Meditation and Mindfulness Practices
Mindfulness Meditation can form an important element of the counselling process. It is a form of mental training that cultivates non-judgmental observation, patience, trust, open-mindedness, self-compassion and non-attachment. People engaged in meditation usually feel a deep sense of relaxation. Research has shown that mindfulness practices can have a significant positive impact on personal well-being, including an improved ability to deal with stress, clearer focus, increased positive emotion, and better sleep.
Guided meditation can be done with specific goals in mind. In this type of practice, the client is guided through a process of visualization to help improve focus, confidence and self discipline.
