Mindfulness Defined

Mindfulness at its core can be described as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmental.” It has been proposed as a form of professional development to manage the demands of teaching. Mindfulness has been empirically associated with psychological well-being. Mindfulness can exert beneficial effects on physical health, mental health, and cognitive performance. The elements of mindfulness, have been found potentially effective against common forms of psychological distress like rumination, anxiety, worry, fear, and anger. Mindfulness involves acceptance, meaning that an individual must pay attention to their feelings and thoughts without judgment. It involves believing there is no “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel at any given moment. By practicing mindfulness, an individual can live in the moment and not relive the past or imagine what can occur in the future.

What Mindfulness is About

  • Being present to an individual’s experiences however distressing or upsetting it may be
  • Brings us closer to difficulties but without becoming caught up in our reactions to difficulties
  • It is a slow, gentle coming to grips with who we are
  • Settling into our current experience in a relaxed, alert, open-hearted way

Why is Mindfulness Therapy Helpful?

Mindfulness Therapy is a research-backed and holistic approach to mental health that revolves around the practice of mindfulness meditation. Rooted in ancient contemplative traditions, this evidence-based therapy has gained immense popularity in recent years for its profound effectiveness in reducing stress, anxiety, and depression while enhancing overall mental and emotional wellness.


The acquirement of moment-by-moment awareness of an individual’s surrounding environment is a practice that helps people better cope with the difficult thoughts and feelings that cause stress and anxiety in everyday life. With regular practice of mindfulness exercises, individuals can harness the ability to root the mind in the present moment and deal with life’s challenges in a calm, clear-minded, assertive way. Developing a fully conscious mindset frees us from unhelpful, self-limiting thought patterns. A fully conscious mind enables individuals to be fully present to focus on positive emotions that increase compassion and understanding in themselves and others.

What to Expect in Mindfulness Therapy

Guided Meditation

Central to Mindfulness Therapy is the practice of guided meditation. Through carefully crafted meditation exercises, you'll learn to direct your attention to the present moment, cultivating a deep sense of awareness and inner calm. Our experienced therapists will gently guide you through each session, helping you develop a sustainable mindfulness practice.

Breath Awareness

One of the foundational elements of mindfulness is breath awareness. Learning to observe your breath without judgment can profoundly impact your ability to manage stress and anxiety. Your therapist will teach you techniques to harness the power of your breath, promoting relaxation and mental clarity.

Body Scan

Mindfulness Therapy often incorporates the body scan technique, which involves bringing focused attention to different parts of your body. This practice not only helps you release physical tension but also fosters a stronger mind-body connection, promoting a sense of unity and holistic well-being.

Mindful Daily Living

Beyond your therapy sessions, Mindfulness Therapy encourages the integration of mindfulness into your daily life. You'll learn how to infuse mindfulness into routine activities, fostering a sustained state of presence and self-awareness even outside of formal meditation.
