Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Human brains are very powerful, but sometimes the way our minds work can become very destructive – and often without us really realising! We can get drawn off into automatic patterns of thinking that lower our mood. Learning to notice these patterns arising, becoming skilled at standing back from the thoughts, and getting out of automatic habits are the aims of MBCT. Using practices that draw on meditation, observation and relaxation, this therapy is particularly useful for people who have had recurrent depressive episodes or recurrent patterns of anxious thoughts or worrying. MBCT is now recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (http://www.nice.org.uk).
