What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is non-judegmental awareness and acceptance of everything as it is, including thoughts, feelings, and sensations.

Mindfulness is a way of living. A formal mindfulness practice consists of sitting in meditation. Informal practice is carried throughout daily life as a way to interact with the world around us.

Why Mindfulness?

  • reduce thought rumination

  • lower stress and anxiety

  • boost working memory

  • strengthen focus

  • reduce Depression

  • lower emotional reactivity


Wonderful moment breathing

Present moment, wonderful moment breathing, aligns thought with each breath. Slowing down and concentrating on one task unifies the mind and body. This mindfulness exercise also increases connection, warmth, joy, and openness.

Repeat the following phrases while breathing:
Inhale – Breathing In, I calm my body.
Exhale – Breath out, I smile.
Inhale – Dwelling in the present moment
Exhale – I know this is a wonderful moment.

When to use this technique? Transition moments between activities, during walking meditation, when feeling overwhelmed by tasks or disconnected from those around you.

Mindful walking

Mindful walking is effortless and allows you to become close to the experience of walking, breathing, and smiling. Walking without a physical destination but instead to arrive in the present moment with “concentration, joy, insight, and the momentary enlightenment of aliveness.”

Quick “How to”: Walk with no destination. Focus on your feet as they touch the ground, bodily sensations, and your breath.

When to use this technique? Anytime you are walking – for instance while walking your dog, between transitional moments at work, or during an intentional mindful walk outside.

Harun Kayacan

Clinical psychologist and psychological counselor

When somebody experiences trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. I truly enjoy bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic or stressful experience. I focus on adults and couples, as well as children and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole, and unique beings.

I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have put my focus on CBT – Cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness.

My educational background includes a MA in Clinical Psychology from Halic University in Istanbul (Turkey). I have a BPsych in Psychology from Sakarya University (Turkey).
