Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness means paying attention in a
particular way: on purpose, in the present
moment and nonjudgmentally.

Jon Kabat-Zinn

 


 

Mindfulness-Based Therapy Helps You To:

  • identify and challenge the underlying negative beliefs that contribute to depression and anxiety

  • encourages the development of an accepting attitude towards life experiences



Benefits of Mindfulness-Based Therapy Include:

  • Improved anxiety and mood symptoms
  • Reduced relapse or recurrance of depressive symptoms
  • Increased concentration
  • Improved patience
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased self-compassion and compassion towards others
  • Increased ability to 'respond' versus 'react'

The beneficial effects of meditation and mindfulness-based therapies are supported by a growing body of evidence. Over two decades of clinical research has shown that it can benefit people suffering from anxiety, recurrent depression, chronic pain, substance abuse and other conditions.



Most of the time, we are lost in the past or carried away by the future.
When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment,
our understanding of what is going on deepens,
and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace, and love.


Thich Nhat Hanh
