Mindfulness is a research-proven intervention for mental health issues. Incorporating mindfulness into your psychotherapy practice begins with cultivating your own personal mindfulness practice.
I facilitate several ongoing consultation groups for therapists practicing mindfulness-based psychotherapy. Each group begins with a 30-minute meditation followed by discussion about everyday mindfulness practices. We also discuss case studies and ways to work mindfully with our clients.
These groups are designed to support therapists both personally and professionally. To join a group, ideally you will have taken an eight-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction or equivalent course or have an established daily personal meditation practice.
Mindfulness informs us about the mind and the nature of human suffering. It has research-based applications to address mental and physical health problems.
