Mindfulness Meditation is a form of meditation which helps to treat:
It alleviates the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) such as hyperarousal and flashbacks and also helps to reduce physical pain. It plays a part in relapse prevention as patients learn how to recognise and regulate their cravings and associated thought processes.
Mindfulness is about focusing on the here and now and acknowledging and accepting each thought and feeling as it is. It helps patients to recognise and detach from negative feelings, rather than looking for a release with drink or drugs. It leads to a higher level of self-awareness.
Mindfulness has been proven to thicken the right pre-frontal cortex of the brain, the part most damaged by alcohol and drug abuse, and the area responsible for optimism, creativity and well-being.
At Castle Craig our trained therapists use Mindfulness in one-to-one sessions for patients with trauma, compulsive behaviour disorders and anxiety.
