Mindfulness in Therapy

Mindfulness means paying attention on purpose; in the present moment and non-judmentally (Jon Kabat-Zinn). We can tap into this inate skill at any given moment by shifting our attention.

By bringing a Mindful approach of present moment awareness and friendly curiosity to therapy, we can gain perspective on difficulties and discover new ways forward. In therapy, I sometimes introduce mindfulness practices to help with the management of stess, anxiety and depression.


Mindfulness Training

In addition to my psychotherapy practice, I run Mindfulness courses that help people set up their individual, regular mindfulness practice. Whilst practicing mindfulness or partaking in a mindfulness course can be therapeutic, it is important to understand that it is not therapy. 

Through systematic training of attention, awareness and compassion, we learn to notice thoughts, feelings and physical sensations as they arise in the here and now and to meet our experience in a non-judgmental way. Step-by-step we learn to interrupt our habitual and unhelpful thinking patterns (i.e. rumination, overthinking) and explore alternative, less stressful ways of relating to ourselves, others and the world.

Underpinned by neurosicence and decades of research, mindfulness training facilitates the exploration of the interplay between our body and brain. It enables us to maximise our inner resources for coping, healing and growth.

I had expected the Mindfulness training to feel like a chore as I have always found it difficult to be ‘still’ but to my surprise this wasn’t the case at all! With the guidance and support I discovered that I was able to make some big real-life changes.

Learning mindfulness has been a life-changing experience for me. It helped me control my anxiety and deal with it much better. The body-scan is my favourite practice and I sit every day.
