Is Mindfulness the same as psychotherapy or counselling?

While we can learn a lot more about ourselves and develop greater insight into the patterns we have developed over many years, mindfulness practice is not about individual or group therapy. In the courses offered by Susan, support is offered to participants to learn and develop a practice of mindfulness but this is different to the kind of therapeutic support that might be offered by a counsellor/therapist in a group therapy setting. Having said that, those already engaged with a therapist or counsellor often find mindfulness practices to be very supportive of this process.
