Mahatma Ghandi

Welcome to Deep Connection

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and without judgement. It combines with pyschotherapy by inviting us to consciously bring awareness to the whole of our experience, as we are experiencing it in the present moment.

This includes our thoughts, our emotions, our ‘felt-sense’ (the subtle movement of energies/sensations constantly happening in our bodies, which we are mostly unaware of) and also what is happening to us relationally when we are with or think of another. Bringing all of this into our conscious awareness allows us to observe and begin to recognise the subtle, intricate and intuitive interconnection between our bodies and our minds, and a willingness to explore and work with this in therapy is potentially the beginning of a journey to self-healing, understanding and well-being.

What is Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy?

Mindfulness based psychotherapy takes Buddhist psychology as its starting point, integrates this with Western psychotherapeutic development theory and combines them both with the latest insights and research findings from neuroscience.

Buddhism teaches about the nature of the self, western psychotherapy understands how we develop into the self in response to the experiences life gives us and neuroscience (the study of the brain and the nervous system) explains how the self manifests as a ‘felt-sense’ in our bodies in the present moment

Mindfulness based psychotherapy works with the power of our awareness in the present moment to explore the nature of who we are, how we suffer and how we can learn to heal.
