How can Mindfulness help?
The practice of mindfulness offers the skills to observe reactivity, work with emotions and track thinking.
Mindfulness contributes to calm and equanimity when a person feels under pressure, either from within, externally or both.
Mindfulness supports children and adults alike including families dealing with domestic abuse.
When perpetrators of abuse acknowledge their unresolved reactivity, they appreciate the tools to enable a change in behaviour.
Families can engage in creative mindfulness practices together to support each other.
