What is Mindfulness and how is that used in psychotherapy sessions?

The ability to remain in non-judgmental (non-reactive) attention while surrounded by challenging life circumstances can be difficult.  The self-regulation exercises that Dr. Kathy teaches at her private practice in Jupiter called mindfulness, clients learn how not to engage the fight or flight response associated with stress.  The mindfulness tools incorporated into the FUN™ Program include breathing exercises, mental imagery, emotional freedom technique (EFT), movement and self-inquiry to create new habits (it takes 21 days to change a habit). Taking charge and using this tools instead of habitual ways of reacting, clients can release and decrease the emotional charge and implement calming, peaceful ways of coping.
