Stress Management Therapy Melbourne
Maintaining the work of eminent Australian psychiatrist, Dr Ainslie Meares, Pauline McKinnon and her associates offer programs specialising in anxiety relief and stress management therapy. Melbourne-based, Stillness Meditation Therapy Centre (SMTC) provides health enhancement and wellbeing for adults, children, the workplace and schools – through authentic ‘stillness’, the original therapeutic meditation.
Stillness Meditation Therapy (SMT®) is a simple and unique meditation. It powerfully reduces anxiety, relieves the symptoms of tension and provides effective stress treatment while enhancing ‘living calm’ for modern Western society. At the SMTC we also offer expert counselling and psychotherapy solutions and support in dealing with life matters.
In some cases, anxiety and stress symptoms may relate to specific life challenges. Our counselling experience and expertise may assist in resolving issues through practical understanding and implementation of change. We take stress management therapy seriously and aim to help our clients make positive changes in their lives through reduced anxiety and tension levels.
(SMT®) is a medically based model developed by Dr Meares in the 1950’s, and is not related to any culture or religion. This therapy is significantly different from classical or mindfulness meditation by the absence of focus, concentration or any cognitive activity. In this way, people are helped to let go of their stress and tension simply and naturally in deep global relaxation. SMT® has assisted countless people around the world to conquer fear, reduce anxiety, overcome stress and discover personal freedom, calmness and effortless living. Find out how SMT® works
Founding Director of the Stillness Meditation Therapy Centre, Pauline McKinnon, discovered the genius of Dr Meares when enduring a crippling state of anxiety, depression and fear which ruled her life for 8 years. Over 30 years later she continues to offer Dr Meares’ ground-breaking work, as it paved the way for the use of meditation as a form of therapy for anxiety and stress related symptoms.
With a team of expert practitioners, the Stillness Meditation Therapy Centre delivers results in a caring and secure environment. We help people from all backgrounds and across the life span to improve their quality of life through our range of treatments. We can help with anxiety and depression, help people take control of work-life pressures, be more productive, and generally feel better about themselves.
A study of 100 clients who completed our standard stress management therapy program and regularly practice at home, revealed a 54% reduction in their symptoms and equivalent life improvement.
Based in Melbourne we also offer an Intensive SMT® program for interstate and overseas clients. This gives people outside of the city the chance to take advantage of our exceptional services for stress management therapy through reduced tension and anxiety.
SMTC offers Melbourne based people (and others throughout Australia) seeking relief, a successful range of solutions and treatments. Our services include regular meditation sessions, corporate meditation, and programs to assist with depression and all anxiety related conditions.
