Mindfulness based therapeutic services are widely accepted and research based methods for relieving symptoms related to many psychological issues and can be applied across many different population segments. Its focus is on dissolving barriers to happiness and inner peace, while engaging one’s own internal resources - rather than anxiously seeking fulfillment from external sources of validation or searching for answers. A mindful focus helps us choose our response rather than react to our emotional state.
Mindfulness philosophies and methods originated with Eastern techniques, especially Buddhist meditation. The practice requires that one intentionally notices states of mind and the emotional energy that would otherwise occupy them, such as frightening or worrisome thoughts, and then let them go. The worthwhile challenge of mindfulness based counseling is to observe and accept the present situation and all it has to offer, letting go or postponing judgment, while, all the time, keeping one’s self connected to a peaceful and open hearted state.
Clinical Care Consultants mindfulness focused counseling and support services can help most people regardless of gender, age or previous experience. Mindfulness focused therapeutic services promotes inner peace and acceptance, while also increasing one’s motivation to resolve personal and relationship problems, instead of the dead-end cycle of anger, resentment and feelings of being misunderstood. A peaceful approach to one’s life is definitely contagious! It is our experience that when one partner or family member experiences peace and positive energy within, it often influences their significant others to respond less defensively, more openly, and with an attitude of reconciliation. This approach can create a foundation to create safe and respectful dialogue, with the intention of solving problems while mutually experiencing the calming and restorative effects of mindfulness.
