Mindfulness


As clinicians we have all found value in using mindfulness in our sessions.  We have seen the value of using it with individuals, couples, teens and children.  The beauty of mindfulness is that once you learn the skills you will be able to practice it anytime, anywhere.  Using the ancient skill of mindfulness can clear your mind of the clutter of the day, trauma triggers, stress, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive tendencies and other challenges that you may be facing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR)

This 8-week Mindfulness course is comprised of 1 ½ hour sessions held weekly.  The topic for each session is based on the curriculum developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. This course is ideal for anyone who wants to increase their ability to be present and fully engaged in life and to better accept themselves and others.  With a wealth of scientific research, MBSR has been shown to decrease chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and OCD.  Evidence also shows MBSR increases positive mood states, happiness levels, self-compassion and compassion for others.  Participants also report stress reduction, improved concentration and immune function, lower blood pressure, and generally feeling more alive and in-tune with themselves and others.

Here are some responses we’ve received to our MBSR Course:

Less stress, better coping skills, some great ‘grownup’ methods for dealing with the chaos of life.
Being aware and learning to struve to be present in the moment. That I'm not looking outward I'm focused inward and it keeps me from progressing and healing. It has become a firm if time out for me to reset and try again.
Reduced anxiety more peace see things from different perspectives Taught me how to deal with stress How to react to others learned how to live in the present taught me how to feel gratitude
More motivated to continue
More aware of present moment which makes me more grateful. Take deep breaths in stressful moments which makes me more calm. I loved learning about all the topics each week. I loved having the opportunity to ask questions and to hear from other members of the class and their experiences.
