This therapeutic modality is designed to help clients who suffer recurrent bouts of anxiety, depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness practices. Works on being acquainted with the mind that often characterizes mood disorders while learning to develop a new relationship with them.
How does it work?
Learn how to use cognitive methods and mindfulness meditation to interrupt the automatic processes that triggers depression.
- Learn how to recognize the sense of being and to see oneself as separate from their own thoughts and moods.
- The disconnect allows the client to feel free with thought patterns where negative messages may be replayed over and over.
- Learn to develop a sense of awareness and separation between thoughts and emotions with one’s self. Clients find in treatment that while emotions and self-occur simultaneously no longer exist in the same dimension.
- Gives clients the tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise.
- Finally, learn skills that may then be able to revert to these methods in times of distress or when faced with potentially overwhelming situations.
