Mindfulness for Mental Health



How much of your day is spent on “autopilot” moving from task to task always thinking of what happened earlier or making plans for the future? If you’re like most Americans, your answer is probably the majority of the day. There is another way to approach life. Aspire Counseling has several therapists who use Mindfulness and Meditation as the basis of their practice.  Mindfulness means focusing on the present moment in a nonjudgmental way. Through learning to use the power of Mindfulness, you can improve your overall mental health. If there are emotions of situations you’ve been avoiding, you’ll be surprised how using these mindfulness techniques can help you feel in control of even your most difficult emotions (anger, fear, sadness) or at least improve your ability to face and cope with these feelings. Our therapists are trained and experienced in Mindfulness and Meditation techniques and want to help individuals and families in the Columbia and the Mid Missouri are find peace.  Through counseling, you can learn to incorporate mindfulness into your life and develop a meditation practice that works for you.
