Mindfulness therapy provides an extremely effective way of working with obsessive and intrusive thoughts, memories and images and for overcoming the emotional charge, usually fear, that feeds obsessive thinking and leads to compulsive behaviors.
To fully recover from chronic depression we must heal the underlying core emotions, such as fear, trauma, guilt and shame and self-criticism that comes from having a victim mentality. We must also learn how to manage reactive thinking and rumination, which feeds depression. Mindfulness is especially good for managing habitual reactive thinking by teaching you how to change your relationship to your thoughts and emotions so that they do not overwhelm you.
Anxiety is at the root of most emotional suffering and the most effective way to recover from chronic anxiety and panic attacks is to focus on developing a mindful relationship with your fear, one that is based on compassion and friendliness rather than aversion and avoidance. Developing this inner compassionate mindful relationship is critical for psychological wellbeing.
