Trauma-Informed Mindfulness

Trauma-informed mindfulness is mindfulness practice which has been adapted to the needs of people with experiences of complex trauma. It is important to note that some aspects of mindfulness and meditation can be activating for trauma survivors.

Trauma-informed mindfulness helps people befriend physical sensations, be better able to regulate their emotions , engage more in present moments and reduce the likelihood of being re-traumatised. (D.Treleaven) The right tools are important to support safe mindfulness practice i.e. to encounter one’s inner world without becoming overwhelmed.

Within meditation or mindfulness practice these techniques enable you to focus more on physical activities with present moment awareness, observing and noticing things around you, listening to music. Listening to our emotions is also a form of mindfulness which can support us to move through experiences with compassion.
