What is Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) has been developed with the aim of reducing relapse and recurrence for those who are vulnerable to episodes of depression. This empowering way of working has also gained empirical validation. It is needed because the risk of relapse and recurrence in those who have been depressed is very high, and the amount of triggering required for each subsequent episode becomes lower each time depression recurs.

The core skill to be learned is how to exit and stay out of negative thinking routines.

People who implement some of the taught strategies regularly may find lasting physical and psychological benefits such as:- increased experience of calm and relaxation,. higher levels of energy and enthusiasm for living, increased self confidence and self-acceptance and an improved ability to handle short and long term stressful situations.
