therapy“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” Amit Ray

Mindfulness has its origins in eastern buddhist traditions of meditation however western psychology has become increasingly popular in recent years. It encourages us to be in the moment, to fully experience the now. Mindfulness talks about bringing our consciousness to whatever we are doing. To do things mindfully. In a world where multi-tasking is the norm doing thinking and feeling several things at once is standard mindfulness presents an interesting challenge.

Jo believes that dramatic change occurs as a result  of integrating mindfulness into your life.  It offers particular relief from many forms of anxiety including health anxiety and OCD and also has a positive affect on depression.

Jo uses theory and techniques from mindfulness in both therapeutic work and training. Please get in touch with Jo to discuss Mindfulness or any other form of therapy.
