With MINDFULNESS I will help you to: *Observe yourself, others and your environment with awareness and without judgment because acknowledging thoughts, feelings and actions, as well as your surroundings, will widen your worldview: ACCEPTANCE BEFORE POSITIVE CHANGE *Create balance between your emotional and rational brain because knowing how to stay emotionally regulated will help you with decision-making from a pro-active place instead of a reactive one: REASONABLE MIND BEFORE EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS *Focus on one task at the time and on the present because mono-tasking and being in the "here-and-now" will help you connect to your purpose: SPECIFIC GOALS BEFORE SUCCESS

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in San Diego with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in San Diego can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as San Diego MBCT therapists.
