Reflective practice

The image "Reflection" is by Claudia Markovitch.

Ms Marilyn Miller-Pietroni, adult psychotherapist and previously a lecturer at the University of Westminster says that in her personal journey from psychotherapy to meditation, she discovered that “reflection is a mind that watches itself. It is disciplined and not research-free."

She emphasises that each client encounter is a new one and recommended, “Every health practitioner needs a state of ‘calm receptiveness’ in order to avoid bias arising from the last session, past interaction or a desire for definitive outcome.”
