Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Women sitting with eyes shut and crossed legs in a parkMindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is used to treat a wide range of physical, emotional and mental health problems such as depression. It is recommended through guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

We accept referrals for adults over the age of 18 experiencing a range of diagnoses, where significant clinical depression is a feature of their symptoms.

Service users will need to be willing to participate in a group programme and be motivated to undertake between-session tasks. These will include exercises aimed at increasing self-awareness, such as meditation and keeping thought diaries.
