During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness, effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity.

Sometimes in life we can feel lost, misguided, anxious, stuck or even desperate. We find ourselves repeating patterns, doing the same things over and over again, coming up short of opportunities and solutions in regard to our problems. Often times, this is due to limited belief systems instilled upon us, or through the experience of fears, injustice and a need to simply catch our breath. Are you ready to focus on growth, health, fulfillment and recognizing your higher purpose and true potential? Let's release these perceived limitations, ignite passion, heal old wounds, fulfill the option of being true to self and make that change.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Essex 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 Essex can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Essex MBCT therapists.
