‘Mindfulness’ is the buzz word that’s already gone stale – and most people think it is about being ‘peaceful’ or ‘meditating’ or ‘living in the now’.
It is true that Mindfulness helps us to be more present, however the aim of mindfulness is more about training your brain than spending time being peaceful.
In a nutshell:
Mindfulness helps you to be more in control of your life
Mindfulness enhances the quality of your life
You will feel SO much better about yourself
There is nothing religious about mindfulness or meditation, and nor is there anything about it that isn’t perfectly in line with every spiritual or religious teaching!
All too often I have clients who have attended a long ‘Mindfulness’ Course, only to tell me that they have no idea how to put their learning into practice when stresses and strains seem to shunt them from pillar to post in everyday experience. So while we will do all the exercises in a standard Mindfulness CBT Based course, we will also take time to make sure you are able to practically apply what you are learning.
