Mindfulness Therapy

The purpose of mindfulness therapy is to teach you how you can be more fully aware and present in each moment of your life and without judgement. This means whatever you are facing, even if it is unpleasant, can be acknowledged and accepted. You will develop the ability to skilfully choose and manage your reaction to them.

Learning mindfulness  may bring on feelings of relaxation or it may not, you may find that initially it can feel a bit stressful. It may bring up concerns to the surface. What we are learning is how to deal with difficulties by changing our reactions and our relationship to them in an empowering way. It is helpful to understand that mindfulness is a mental discipline and is like ‘building a muscle by training it to be stronger’, this takes practicing until it becomes an authentic part of you.

As you become mindful, you will start to feel better about yourselves and about your life, which is great; however with being mindful it is not about feeling a certain way. Being mindful is about seeing. This seeing is done with our whole being.

Mindfulness is about seeing who you are. It’s about seeing what’s going on right here and right now, moment to moment. Observing, watching, noticing out thoughts and experiencing ourselves as we are, accepting everything about yourselves with kindness. The  reward is empowering, also it may take courage at first.
