Online Mindfulness Therapy

The term “mindfulness” gets bandied about a lot. It’s all over Instagram and social media, but do you really know what it means?

Mindfulness means lots of things to lots of different people. It can mean the type of awareness you develop when you practice yoga: physical awareness that draws into breath awareness, and breath awareness that draws into mental awareness.

In therapeutic terms, however, mindfulness is a process of acknowledging your inner voice. If you meditate, your breath draws your thoughts inside; but – sometimes – you struggle to focus on your breath.

In that case, the inner voice pops in to ask “why can’t you sit still?” and “what’s up with you today?”

Mindfulness permits us to listen to that voice and examine where it’s coming from

What is Mindfulness Therapy (MT)?

Holistic practices like yoga aside, Mindfulness Therapy is the conscious effort to draw our awareness into the present moment.

MT is NOT about relaxation (go to a meditation or yoga class for that). This therapeutic practise is about developing awareness of those thoughts, actions, and feelings that seem to hinder our life progress.

This makes MT an excellent complement to other therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as well as DBT, and ACT.

Mindfulness helps people think and act in the present moment by learning to consider the potency of language; helping us make conscious decisions about how to respond to challenging situations.

What conditions can it help treat?

Our online mindfulness therapy can be done in groups or individually and can reduce symptoms associated with stress, anxiety, and trauma.

MT can be useful as a complement to Couples Therapy; helping feuding couples to find mutual acceptance and a solid middle ground to rebuild their relationship.

MT can also help treat the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Self-acceptance
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
