Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness therapy is an effective form of psychotherapy that can be used on its own or more commonly, in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Mindfulness therapy is easily practiced and can help you to:

  • Quit your mind
  • Be in the present moment
  • Accept and acknowledge your feelings without judgment
  • Understand your thoughts and feelings
  • Be aware of yourself and your environment
  • Resolve your emotions
  • Improve concentration
  • Avoid negative thought patterns

Your therapist can assist you with mindfulness by doing breathing exercises with you, performing guided imagery to help with meditation.

How does it work

Much like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness therapy is an approach to treatment that focuses on how people’s thoughts, emotions, and beliefs influence their behaviour and how they perceive themselves, others, and the world. The ability to be in the moment, to acknowledge and regulate your emotions helps you to break free from negative thought patterns. Mindfulness therapy can help you to manage and overcome anxiety, depression, and manage stress.
