Louisville Marriage and Family Therapist, Megan Bayles Bartley LMFT, Expands Her Counseling and Meditation Practice by Launching the Louisville Mindfulness Center

Megan Bayles Bartley, a well-known marriage and family therapist in Louisville, KY, is excited to announce that she has expanded her counseling practice by opening the region’s first mindfulness center. After seeing an increase in demand for her therapeutic and meditation services, Megan hired two additional therapists to join her practice and to help establish the Louisville Mindfulness Center.

The Louisville Mindfulness Center mission is to help participants find peace and joy within themselves and their relationships through therapy. Megan, and her new team of therapists, plans to provide the necessary mental tools available to clients, so that they can more effectively deal with life’s stressors in a practical manner.

Some of the therapeutic approaches offered by the Louisville Mindfulness Center include the following:

  • One-on-one sessions that address an individual’s specific needs in that moment of time. During these sessions mindfulness practices that will help relieve stress associated with the life event in question are discussed.
  • Group classes that are affordable opportunities to be introduced to the practice of mindfulness. Some also get a “refresher” course for those who need to get back on the right track towards mindfulness.
  • One-hour mindfulness meditations that introduce the practice of mindfulness to newcomers. These also help refocus individuals who have strayed from a personal path towards mindfulness.

Megan is making it easier to access therapeutic services incorporating a different view of mindfulness in Louisville, KY. She hopes that as a result individuals will be able to decrease their levels of anxiety. The coping skills taught are designed to calm a person and help them think in more peaceful and joyful terms.

Mindfulness Exercises

For those of you who have been in my class, “Mindfulness for Anxiety & Irritability,” here are some of the guided mindfulenss exercises​ we have done in class.

These exercises are from the book, “Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World”

Are You Feeling Empowered or Powerless?

When we allow our emotions to be controlled by someone else we hand over our power and that leaves us powerless.

When we get a spark of anger or hatred we have to be aware of how we feel and actively choose to not feed that feeling. (How we build new neural pathways.)

What we feed grows.

If we feed the anger and hatred it grows…inside of us…and emanates from us. Essentially we become what we dislike. When we choose to be the peace, love, and joy we want to see in the world, we become empowered, we retain our power, and we emanate peace, love and joy out into the world.

Hence the saying, “Be the peace you want to see in the world.”

What’s With All This Talk About Vibrations?

I love thinking of things in new ways.  It helps me in my work with my clients.

The link below leads to a thought-provoking clip from Christie Marie Sheldon about vibrations. She references a fascinating book by David R. Hawkins, MD, PhD about Applied Kinesiology and vibration calibration called Power vs. Force. Check it out!
