Mind Detox Method (MDM)TM
The Mind Detox Method (MDM), created by Sandy Newbigging, is a form of counselling focused on the mind-body connection. It takes into account that our beliefs and thoughts have the power to influence our overall state of physical, emotional and mental wellness.
The Mind-Body Connection
Your unconscious mind is linked with your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which regulates your heartbeat, blood pressure, digestion, metabolism and most bodily functions. Whatever your mind perceives, believes and experiences has the potential to affect the rest of your body.
The Power of Belief
Your beliefs are the conclusions you've come to about yourself (and your body), other people and the world you live in, which guide you in every-day life. It is these beliefs which determine what messages are sent between your brain and your body - they have the power to influence every aspect of your physical functioning, from your digestion to your blood pressure. if you're carrying toxic thoughts about who you are, what you can or can't be, or can't have, you are limiting your health and your enjoyment of life and your success.
What Does it Involve?
MDM is a talk therapy in which the therapist asks a series of specific questions designed to help the client discover the hidden 'root cause reasons' for their problem. Once the hidden reason for a problem is identified and freed from the unconscious mind, it can be brought to the client's awareness and transformed into a new empowering belief, bringing with it a sense of release and empowerment to resolve the problem. The session may involve a guided meditation or tapping on meridian points (Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT).
