Why Trauma-Informed Mindfulness?
Mindfulness can be a transformational and powerful tool for many people.
It has been scientifically proven to help reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, regulate emotions and be less reactive to stressors, to name just a few of the many benefits.
There’s a widely held belief that mindfulness is suitable for everyone and it’s true that learning mindfulness skills can be hugely beneficial for many people, including those who have experienced psychological trauma.
However, traumatic stress is stored in the body and nervous system, creating a range of inner sensations such as intrusive thoughts, intense body sensations, strong emotions, and pain, which can sometimes make it more difficult for people to practice mindfulness. Additional shields, tools, and adaptations may be required to help people who have experienced trauma to explore what works best for them.
Over 50% of people in the UK will experience trauma at some point in their lives.
