Derived from Buddhist origins, Mindfulness is a meditation practice that has become popular in contemporary psychological therapies today. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression, stress and anxiety - whilst improving self-esteem, problem-solving abilities, concentration, relationship satisfaction and general well being.
Through Mindfulness we can train our minds to pay attention to what we choose, rather than letting our minds take over and get carried away. We learn how to become more aware of our thoughts - allowing us to gain distance and perspective - instead of getting caught up in our minds chatter. Mindfulness can help us to become more productive and effective and improve performance across all areas of life.
