Mindfulness- and Awareness Training

With some patients, it makes sense to use "Mindfullness Training" to the healing process to facilitated. The Mindfulness Meditation is a way to work with emotions and learning how to deal with them. I share a process in three phases:

Bewusstwerdungsphase: You get to your negative thoughts and destructive thought patterns consciously becoming. Mindfulness is used here to initiate this awareness of the thought process and the feelings. This enables you to build a certain distance from your thoughts and to act as observers. This is the basis for the second phase.

change phase: The aim here is to let go of old thought patterns and to incorporate new ideas. Are consciously trying out new ideas and concepts that act against the negative thought patterns during the Depression. I will help you to develop a new way of thinking, the old, problematic patterns, have been identified in the Bewusstwerdungsphase, counteracts and thus the depression weakens more and more. They are becoming more aware of your own so more "self-confidence" develop and Straheln the outward, is a process of change, which I gladly support you.

The resolution phase: Here we will explore, how well the new thought patterns work in your everyday life. Moreover, it comes consciously perceive the changes in thinking and thereby obtain the progress and to ensure more. You might want, if you have depression only control still continue to work with me to gain changes in other areas or stop the treatment. I respect your choice to take either short-term or long-term counseling treatment claim.
