Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a group program that was developed in the 1970’s and is based on meditation techniques developed by Buddhist monastics over a period of thousands of years. MBSR can help you reduce anxiety very quickly. If practiced regularly over a period of 8 weeks you can greatly reduce daily anxiety or the regularity of panic attacks.  

MBSR can also help you learn how to “feel into your body.” If you feel disconnected from your body or from bodily needs MBSR can help you reconnect in a gentle way. I primarily use MBSR to help stabilize clients experiencing high anxiety and help them prepare for other types of work which can transform the underlying causes of anxiety. Meditation techniques can help you build up internal resources so you have the strength and focus for more challenging therapeutic work. 

I have lots of clients who say “I have never meditated” or especially “I can’t meditate, I know because I tried.” I am an experienced meditation instructor and I’ve been adapting MBSR for individual therapy for over 10 years. Everyone can learn to use these approaches with the proper support.
