I used to feel stuck with clients, treating the same symptoms session after session, but seeing little progress. Does this sound like you?
I was spending my days seeing client after client, and they were all anxious, panic-attack prone or just unable to cope with stress. I was of no help. I was stuck in a rut treating symptoms; focusing on what was wrong rather than treating them as an individual and reinforcing what was right.
And then I found Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)...
Desperate to find something better for myself and my clients, I walked into a meditation class with an amazing, dynamic and confident teacher. After one session, I was more energetic, better able to cope, and found myself more attentive with my clients.
This caring and incredible instructor was Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of MBSR.
That was 30 years ago, and since then, along with the help of Jon Kabat-Zinn, I have been able to transform my life and my practice using the very principles I discovered at that meditation class. I became an instructor alongside Jon, started my own practice, and was beginning to see incredible treatment outcomes with my clients. Incorporating MBSR into my sessions re-energized me and made me more confident in myself and my clinical work.
This evidence-based approach changed my life and has changed the lives of many of my clients. Now I want to share these strategies with you because I know that this work will transform the psychic and physical pain in your clients' lives.
These tools are powerful and simple, and you can immediately start incorporating them into your practice to give your clients the skills to live in the present and put stress and pain behind them.
Here's to healing,
