes have failed and identify what you’d like to change, bring awareness and acceptance, master the mind with mindfulness, find your pathway to healing and learn self-care strategies to sustain your wellbeing, not just the present moment but the future.
Dr Afrosa Ahmed, author, said: ‘As an NHS medical doctor, I have seen suffering in all forms, physical and mental and its effect in every sphere of a person’s life. I felt compelled to help patients beyond the consulting room, to reduce stress and improve their lives and this is very much the reason I wrote this book. Accessible to all, Mindful Healing is my guide to unlocking the steps needed to achieve a mind-body-heart state of wellbeing, using a fusion of medicine and mindfulness.’
Nicki Crossley, Senior Commissioning Editor for Michael O’Mara, said: ‘We are thrilled to be publishing Mindful Healing in time for Mental Health Awareness week next year. As both a mindfulness coach and a GP, Dr Afrosa is uniquely placed to deliver a bespoke wellbeing programme which truly works – and you can tailor to whatever life throws at you.
