This paper reports a qualitative, idiographic study employing Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to explore the experiences of therapists who have a mindfulness practice, looking at how this is brought into their individual therapeutic work. Findings focus on mindfulness, conceptualized as a way of being, which emerges as a central theme in all accounts. Three “way of being” related themes are used to illustrate therapists’ experiences of mindfulness as part of their personal life and how this is brought into the therapy room both implicitly and explicitly. The application of mindfulness in therapy is discussed while drawing links with the mindfulness literature.
