Mindfulness means being aware of what is going on while it’s happening, moment by moment.
Through mindfulness, we become more aware of thoughts, emotions and sensations in the body. By
becoming present in this way, we can develop awareness of the way emotional and cognitive
patterns condition us, and recognise our own authenticity and deeper embodied wisdom.
The aim of mindfulness-based psychotherapy is not to change ourselves but to change how we relate to our experience. By recognising our own emotional reactions in the present moment, we discover that we have choice in how we relate to difficulties we face in life and become able to address them.
