Mindfulness-Based Therapy

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is maintaining full awareness in the present moment. This can be cultivated in experiences through the practice of observation, acknowledgement, non-judgment and radical acceptance of one's self and others. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is designed for people who suffer from depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines cognitive therapy with meditative practices based on the cultivation of mindfulness.

Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills helps to reduce the chances of their depression returning.

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 right for you. You can separate your self from your thoughts and moods, and learn to recognize a present sense of awareness.
