In recent years, a growing concern about increased levels of stress and anxiety has attracted interest in applications of mindfulness and mindfulness training as a constructive approach to addressing these issues. In Education, a number of studies have identified in mindfulness a potential strategy to both enhance students’ wellbeing and to improve academic performance. Against this background, the paper considers the potential integration of mindfulness in advising in language learning. It is intended that this exploratory theoretical paper will lay the foundations for further research projects developing and evaluating mindfulness in advising for language learning practice and subsequently propose additional CPD (continuing professional development) pathways for advisers.
