Mindfulness is taught as a method for becoming aware of one's actual, realistic experience in the moment, and separating it from fears about the future or rumination about events about the past.
The approach is based on the idea that one negative thought can lead to a chain reaction of negative thoughts (110).
This approach encourages people to be aware of each thought, enabling the first negative thought to be “caught” so that it is seen as just a thought and not a fact. This breaks the chain reaction of negative thoughts giving a mental space in which the person can re-centre themselves in the present.
Mindfulness-based therapists can work with individuals and groups. They will usually integrate mindfulness in with another type of therapy, in which they are already trained (110).
Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
