What is Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy?
Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is based on a combination of Mindfulness Meditation (non-religious) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and is the only evidence-based Mindfulness/Meditation therapy approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).
“Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges when paying attention, on purpose, in the
present moment and non judgmentally to things as as they are” Jon Kabat-Zinn
About the Course
“The core skill to be learned is how to exit and stay out of negative thinking routines”

It is made up of 8, two hour sessions, with one practice session and will teach you how to manage stress, anxiety and improve general well-being.

“A short while back, I attended 8 of the group sessions of Mindfulness meditation and practice that Adrian held in Carshalton – initially very sceptical of the likelihood of anything at all helping me to calm down in daily stressful situations. However – over the weekly meetings practicing Adrian’s very achievable techniques to thinking, along… with his bodyscan breathing meditation – suddenly! I realize I’m calmer! and not getting wound up by petty things. I’m thinking about what I’m DOING, rather than my mind racing ahead all the time. It’s like a big weight of frustration and annoyance has been lifted off me and whisked away! Now I’m noticing all the moment by moment things in day to day life, that actually MAKE my life. I do still find a quiet time to listen to a CD of Adrian’s Body Scan once a week – very relaxing and just re-inforces the thought processes I am SO grateful for Adrian teaching me.” (Five Stars) Read more “Hellen T, Mindfulness Stress Course”
The corporate Mindfulness course provided by Adrian Sonnex at our London based Law Firm is excellent. We are currently offering this as part of our corporate Wellbeing initiative to employees and Partners. The course is delivered in an engaging teaching style with easy to follow practice of mindfulness. I would particularly recommend Adrian to any… other firm as he demonstrates a wealth of knowledge and experience, together with a warm yet corporate delivery. His teaching draws upon a wide range of sources including up-to-date research of the benefits of mindfulness. Overall, the course has proved to be an invaluable experience for employees who attend and an excellent foundation for developing stress resilience. I thoroughly recommend it. Claudia Bruen.
