Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Groups and Teachers

Man and woman sitting with legs crossed and eyes shut Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) teachers within NCM have been providing MBCT groups for eight years, following an initiative to train and provide ongoing support and supervision to staff. As a consequence, MBCT groups are now being run throughout the region with a wide range of populations as outlined below:

  • IAPT services
  • Community/recovery teams
  • Community Assessment Teams
  • Staff counselling
  • Staff stress reduction groups
  • Learning Disability services
  • With cancer patients at Maggie's Centre, City Hospital
  • Psychotherapy Unit
  • Severe and enduring mental health problems
  • Long term conditions
  • Mother and baby mental health services

Outcome measures from service user groups consistently indicate an overall improvement in symptoms with participants rating the programme as very-extremely helpful. A graph demonstrating outcomes for people attending MBCT within Notts Healthcare IAPT service is provided below:
