Contemplative therapy combines traditional Western therapeutic practices with the principles and philosophies of Buddhism. Contemplative therapy seeks to help individuals work through problematic issues and identify ways to make positive changes, while also encouraging acceptance. Like other types of mindfulness-based therapy, contemplative therapy is designed to help a client’s attention focus on the present moment and achieve clarity. A therapist practicing contemplative therapy will take a warm and compassionate approach, inspiring the client to use their natural wisdom.
