What is Mindfulness-based therapy?
Mindfulness-based therapy incorporates mindfulness meditation practices into the therapy session. As clients come to therapy with their unique concerns and requests for support, mindfulness-based therapy allows the therapist to integrate specific mindfulness meditation practices that will enhance the client’s ability to develop their own personal mindfulness practice to support gaining more insight, balance and health in their life.
Mindfulness-based therapy (MBT) concentrates on relieving suffering through the cultivation of three main areas of human development: 1) insight or wisdom, 2) skillful behavior, and 3) loving-kindness and compassion for self and others. The internal narratives most people tell themselves about themselves are stories of self-loathing, self-judgment, self-blame, and self-doubt. In all cases these negative narratives are untrue. The real story of you is one of self-efficacy, lovableness, acceptance, and generosity. Mindfulness-based therapy allows you to experience the distressful contents of mind, and open to your innate radiant, clear, joyful, peaceful and unperturbed mind.
