Mindfulness involves paying attention to the present moment with acceptance. This awareness can be directed either externally using the five senses or internally toward thoughts, feelings, and sensations, and is accompanied by a particular set of attitudes characterised by openness, non-judgement, and compassion. Empirical research supports the effectiveness of mindfulness based approaches in treating a wide range of mental health conditions.

A unique feature of my professional experience is my familiarity with a wide variety of mindfulness-based psychological therapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM). This broad experience enables me to draw from a diverse range of mindfulness-based techniques to target the specific needs of individuals.

Scientific Benefits of Mindfulness

  • Improved mental health: reduced levels of stress, anxiety, depression, rumination, emotional reactivity, substance abuse, and disordered eating; increased well-being and happiness.

  • Improved physical health: reduced blood pressure, pain intensity, and gastrointestinal difficulties; improved sleep and immune system functioning.

  • Improved cognitive functioning: increased attention focus, self-control, working memory, information processing speed, creativity, and cognitive flexibility.

  • Improved brain functioning: reduced activity in amygdala and increased activity in prefrontal cortex, suggesting increased ability to regulate emotions and manage stress.

  • Adaptive changes in brain structure: lower density of neurons in amygdala and greater density of neurons in areas involved in emotional control, suggesting long-term resilience to stress.

  • Improved relationships: greater relationship satisfaction, empathy, and connectedness; reduced interpersonal conflict.
