Mindfulness-based therapy is designed for people who suffer from repeated depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of being here now with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times find that learning mindfulness-based skills help considerably reduce their chances of depression returning.
What does mindfulness-based therapy help treat?
- Depression and anxiety

- Body sensations such as weariness and sluggishness
If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. It can help people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise.
Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know may benefit from mindfulness-based treatment, please contact me today for a free consultation. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.
