Mindfullness – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Mindfulness: Mindfulness has a varied background being both from Eastern and Western philosophies. Within mindfulness we ask that a client is flexible, open and curious. Mindfulness has an ever increasing evidence base to back up its use within modern therapy, particularly the use of 10 minutes a day of mindful practice to help with anger, anxiety and stress.

Counselling Approach: Within Acceptance and Commitment Therapy mindfulness is used to focus the mind on current activities, to allow painful thoughts to come and go and to decrease the struggle we all experience with our thinking.
