Is it for me?
Mindfulness is a wonderful practice. It helps us explore how our mind works. This process of exploration can be uncomfortable and challenging at times.
For this reason, we do not recommend that anyone with chronic or acute depression, anxiety or other mental health problems or instability embarks on a mindfulness programme, at least without the close support of a health professional.
Mindfulness, whilst deeply therapeutic, is not a therapy as such. It is not a replacement for counselling or other therapeutic, psychological or medical interventions.
Rather, it is an opportunity for growth and unfolding.
