What is Guided Respiration Mindfulness Therapy?

Recent empirical research has presented GRMT as a clinical model of breathwork. However, its development actually came about gradually over many years starting around 1978, as Lloyd started to define an approach that worked well as a private practice treatment option that was acceptable to clients and exceeded their expectations.

Virtually all clients who receive GRMT sessions report a profound level of relaxation, but that's just the start.

About Dr Lloyd Lalande

As a teenager in New Zealand in the early 1970's Lloyd was on a quest for deeper self-awareness. Meditation, fasting, self-analysis and cognitive change among other explorations, eventually led to exposure to breathwork. The personally profound and transformational impact of these early breathwork experiences was to have a life-long impact on Lloyd, informing many aspects of his work in private practice counseling, academic work and doctoral research.
