Mindfulness Therapy in Plymouth
Mindfulness therapy is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness.
It's a very popular approach that can be helpful for people who are stressed, anxious, or suffering from mood-related issues.
Mindfulness can also be very helpful in helping focus your mind on the immediate present. This process, with practice, allows you to recognise the wanderings of the mind as only thoughts, not reality.
For example, you may start thinking: “What if I can’t cope?”, “that person doesn’t like me”, “I’m no good at that”, etc. These thoughts will lead to negative feelings such as anger, sadness, guilt, anxiety, or regret.
But if you let these feelings pass through your mind freely, you can learn to accept them as only day-to-day thoughts and nothing more. You can then free yourself of the negative emotions that go with them and learn to feel more peaceful and calm daily.
Indeed, research suggests that patterns of the mind actually change with the practice of mindfulness.
