What is mindfulness?
Sometimes called attention training, mindfulness practice is a therapeutic tool that promotes a moment-to-moment awareness of your experience without judgment or criticism and can help you develop acceptance. Often using breath and breathing, mindfulness practice is a heartfelt and compassionate attention towards the activities of mind and allows what lies beyond and below the activities of mind to emerge.
Whether you are in Jungian analysis or psychotherapy, the practice of mindfulness can be a transformative experience. Mindfulness practice can provide a safe platform to explore difficult issues, confront anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, change your perspective, sense of self and outlook.
We can practice mindfulness in session. I make resources available to practice on your own.
Therapists and counselors find
mindfulness helpful for being present and intentional in working with the dynamics that arise with their patients.
