What is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT has been shown in a number of clinical studies to significantly reduce the chance of a recurrence of depression. It teaches you to become aware of the workings of your mind and, in so doing, to recognize where there are choice- points to prevent your mind from slipping back into old patterns. A number of different practices are covered over the 8 weeks, and you will be helped to discover the ones that are most useful to you.

How will the MBCT course be helpful to you?

Clinical studies of hundreds of patients have shown that MBCT can significantly reduce the risk of depression relapse. Here are some things that participants have reported:

• I became aware of the workings of my mind
• I learned to recognize patterns.
• I learned to stay steady, but also to stand back a little
• I could recognize that I have choices other than slipping back into my old patterns.
• I learned to take a kinder, more gentle attitude toward myself.
• I learned to recognize warning signals and take helpful action.
• I learned how to put less effort into "fixing" things.
• I learned how to focus on the here and now.
