How to Integrate Mindfulness into Your Work in a Way That Is Safe, Powerful and Clinically Effective

 

There’s one key difference between a practitioner who is powerfully effective . . .

. . . and others who have more modest results.

The difference often comes down to the right practice. And there’s one practice that’s helped transform the lives of countless clients around the world, even clients who have been stuck for years.

In thousands of studies over the past 10 years, this practice has been shown effective in alleviating stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and even chronic pain.

Mindfulness trains the brain to stay with difficult emotions . . .

. . . so our clients aren’t held captive by painful experiences, or their own changing emotions.

It prepares patients to confront depression with interest, curiosity, and perspective on their negative thinking.

Mindfulness is also effective with clients who feel like they’re never good enough

It becomes the antidote for the need to “measure up” to others that is at the root of so much suffering.

Not only that, it can help your clients finally find relief from persistent anxious thoughts, and respond to life’s challenges with greater presence, grace, and resilience.

But sometimes mindfulness can do more harm than good . . .

It’s complicated. To skillfully use mindfulness practices with our clients, we need to think about:

  • Which clients are suitable for mindfulness practice?
  • Which mindfulness practices are most useful right now for a given person?
  • What is the best way to introduce mindfulness practices to each specific client?
  • How can we adapt mindfulness practices to the needs of particular clients?
  • When someone is having trouble, should we encourage them to continue or to try another approach?
  • What are the best ways to motivate clients to practice at home?

Perhaps most important of all, when is it NOT appropriate to use mindfulness with a client?

Trial and error can be costly.
That’s why we’ve created a program to guide you . . .

You see, you just need a roadmap to help you navigate the many choice points of applying mindfulness in your work.

For many practitioners, there’s a huge gap between knowledge and practice.

The principles and theories are clear, but the missing piece is that map that will show you how to skillfully use these practices with each specific client.

Mindfulness & Psychotherapy is designed to help you integrate mindfulness into your work in a way that’s safe, powerful, and clinically effective.

Scientific evidence shows mindfulness practices to be helpful in working with:


  • Anxiety
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cancer and serious illness
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Mindfulness is not a one-size-fits-all solution - there are many considerations we need to make when introducing it to our clients.

But in the hands of a skilled practitioner, mindfulness can be a powerful intervention that helps our clients become aware of their emotions, grow more present with loved ones, stop avoiding difficult people or experiences, face fears, find relief from crippling chronic pain, and break the cycle of depression.

Mindfulness can:

  • Increase the brain waves associated with neural integration and well-being
  • Strengthen attention, learning, and memory
  • Deepen empathy, reduce reactivity, and improve relationships
  • Reduce experiences of pain, including chronic pain
  • Decrease the frequency and severity of stress, and the symptoms that come with it, including IBS, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction
