Downloadable Article Mindfulness Explained

Mindfulness practise helps us to disengage from being consumed and compelled by the question: What am I supposed to do now? Mindfulness practise involves simply identifying our body / felt response in the very moment of feeling confronted by a perceived threat. A perceived threat moment can be the blank-bored eyes of a seemingly disinterested child if you are a teacher or parent. It can be the rejecting stare of a lover or employer in flight. Mindfulness practise involves awareness of one’s body felt response in that perceived-threat moment without recourse to usefulness. It is just awareness for its own sake. Therefore, there is no judgement about relevance of the awareness consciously linking the awareness back to the question: what do I do now? Mindfulness creates a space for your unconscious sense of safety and common sense to inform action in that nothingness or no-agenda space.

Individual & Couples Counselling Psychology Preston Melbourne

John Bacash Psychologist

We need to hold that empty space. We need to hold that no-agenda space, a certain type of nothingness. We can do this by embracing openness and by accepting unknowing. Add to this faith in our mysterious, gifted and true selves. Then we discover spontaneity and creativity, rationality and love as one living experience.

John uses mindfulness approach for adjustment involving anxiety and depression, couples' conflict and life transition issues. He prioritises mindfully negotiating needs and vulnerabilities, values and goals as an approach to Couples Therapy. He normalises experience of depression and anxiety by processing possible solutions and options using non-judgemental awareness, Mindfulness.

John identifies our respective comfort zones and aversions, our predictable and unpredictable world views, our knowing and unknowing domains by using Jungian Type Psychology, the Enneagram and Raymond Cattell’s Sixteen Personality Factor Test. Together with non-judgemental awareness, Mindfulness, and Meditation these psychometrics assist in relationship counselling and individual counselling.

Finally, John is a strong believer in considering the question: ‘Why now?’ What is presented as the problem is often not the real reason a person decides to see a psychologist. A focus on timing can normalise our experience avoiding the need for labels, endless analysis of the past and pretentious predictions about the future, about what one should or should not do.
