Live in the present moment. Get in touch today on

Mindfulness is a practice that involves paying attention to the present moment without judgment. It involves being fully present and aware of one's thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment. This practice is rooted in ancient Buddhist traditions but has gained popularity in modern psychology and mental health treatment.


We’ll get well together.

Mindfulness for Addiction

Mindfulness can be a powerful tool in addiction recovery. It helps individuals develop awareness of their triggers and cravings, allowing them to respond to them in a more constructive manner. By being present in the moment, individuals can better manage their impulses and make healthier choices.

Mindfulness for Anxiety

Anxiety is a common mental health condition that can be debilitating for many individuals. Mindfulness can help by teaching individuals to observe their anxious thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them. This can lead to a reduction in anxiety symptoms and an increased sense of calm and well-being.

Mindfulness for Depression

Depression is another prevalent mental health issue that can significantly impact an individual's quality of life. Mindfulness can be an effective tool in managing depression by helping individuals become more aware of their negative thought patterns and emotions. By practicing mindfulness, individuals can learn to respond to these thoughts and feelings in a more positive and constructive way.

Mindfulness and Trauma

Trauma can have a profound impact on an individual's mental health and well-being. Mindfulness can help individuals process their traumatic experiences by allowing them to be present with their emotions and sensations. This can lead to a greater sense of control and empowerment over their trauma.

Mindfulness and Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions that can be challenging to treat. Mindfulness can be a valuable tool in eating disorder recovery by helping individuals develop a more positive relationship with food and their bodies. By practicing mindfulness, individuals can become more attuned to their body's hunger and fullness cues, leading to healthier eating habits.

    The duration of therapy varies depending on factors such as the nature of your concerns, your goals for therapy, and your progress over time. Some clients may achieve their goals in a few sessions, while others may benefit from longer-term therapy.
  • Is therapy confidential?

    During the initial session, your therapist will gather information about your current concerns, personal history, and therapy goals. This session also provides an opportunity for you to ask questions, discuss your expectations for therapy, and build rapport.

    The frequency of therapy sessions depends on your individual needs and preferences. Initially, sessions may be scheduled weekly or bi-weekly to establish momentum and progress. Over time, session frequency may decrease as you make strides towards your therapy goals.
