Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present moment. To achieve mindfulness, activities such as meditation and contemplation are encouraged. To be mindful is to be aware of all bodily sensations and thoughts. In a mindful state, individuals do not become anxious or concerned with their thoughts. Rather, they can observe them without indulging in any negative behaviours. Mindfulness has been found to alleviate symptoms of compulsion and addictive behaviours.
Practising mindfulness during therapy may be difficult at first as it requires a patient to simply sit with their thoughts rather than act upon them. However, over time a patient will become used to practising mindfulness. Therapies such as person-centred therapy (PCT) and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT) cultivate the act of becoming mindful of one’s present state of mind. As a patient becomes mindful through meditation and observation, they can better understand the root of unwanted behaviours.
Observing negative thoughts without indulging them can be difficult, especially if you are prone to anxiety or stress. Here at Psychology Scotland, we acknowledge the challenges you face in your day-to-day life. We have prioritised creating a comfortable and hospitable environment which welcomes patients from all walks of life. Whether you are new to therapy or have existing experience with psychological counselling, you will be safe to work on your issues with us. No matter how small it may seem, Psychology Scotland offers a cohesive support network to help you maintain an improved state of wellbeing.
Our professional psychologists are proven in their fields of expertise and use treatment programmes that are supported by strong empirical evidence. After an initial assessment and consultation, you will be advised to take a therapeutic intervention that best suits your needs. Psychology Scotland takes your interests to heart, and you can be assured that the treatment offered will reflect this. On top of the treatment programme, you will be provided with the skills to maintain a positive mindset long after you have left therapy. Our skilled therapists want to ensure that you have the tools and knowledge to live a healthier life for both you and your loved ones.
If you are recommended a course of mindfulness, whether it is as a standalone treatment or part of an integrative approach, you will begin to see the results quickly. After around eight weeks of treatment, you will notice how you can look at thoughts or worries without them interfering with your mental welfare. Mindfulness is great for anyone who struggles with anxiety issues or stressful situations. Promoting a mindful state will aid you in your career as you will be able to cope with difficulty better. As well, you can begin to build better relationships with your relatives. If these are issues you want to work through, then it is the right time to enter one of our therapy programmes. Psychology Scotland understands that taking the first step is often the hardest, and we want to be with you on your path toward a better future.
