The Principles of Mindfulness
Cultivating non-judgemental awareness of whatever arises in the present moment.
The view that acceptance is a crucial step in change and transformation.
An aim of both mindful and psychodynamic approaches is for the individual to experience the relief and inner confidence that can gradually build as difficult feelings are worked through (approached, rather than avoided) with the support of a collaborative, understanding and respectful therapist.
Recent neuroscientific findings indicate that the experiences mentioned above actually create new neural pathways in the brain
