Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is designed for people who suffer repeated bouts of depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
What does MBCT help treat?
- Depression and anxiety
- Food and eating issues
- Low mood and negative thoughts
- Body sensations such as weariness and sluggishness
If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be a good fit for you. MBCT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being. MBCT aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise.
