The current wave of exploration and interest in Mindfulness started 2600 years ago with the Buddha.

There are significant differences in definition between the original meaning of mindfulness (sati) and its contemporary use.

In the Buddhist teachings there are two different paths of meditation; concentration and mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a starting block to gain insight (vipassana) in the true nature of reality.

I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness within the Buddhist tradition for 15 Years. I use my experience within my therapy practice to find out what is going on within me, so I can be fully there for you.

I might incorporate contemporary mindfulness techniques in therapy if this is helpful. Research has shown that mindfulness is particularly helpful for people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
