Stress and Anxiety
Stress and/or anxiety affects each of us at some time in our lives. Unfortunately stress and anxiety can have a major impact on our day-to-day lives, our relationships, jobs, families and our general enjoyment of life. If you are dealing with stress or feelings of anxiety, it’s probably time you came to see us.
Vital Chi have amazing practitioners who enable people to become free of stress and anxiety on a daily basis. Their years of training and expertise make them exceptional practitioners in what they do.
Everyone has their own personal threshold of what they can deal with before it all becomes too much. How we respond to stress or deal with anxiety is also unique to each individual, and is dependent on many factors.
While major events such as losing a job, or a relationship break-up, can be the source of stress and anxiety, sometimes the reasons and pressures are harder to pinpoint, or are small and cumulative. Besides making our lives less enjoyable, or downright miserable, stress and anxiety can manifest in many physical ways, and have a serious impact on your health.

MiCBT / Mindfulness
How can MiCBT reduce my stress and anxiety?
MiCBT is a 4-stage therapeutic approach which integrates mindfulness and some of the basic principles of CBT in order to help people improve the way they feel and change unhelpful behaviours. However, MiCBT helps people make changes in a different way to CBT. While CBT attempts to change maladaptive behaviour by modifying people’s unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, MiCBT helps people learn to develop control over the processes that maintain the unhelpful thoughts and beliefs through mindfulness training. MiCBT helps change the process of thinking, not just the content of our thoughts.
The four stages are:
Stage 1: Mindfulness skills are taught to improve our understanding of thoughts and body sensations.
Stage 2: We learn how to apply these skills to the challenges of human life.
Stage 3: Specifically engages the mindfulness skills in interpersonal and relationship issues.
Stage 4: Deals with empathic understanding of ourselves and others. when you know it is time for healing. When continuing to hold onto old emotions feels too hard and too heavy or when your emotions and your body are done with struggling and feeling challenged, then you know it is time to heal, wisdom is taking the actions to do it now.
