Mingling Minds uses a unique combination of cutting edge psychotherapeutic treatments to tailor a strategy that is unique to your needs. Mindfulness is at the core of our clinical hypnosis and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) techniques.
Our founder, Sebastian Lean, has spent his life working towards perfecting these strategies:
“One of my first recollections was during primary school when I won a prize that allowed me to visit my local bookstore for the first time. It was here that I chanced upon books about the mind and how it contributed to the experience of life as we know it to be.
“I also discovered a visualization technique (by an American hypnotherapist) while browsing in the audio book section. I practiced it diligently and within a few weeks, I realised that the areas I was focusing on started improving in what appeared to be ‘miraculous’ ways. My studies started to improve, as did other areas of my life, and I soon recognised that there was a very real, tangible connection.
“As I progressed through life, I completed a psychology degree and went on to learn more about the professional field of psychology. I travelled the world and studied with eminent therapists who created the key evidenced-based therapies used widely today. These included training developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn—widely regarded as the father of modern mindfulness—and Dr Aaron T. Beck, the world-renowned pioneer of CBT. I read voraciously too, across all areas of psychology, eastern & western philosophy and most known spiritual disciplines.
“I also participated in various intense training in mindful meditation. Daily meditation has since formed the cornerstone of my effectiveness as a therapist.
“All these experiences have only verified that first encounter in my childhood bookstore. My personal reference library now houses more than 2,000 books, and mindfulness is still key to my self-discipline.”
