Uses & Benefits of
Mindfulness Based Therapy
The busy-ness of our world today can take its toll on our bodies and minds, causing us to be in an increased state of mental and physical hyper-arousal. A mindfulness practice encourages us to slow down, and breathe! Calming our minds and our bodies this way can decrease symptoms of overwhelm and stress. Using mindfulness tools during challenging times can work to reduce stress in the moment, as well as to build an internal resource of strength for future challenges and stressors.
About Mindfulness-Based Therapy
Mindfulness is defined as a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.
While mindfulness may not be for everyone, combining mindful awareness with traditional talk therapy can serve as beneficial access points to discovering unconscious thoughts and feelings, enabling both the therapist and client to better understand the needs and motivations of the client.
Mindfulness can be used throughout individual sessions as therapist and client return to the present and allow whatever thoughts, feelings, or bodily sensations to be validated and heard.
In addition, mindfulness theory, tools, and resources can be useful and important components in supporting individuals as well as groups within personal and professional development settings.
