The human mind has evolved to wander – in fact most of us spend almost half the day thinking about something other than what we are doing.  Mindfulness practice can train your brain to focus on the moment, rather than ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.  Done regularly, mindfulness can change the physical structure of the brain and help turn the ‘thermostat’ down on the stress response, making us more resilient to daily hassles and bigger challenges, as well as less anxious.  Introducing mindfulness exercises into counselling sessions can be extremely beneficial to clients suffering from anxiety and constant worrying, giving them techniques they can practice independently to develop increased periods of mental relaxation and calm.
