Mindfulness-based therapy incorporates breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to bring intentional focus on the present moment. Become more self-aware of problematic thinking patterns and emotions with acceptance and find the ease in letting go. This therapy can increase awareness of physical sensations such as tension and pain. With practice, you will begin to reduce emotional reactivity and incorporate more calm and peaceful thoughts.
This therapy is scientifically proven to create positive changes in the brain, similar to those seen with pharmacological treatment of depression and anxiety.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioural therapy is also available. Beneficial to those with cognitive difficulties (as seen in brain injuries) to assist in regaining focus and reduce emotional reactivity.
