Mindfulness in Leicester
Mindfulness has been defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn as ‘..the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally to the way things are’.
Reconnecting with the sights, sounds and smells that surround us can have an incredibly calming effect and help us slow down and be aware of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. However it’s not easy to do this and that’s where mindfulness can help.
Mindfulness approaches to counselling helps us to reconnect with ourselves to alleviate stress. It also helps us to feel more attuned with our emotions and generally more aware of ourselves both mentally and physically. The many benefits of learning how to practice mindfulness can be life-changing. As a trained mindfulness teacher, I can teach you this practice, which has Buddhist origins dating back thousands of years, but only fairly recently recognised by modern Western medicine as a useful tool in dealing with stress, anxiety, depression and a host of physical conditions.
