Mindfulness Meditation

mindfulness meditationMindfulness is learning to live in the present moment, with a less judgemental mind. It can help you to be more accepting of what is happening within and around you.

If you have been suffering from anxiety- perhaps your whole life- mindfulness may just be the answer for you. Warren Gibson is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years experience in mental health.

In his 6 week Mindfulness Meditation for Anxiety Program, you will learn about the following:

 

  • Letting go of things you cannot control or change
  • Stop constantly worrying about the future
  • Not letting your anxiety dictate what you can and can’t do
  • Being gentler with yourself about the mistakes you’ve made in the past
  • Living in the present moment
  • Understanding that your mind is like a time travelling machine
  • Realising that not everything you think is true
  • Learning that trying to control your anxiety can make it worse
  • Making room for your emotions rather than battling with them
  • Discovering that sometimes the less control you seek, the more control you have
  • Doing things you value and not letting your anxiety dictate your behaviour
  • Learning how to meditate- and yes- it really is easy to learn!

All sessions are one-to-one and are conducted by Warren Gibson, who has been trained in mindfulness meditation and has a particular interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). You will be asked to do a small amount of practice between sessions. Each session lasts for about 50-55 minutes. If you’d like to learn more about mindfulness, please call Warren on 0409 237 064.
