Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness is the practice of paying full attention to the present moment. It involves observing your thoughts and feelings without judgement. Mindfulness therapy uses techniques to help you focus on the present moment to gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. It addresses cognitive distortions and unhelpful thinking habits by encouraging us to accept feelings, anxiety and thoughts in the present moment, without judgment. It teaches you to respond thoughtfully to stressful events, rather than reacting impulsively.

Mindfulness techniques can be incorporated into every-day life. Simple exercises - like box-breathing - can be incorporated into your daily routine whether you’re at work, driving, on a walk, or relaxing at home. Other mindfulness practices include body scan, mindful walking, mindful eating, and meditation. 

Tara Brach’s RAIN meditation is a good example of the mindfulness approach; Recognise your experience in the present moment, Allow and accept those internal experiences even if painful, Investigate and enquire about the experiences, rather than judging them, and Nurture with self-compassion the gentle parts of one’s self.
