Turning to clients, we ask them to practice mindfulness on their symptoms, their e-motions and on other responses to the environment. We encourage them to be aware of the way the body is responding to a situation and to learn to 'read' those responses. Our job is to assist them to raise their awareness of the part that symptoms and e-motions play in their lives and, reciprocally, how the life they lead makes it inevitable that the body will need to generate symptoms and e-motions. Our goal in Mickel Therapy is not to try and lead clients to a utopia of no negative e-motions but rather replace symptoms with the full e-motions awareness. This is easier to do with practice of mindfulness.

If you are depressed you are living in the past, if you are anxious you are living in the future, if you are at peace, you are living in the present.
