View Full Version : Mindfulness (CBT)

07-05-08, 18:26
I have been referred for about eight sessions of "Mindfulness". It seems to be a sort of CBT with the focus on being in touch with your body and mind in the present moment. I don't know much about it yet, but wondered has anyone else come across it? What's it actually like? Does it work? Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi Jesse

I have some books on this that I'm going to read once I finish my CBT one. They are written by a guy called Jon Kabat Zinn who is a buddhist.

I think its all about focusing yourself on the here and now rather than looking back to the past or worrying about what the future might hold. I do the latter a bit too much!!

I think other members have had experience of this so might be able to advise you further :hugs:

Thanks Guys. I have had a look on the wb and come across Kabat Zinn. I hope it is going to help as I had CAT a few years back and that didn't help. It could have been the psychologist though!! Will let you know how it goes.
