Mindfulness for Anxiety
There are many ways of looking at how to relieve anxiety through mindfulness...
However, using mindfulness for anxiety can be approached with one particular helpful frame of mind; when we are anxious we know one thing for sure - our attention is lost in thinking. This means we are sub-consciously ruminating on a problem which may exist in real life or may not even exist, and we have “lost ourselves” in that rumination. This rumination then creates feelings of anxiety which makes the whole mental scenario “feel” real.
Through techniques used in mindfulness for anxiety, taught by experienced teachers, we are able to short circuit this whole process, and to notice when we are getting lost in anxious thoughts, and to actually free ourselves from believing them. Our attention can then return to the present moment to either appreciate what is really going on, or to reflect on whether the anxious thoughts have any validity and to act appropriately.

"I realise I have always seen myself as a doer and felt it’s important to have constant things to do and lists of things for the future. I didn’t allow myself time to be and that means thoughts came in when I was doing other things like sleeping. This has been such a positive experience. It has left me wanting to do more."
“I have to say though, that despite having six years of private psychotherapy, with a senior accredited psychotherapist, I have found your course to be transformational, both deeply affecting and life-enhancing. Thank you.”
