When couples come for therapy, both agree they are in conflict. According to Sartre, conflict is a given of existence. However, we are free to choose how we respond to conflict. From an existential perspective, practising mindfulness is a choice.

This workshop draws from my recent publication on Mindful Relationships published by Routledge.
Participants will practice and explore mindfulness not only in the context of individual practice, but also in the context of relationship therapy.

‘Mindfulness is a simple yet powerful practice. It has the possibility of transforming relationships. It cultivates some foundational attitudes towards one’s self and others. It gives rise to non-judgmental awareness of arising experience, acceptance, presence, openness, spaciousness, letting go, empathy, calmness. It is also a practice of awakening the heart to loving-kindness and compassion for self and others … Mindfulness is offered through the lens of an existential therapeutic perspective which values the uniqueness of every client and every couple relationship. It acknowledges choice and responsibility and the possibilities of relational transformation within the givens of each unique context.’
