MBCT

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is the integration of Cognitive Therapy with mindfulness approaches. The MBCT training can help us as Mindfulness helps you observe and identify your feelings while cognitive therapy teaches you to interrupt automatic thought processes and work through feelings in a healthy way. This helps to to reduce the tendency to ruminate, overthink or worry too much about things and/or to recognise behaviours such as avoidance or suppression.

 

MBCT one to one

One-to one psychological interventions that focus on reducing and managing emotional distress. Taking the majority of the MBCT course evidence based practices and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy principles to create a bespoke Therapeutic intervention that can be very effective in the management of emotional challenges. 

 

The 8 Week MBCT Course

The 8 week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (mbct.co.uk)

 The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course is closely modeled on the MBSR with some important differences originally designed specifically to help us deal with depressive mood states. The course has now been shown to be highly effective in helping with other mood states such as anxiety, stress and general emotional distress.  MBCT is included in the NHS NICE guidelines 

8 week courses are run frequently throughout the year, and will be posted on the bookings page. For more immediate inquiries please contact me for more information.
