MEDITATION & MINDFULNESS-BASED PSYCHOTHERAPY IN NYC
We introduce accessible Mindfulness skills, meditation techniques and mindful philosophies which may include compassion-focused therapy techniques, breathwork, guided imagery, guided meditation, mindful art making and core mindfulness skills based on a DBT model.
Through our work, you will be introduced to these practices which will help you approach challenging situations with assertiveness, kindness, dignity, and self-compassion. Mindfulness-Based interventions have proven to be effective for treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, substance abuse, insomnia, PTSD, ADHD and obsessive-compulsive disorder (POLLAK, SIEGEL, PEDULLA, 2014).
WHAT TO EXPECT
We may start sessions by offering to guide you through brief mindfulness meditation (always optional). We will then incorporate mindfulness principals and philosophies to address suffering and cognitive distortions based on "Wise Mind", "Core Mindfulness" and "loving kindness" skills. I will also teach you breathing exercises to reduce stress and may use guided imagery to increase overall wellness.
