Non-Religious Acem Meditation
Mindfulness is a Meditation without the
religious aspects of traditional meditation.
Being with yourself in meditation allows you to explore your relationship with yourself through a state of free mental attitude. It is not about excluding thoughts but witnessing thoughts without judgement. I would recommend Mindfulness meditation, and then bringing what you discover to the counselling to explore in a safe confidential space.
Mindfulness is a recognised treatment in the NHS in the NICE Guidelines for anxiety and Depression

Acem Meditation – An Introductory Companion
Inner Strength– The free mental attitude in Acem Meditation
