Mindful Therapy, Therapeutic Mindfulness
Mindfulness has become increasingly popular in the West in recent years and is used in mental health contexts as well as in promoting general wellbeing. Many people learn mindfulness because they are experiencing stress and anxiety in their lives which may be rooted in psychological distress. The fields of mindfulness teaching and psychotherapy are therefore complementary and often overlap. Mindfulness teachers may find themselves listening to the troubling experiences of their students and psychotherapists may sometimes find that teaching mindfulness skills is helpful to their clients. This weekend we will look at ways in which mindfulness teachers and therapists might learn from one another. We will reflect on different ways in which mindfulness and therapeutic counselling skills can be integrated, reviewing similarities and differences between different approaches. We will explore limits and boundaries of each way of working and look at ways that mindfulness teachers can bring a more in depth way of listening to the often fleeting interactions that they have.
