Mindfulness enables you to focus on, and be present, in the moment. Your brain has been trained over many years to think about everything, which is an important coping mechanism. As a consequence, now, and due to the amount of mental stimulus you are exposed to during the course of a day, you may find you are unconsciously constantly sifting through dialogues in your mind. As a result you may often either live in the past or the future, unable to stop the constant mental chatter in your brain.
One advantage of being mindful is that it allows you to respond to situations with calmness and composure rather than reacting emotionally in a “knee-jerk” fashion.
How does mindfulness help you to do this?
Mindfulness helps to extinguish the constant chatter. It is a great tool to reduce the intensity of the unhelpful thought processes in the brain. When I work with you I will help you to do this by accepting the thoughts are there and gently bringing you back to focus on a task. I will also help you to maintain an open, non-judgmental stance. The bonuses for you are improvement in your productivity, less procrastination and reduced stress levels.
At Crystal Clear Coaching we offer bespoke mindfulness sessions. Your session will be tailored to suit your needs to ensure you get the right session and benefits for you.
Mindfulness works effectively alongside Coaching sessions.
"Vanessa’s services were invaluable in enabling me to deal with several self-destructive and addictive
behaviour patterns that were holding back my personal development and keeping me stuck in a
vicious circle. Vanessa’s sensitive and professional manner quickly gained my complete confidence
and her techniques in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy were highly effective in enabling me to
identify and tackle negative habitual thought patterns. Furthermore her practice of mindfulness
techniques are an excellent complement to her capabilities. I would recommend Vanessa to anyone
who is suffering from self-destructive patterns of behaviour and has reached the point where they
would really like to change" Ramin
