Mindfulness based Therapy and meditation


Mindfulness therapy and mindfulness meditation can be used as an approach on its own and also in conjunction with other treatment approaches to reduce stress and anxiety. Mindfulness approaches encourage awareness of oneself in the here and now and this can reduce anxiety which relates to thoughts about the future or past. It has been proven to be effective in reducing stress and anxiety and also preventing relapse in people who have recovered from depression. I often encourage clients to embark on a mindfulness program (using self-help materials or in a group program) alongside treatment


Due to the easing of lockdown restrictions I plan to return to seeing clients face to face from the start of June 2021. I plan to offer face to face sessions on certain days of the week at my office at 16 Forth Street. I will also continue to offer teletherapy for those who prefer this on other days of the week.


Best Wishes
