Emotion-Focused Mindfulness Therapy

I offer an approach to psychotherapy based in mindfulness practices, specifically Emotion-focused mindfulness therapy (EFMT).

Mindfulness is about paying attention on purpose to the present moment as it unfolds without judgment.  My approach to mindfulness practices is one based in self-compassion, curiosity and tolerance.  At times difficult or unpleasant emotions or thoughts may be occupying your mind, but with a gentle curiosity and with self-compassion you can learn to navigate these difficult emotions with tolerance so that you can better handle life situations.

Emotion-focused mindfulness therapy highlights a mindfulness practice that can help us better navigate emotions in meditation, decreasing suffering, increasing happiness, and empowering us to live more deeply valued lives. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling, so that our feelings help us to better navigate our lives. (www.mindfulfeeling.ca)
