Your mind is like any other part of your being, there are benefits from understanding how it works and you can train it to work better.

The aim of mindfulness therapy is to help you learn to be aware of your thoughts and bodily sensations, and in so doing be able to better cope with day to day emotions and problems.

Mindfulness is a modern reworking of ancient meditation traditions, principally Buddhist. It is designed to help you deal with day to day difficulties by putting you in control of your own mind.

Specifically a mindfulness practice has the following benefits:

  • Stability of mind – maintaining your mind in an alert clear space rather than at the two extremes of a dull or agitated mind.
  • Flexibility of mind – the ability to shift your mind to whatever focus you choose, rather than having it bounce between a number of issues
  • Self awareness – being aware of the contents of your mind and understanding the typical patterns of your mind
  • Acting rather than reacting – becoming less reactive and choosing how you will act.
