Mindfulness

Mindfulness can be described as a mental state that is characterized by concentrated awareness of one's thoughts, actions or motivations. Mindfulness has its origins in Buddhism and has lately been adopted by Western Psychology to address a number of medical and psychiatric conditions, as well as chronic pain and stress. Mindfulness Meditation has also been clinically shown to be effective for anxiety and panic, depression, obsessive thinking, strong emotional reactivity, and a wide array of medical and mental health related conditions.

Mindfulness is a brief therapy as it will only take a limited amount of time to teach its key principles. However, the practice and refinement of mindfulness applied in everyday life situations is an ongoing process.
