Here at Iffley Turn Practice we are dedicated to providing a high quality anxiety program helping people like you to restore balance and well being in their life and mental health. At the heart of our anxiety program is Mindfulness...

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a practice of personal development whose origins lie in ancient Buddhist philosophy and practice. More recently these ideas and techniques have been restructured as a very effective therapy for stress and anxiety and called Mindfulness. Mindfulness refers to a particular state of conscious awareness where we are intentionally focused on the present moment in a non-judgemental and accepting way. In its simplest terms Mindfulness is about observation, really focusing the attention on your present moment experience and trying not to judge it whether it be good, bad or indifferent. Letting go of any need to change or analyse your experience and accepting it – just as it is. When we can achieve this state of consciousness it has significant benefits for our mental and physical well being and can help us to respond more flexibly to difficult experiences.

Is Mindfulness the right thing for you?

Mindfulness might be right for you if

  • You have heard about Mindfulness for anxiety but don’t know how to get started by yourself.
  • You may have tried mindfulness yourself and struggled… you may have ended up feeling even more overwhelmed as a result.
  • You feel that getting help and support to learn tools and strategies that are tailored to your needs would be really helpful, versus trying to figure it all out by yourself.
  • You feel your anxiety is getting worse and it’s really getting you down.
  • You are looking for a long term solution and would prefer not to go down the medication route.

Our teachers will help you find the right techniques for your symptoms and will create a tailored plan to match your goals.

We regularly work with people who have tried mindfulness and really struggled. Having an experienced practitioner on hand to guide you through the process and help you find the right way forward in your individual case can make all the difference. Getting you back to feeling like your old self fast rather than struggling to figure it all out by yourself.

If you are still not sure, you might like to try a FREE guided mindfulness meditation.
