What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is living in the present moment. It means doing one thing at a time.  Being mindful is being fully engaged in your environment bringing your attention to every second with curiosity and acceptance. Developing an observing mind brings you peace and joy no matter what your circumstances.

What mindfulness is not:

While mindfulness is not the same as meditation, both practices can work hand in hand.  Meditation  is a process of quieting the busyness of your mind –  to be still. The goal of mindfulness is to be aware of your sensations, environmental details, your and other’s feelings and emotions and accept them as they are.

What will mindfulness look like in session?

Mindfulness in session will look like talk therapy with the therapist using various tools and techniques to guide you to be in the present moment. This might include guided meditation, music, games and other sensory activities.

How will this help me?

Research shows that mindfulness reduces anxiety, depression, and general stress. Mindfulness also helps improve relationships, focus, and physical health.

How will mindfulness be helpful with intimacy and sexuality?

Practicing mindfulness helps people notice, receive, and enjoy the love and affection their partners offer. Building awareness of your own experience helps you communicate your own unique sexual voice to others.
