Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness is a way of being that brings you into the present moment, improves your self awareness, helps to manage mental health, aids in the process of healing, and promotes meaningful relationships.

Skills of mindfulness are taught in exercises, mindset, and through having a professional bring you into awareness of yourself. In addition, mindfulness practices, especially relational ones, can contribute to the development of spiritual qualities, such as transcendence, boundlessness, ultimacy, and interconnectedness. Several recent studies suggest that meditation/mindfulness interventions may be explained and or enhanced by an emphasis on spiritual components.

Some issues that indicate mindfulness is needed are:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Destructive patterns 
  • Low self esteem
  • Living in the future or past 
  • Feeling stuck
  • Disconnection from the body
  • Relationship problems
  • Loneliness
  • Negative self talk
  • Inability to cope with emotions

Mindfulness observations help people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive or anxious symptoms as they arise. Techniques you learn can empower you to manage you emotions and bring increased emotional intelligence. 

Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know may benefit from mindfulness, please contact me today. I would be happy to speak with you about how I can empower you.
