Mindfulness is a tool for personal growth, and fits together with psychotherapy, bodywork and yoga in a complementary, helpful and natural way.
Mindfulness is non-judgmental awareness of present moment experience. We might find ourselves driving long distances on ‘automatic-pilot’, without really being aware of what we’re doing. In the same way we may have not been ‘present’, moment by moment, at many points in our life.
On auto-pilot we are more likely to have our ‘buttons pressed’: events around us, and our own thoughts, feelings and sensations (of which we might only be vaguely aware) can trigger old habits of feeling, thinking and behaviour that might be unhelpful, and may lead on to further, equally unhelpful negative thought patterns. By becoming more aware of our bodily sensations, feelings and thoughts, from moment to moment, we give ourselves the possibility of greater freedom and choice; we do not have to repeat old patterns.
There have been many, many studies into the efficacy of mindfulness training, and it is now a widely accepted fact that the adult nervous system is capable of plasticity, and it is possible to change the structure of the brain through repetitive training.
How often do Mindfulness sessions take place?
Sessions are held as per your individual requirements. It is often useful to schedule a number of weekly sessions in order to consolidate learning and prevent recurrence of the presenting issue(s). Mindfulness practice is often woven into psychotherapy, bodywork and yoga sessions, where appropriate.
