Mindfulness Therapy

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the process of paying attention to one's experiences in the present moment without judgment. Mindfulness practices have been around for centuries, but mindfulness therapy uses these techniques to treat mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress.

When we pay attention on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally, we are practising mindfulness. This simple act can help us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings so that we react less and respond more thoughtfully. The benefits of mindfulness include stress reduction, improved concentration, better relationships, and physical health.  

What is Mindfulness Therapy? 

Mindfulness therapy is a popular therapy technique that works to help people change their relationship with the world around them. It is not just a method of treatment for mental health issues, but also a way of thinking about and interacting with your surroundings. There are many different types of mindfulness therapy out there, including mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP). This article will focus on the two most common types of mindfulness therapy: mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP).

The therapy has its roots in ancient meditation practices, but it combines these age-old techniques with modern psychology. Mindfulness therapy is often used alongside other forms of cognitive-behavioral therapy, such as rational emotive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy.

How does Mindfulness Therapy Work? 

The goal of mindfulness counseling is to help patients become more aware of their automatic, habitual behaviors and thought patterns. This can be done through breathing techniques, meditation, and physical exercises.  Mindfulness practices can be used with other types of therapy to help people cope with depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and substance abuse. When combined with traditional medical treatment, mindfulness therapy may help people with chronic pain or cancer. 

During an MBCT session, a therapist will teach patients how to pay attention to what's happening in the present moment by bringing awareness to their thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and surroundings. This is done through the practice of mindfulness meditation (a form of meditation that involves focusing on the breath or other parts of the body) and yoga breathing techniques. People are also encouraged to observe their thoughts without judgment. The goal is for patients to accept their thoughts without getting caught up in them.

MBCT focuses on acceptance as opposed to trying to change thoughts or suppress them. When used alongside medication and other forms of treatment, MBCT is a very effective way to treat clinical depression and anxiety disorders.

What are the techniques used in Mindfulness Therapy

  • Mindful breathing: Practice becoming aware of your breath, and how it moves through your body. This will help you become more self-aware and learn to focus on the moment.
     
  • Body scan: Pay attention to each part of your body one at a time, from head to toe. Notice how every part feels, without trying to change anything.
     
  • Mindful movement: For example, yoga or tai chi. By moving slowly through poses or postures, you are using your breath to guide you as you focus on your movements.
     
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy: A treatment for borderline personality disorder that uses mindfulness and self-acceptance strategies.
     
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: A treatment for severe mental illness that emphasizes acceptance as well as behavioral changes.

Benefits of Mindfulness Counselling

Mindfulness benefits for counselors

  • Stress Relief  One of the biggest benefits of mindfulness therapy is that it can help us relieve stress by helping us pay attention to the present moment and letting go of our worries about the future or concerns with the past. This frees up mental space so that we can enjoy life more fully, without being weighed down by our thoughts about it all the time.  
     
  • Improve Mental Health -  Many people who suffer from depression or anxiety find relief from mindfulness therapy because it helps them shift their focus away from negative thoughts and feelings. It teaches them how to control their attention so that they will not get ‘stuck’ in a cycle of negativity, allowing them to experience more joy.
     
  • Helps you to observe different things - It helps you to be more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Mindfulness teaches people to observe their feelings without judgment or criticism. This can help them to have a better understanding of where these feelings originate, and how they impact their daily lives.
