How do I connect with you?

You may have read about, heard about or listened to your therapist talk about “Mindful Communication”. It sounds good right, but what does it really mean?

1. If you are using “mindful communication” very simply, you are have chosen to communicate with your partner in an effective way. So, at its most basic, it’s about having awareness about yourself and your partner’s communication style, especially in the moment and choosing to do something different.

2. If you are using “mindful communication” then you have chosen to stop conversing when the conversation becomes unproductive and/or negative.

3. “Mindful communication” means that you have the chance to be the listener or the speaker. You will learn tools to help you share what you think and feel while your partner learns to listen to you with openness and without the need to win or to be right.

If you want to learn specifically how to use “mindful communication” consider coming in for a few individual or couple sessions to learn the skills. You can practice at home as well as in your session.
