"I just want to say how helpful this workshop has been for me. Dr. Ana G. is very well versed in this topic, and she easily adapts the information to the individual's needs. This workshop has changed my life."
I first participated in Dr. Ana Gouvea’s 8-week Mindfulness for Anxiety and Stress program nearly a year ago. The program provided me with a variety of tools to not only learn to practice mindfulness, but also change some of my habits to adopt a more mindful way of living on a daily basis. In only 8 weeks, I experienced significant reduction in my anxiety levels, as well as lower levels of work stress. Even when I was still dealing with highly demanding work days, this program gave me tools to deal with different stressful situations “moment by moment.” Week after week, I felt more and more capable of doing things I wouldn’t normally do due to my anxiety. I found the courage and the self-confidence I had lost after years of living with an anxiety disorder. After the end of the 8-week program, I have continued to regularly participate in mindfulness sessions, learning how to best apply mindfulness to my daily activities and enjoy every single moment and every single breath, while committing to the fundamental practice of self-compassion. I am so grateful to have found this opportunity. I thank Dr. Gouvea for her patience, understanding, and dedication.
