Mindfulness allows us to practice being present – with oneself and the surrounding world; guiding us to move from thinking into sensing and experiencing. It supports a balance between relaxation and vividness, improving a sense of clarity and stability of mind.
Mindfulness encourages us to look at how we relate to the ever-changing circumstances of life, and to approach this with an attitude of openness and kindness.
Bianca guides meditations for groups and within counselling sessions when appropriate. She is a qualified to teach MBSR – Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and teaches courses in English in Geneva. She also teaches MBCT for cancer.
Counselling helps to bring awareness, acceptance and change during times that may be difficult to move through. A non-judgmental, supportive and confidential space is given to guide this process. Bianca works with current challenges and long-standing issues. Her approach is guided by Western and Eastern traditions of psychology, which draw from the following trainings
Person Centred Therapy - Rogerian
Cognitive Analytical Therapy
Family Constellations - Systemic Constellations
