Mindfulness is hugely beneficial for many mental health purposes. It can improve many psychological symptoms, including: attention problems, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma symptoms, and more! I am trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and am able to offer mindfulness coaching based on these mindfulness theories, philosophies, and practices. Together we can explore mindfulness theory and practice. *I will be starting a mindful parenting group in January 2018* Please contact me if you are interested, and for pricing details.
If you are interested in starting your own practice, please feel free to use this free audio recording of a body scan meditation. The body scan is a great practice to start with for beginning practitioners. It focuses on bodily awareness, and is helpful for feeling grounded and relaxed.
