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.
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, and where do Mindfulness sessions take place?
I incorporate mindfulness sessions as part of either my online psychotherapy, or coaching and consultancy sessions. I do not offer them as individual, standalone treatments. Within these sessions I may work with you to design a mindfulness practice that you can incorporate into your daily life. Your personal practice might start with just a few minutes each day.
