Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy


MBCT combines the concept of Cognitive Therapy with meditative practices and mindfulness. The main idea of this approach is to become familiar with the workings of the mind and to develop a different relationship with them.

How it works. With the therapist’s guidance, the client learns to understand their thought processes and their emotions through mindfulness exercises, and to manage them in ways that prevent depression from coming back.

Who may benefit from it. MBCT is proven to be effective in relapse prevention in recurrent episodes of depression and low mood. Mindfulness practices help stay in the present, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.
