Discovering Your Real Self through Mindfulness Meditation and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Modalities

Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness Meditation as defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn is the process of paying attention on purpose in the present moment non-judgmentally. It makes you more aware of deeply ingrained patterns of thoughts, feelings and actions. Mindfulness allows you to be more present and to observe yourself from a place of compassion and curiosity. It helps manage emotions, cravings, thoughts, and can help you put your life in a positive direction.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (CBT/DBT)

Change your thoughts, change your life.  CBT and DBT are proven psychotherapeutic modalities to help shift thinking, behavior and beliefs that may be undermining your life. As part of Mindfulness, you learn to use your greater awareness of who you are to transcend the issues creating your suffering and become aware of automatic or reactive thinking.

 

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, effortless, natural technique that provides deep rest to the nervous system. Utilizing a sound or “mantra” which has no meaning, it allows the mind to transcend thought and get to a peaceful place within consciousness. TM does not use concentration or contemplation methods. This form of meditation can relieve stress, addictive habits, improve concentration and job performance, lower high blood pressure, and generally improve psychological conditions. It requires no change in lifestyle and is not a religion or belief system.

 

Gestalt Therapy

Formulated by Fritz Perls in the 1960s, Gestalt Therapy takes its name from “Gestalt” meaning “whole” or “pattern”. Combining Freudian psychology with existentialism and Zen Buddhism, Perls invented a therapeutic method that asks “How” rather than “Why”. Gestalt focuses on the body as the repository of memory and attempts to elicit an overall psychological healing based on mind-body relationships. Gestalt techniques include the “empty chair” which utilizes dialogue to resolve relationship issues. Ultimately, we find our relationships are only different parts of who we really are.  

  

Hypnosis Therapy

When we experience challenging emotions, our breathing becomes restricted and we tend to become tight and tense. These emotions become locked in the body. Hypnotherapy is about helping clients release and heal emotions that are preventing them from living a better life. After guiding clients into a relaxed, meditative state, I use guided meditation techniques to help you access and change negative emotions. New, positive thoughts, feelings, and images can then be integrated into your behavior and can result in smoking cessation, weight loss, and pain management benefits.
