Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is designed for people who suffer from chronic depression and anxiety. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Research has shown that people who have been depressed or anxious find that learning mindfulness-based skills help considerably to reduce their chances of symptoms returning.
What does MBCT help treat?
- Low mood
- Negative thoughts
- Body sensations such as physiological signs of anxiety and sluggishness
If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. MBCT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat symptoms as they arise.
