Contemplative Psychotherapy utilizes Buddhist mindfulness and meditation practices to facilitate healing and growth. Contemplative psychotherapists work to cultivate mindfulness within themselves to lead by example with their clients.
Contemplative Psychotherapy is a good choice for those who want to work through existential concerns about life and death and those willing to try mindfulness and meditation as healing methods.
Mindfulness can help ease stress and anxiety, which come with many different mental health concerns.
Instead of a deficit mindset as some approaches to therapy take, Contemplative Psychotherapy says you are already whole and worthy of a sense of wellbeing. Ultimately, your therapist’s goal is to help you understand yourself in a more full and accepting way.
