When a client is afraid, there’s a practice that can help them stay grounded in the present . . .
. . . instead of getting hijacked by panic and “worst-case scenario” thinking.
And that practice is mindfulness.
In the video below, Tara Brach, PhD will get into how mindfulness disrupts the neurobiology of fear, and she does it with a powerful metaphor that you could share with your clients.
When a client begins to develop their “mindfulness muscles,” that client is more likely to be able to stay centered and calm in a triggering moment . . .
. . . and that can make all the difference between a hasty reaction and a wise response.
Now we’d like to hear from you. What are some questions you have about applying mindfulness in your clinical work? Please let us know in the comments below.
