Can Mindfulness Counselling help me with my Anxiety, Stress, Depression or Anger Problems?
These are very commonly asked questions that clients often ask me, and my answer is quite a simple one. YES!
For ‘Most’ of the time as human beings we are on … what we call … (Auto-Pilot) which is when we’re lost in thought and trying to do several things at once and not Noticing our present state of being.
In other words, Lost in Thought.
As a result, this could mean that for the large majority of the time we are worrying or ruminating about things in a very unconscious manner. In other words, we aren’t even aware of it.
This rumination causes further Anxiety, Depression, Stress etc.
In fact, every single problem that we have can be made worse by incessant thinking or rumination. We add to our emotions in a negative manner when we’re lost in this way.
How can Mindfulness Counselling help us to recognise our AUTO-PILOTS reactions.
Mindfulness Counselling can help you to become more acutely aware of this mindless state of being that we all find ourselves in from time to time when our worries start to get on top of us.
It seems like … By the time we seek counselling, we have usually reached a point where we can’t stop worrying at all. The cogs are turning around even in the middle of the night.
This rumination can be keeping us awake at night. We quite possibly aren’t eating properly either. The worrying machine is consuming our every thought.
We perhaps can’t even find any pleasure or joy in our lives anymore.
Life has become a chore. It might feel like you’re going mad. Sometimes it even feels so bad that you might even be contemplating suicide.
Furthermore; We often can’t even see a way out of this mindless state of being.
I’v Trained in Mindfulness and CBT for several decades now. This enables me to help you with this incessant worrying.
Mindfulness Counselling Therapy can help us to live a much more peaceful life, helping us to focus more on the present moment, and what’s actually important.
Ultimately, we learn how to worry less and less about trivial things. Things that aren’t really all that important.
Furthermore; Mindfulness Counselling Therapy can help us to deal with more serious issues too. Hence, enabling us to focus on the here and now, as opposed to worrying about the past and things which we can’t change. Like the Imaginary Future!
Mindfulness helps you notice unnecessary worrying which creates anxiety.
Due to anxiety we sometimes spend hours, days, weeks or months worrying about the future and anxiously focusing on what may or may not happen?
Especially Relevant for you here; Is, How you can Learn how to stop engaging in this madness – and learn how to start living again.
Learning how to incorporate several easy to use techniques, tools or strategies into your life to make this possible.
Our counsellors are available to help you. So that you can swiftly return to your happier state.
Male or female counsellors are at your service.
(About) Mindfulness Meditation
Meditation can help us to become less reactive. We are wired to avoid or escape from danger.
For example, we would need to react swiftly if we encountered a charging bull.
However, we tend to react to Internal Sensations in much the same way.
As a result, we create an Internal Battle Zone when we react to external events.
As a rule, this becomes a habitual pattern. A pattern of thought, sensation and this affects our physiology. It’s obviously not healthy.
The Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation.
The benefits of meditation are immense. Harvard Experiments have shown that meditation helps, even at a genetic level.
Above all, helping us with relaxation.
Coupled with, having a profound Impact on our psychological health.

Our Serotonin Levels become higher
Blood Pressure Lower
An Increase in Immune Cells
Coupled with Less Anxiety, Stress and Depression.
