Mindfulness-based Therapy combines the ideas of cognitive therapy of challenging limiting beliefs with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. I incorporate mindfulness-based therapy with creativity engagement through art making.
Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills help to considerably reduce their chances of depression returning.
Mindfulness helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to recognize their sense of well-being. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat mental health symptoms as they arise.
Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know may benefit from mindfulness-based therapy, please contact me today for a free consultation. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.
