What does this mean? Mindfulness is awareness that arises from paying attention in the present moment and is non judgmental. We have no training in mindfulness all we have is training in thinking, This is about being present, heartfelt and paying attention to thoughts and embracing them with affectionate attention. Knowing that we are already whole, there is no place to go, and best to start where we are. We need to wake up and become more aware, to cultivate awareness and intimacy in our lives which happens naturally. “We have to learn to fall awake”- Jon Kabat Zinn.

As a therapist I leave a lot of space for the client in silence. I am not attached to my agenda for them and trust that they, even in pain, are whole already. I hold space for healing with open - hearted spaciousness. My non - verbal belief is you are already okay, instead of a model that has to do with fixing you. I believe clients are finding their own way to wholeness with my support. I believe they are already whole, and a part of this person has not been touched by their trauma. It is that part of them that seeks out my help, and I accept them as they are.

We continue in this relationship and work towards a client’s full capacity by establishing safety and being real together. I re-introduce the person to themselves and this can feel like oxygen to them, air, spaciousness, calm, peace. It is not about doing, it is about being together in the moment. We do this together by moving towards, not staying in, our mind/thoughts only, which tends to focus on the past or future rather than the present. It is important to allow the wholeness of body, mind, emotion and spirit which we are, even if we do not know it. To come to terms with things as they are with compassion and awareness. I feel it is a privilege to be part of this adventure with my clients and it is a radical act of love.

Therapeutic Self Hugs- If there's no one around to extend a long, deep, healing hug which is a power house of calm, where you wrap your arms around yourself with intent to calm or swaddle yourself in a blanket. Weighted blankets are also extremely helpful at calming the body.
