Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Well-being
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy – MBCT - blends mindfulness practices, CBT and group learning to support you to access your inner resources for well-being, kindness and ease in everyday life.
It is one of the most rigorously researched mindfulness-based courses on offer with a range of well documented benefits.
MBCT is an experiential group programme. During the live 8-week course you will be supported to develop the ‘muscle’ of mindfulness through guided mindfulness meditations, movement practices and group discussion all underpinned by CBT practices to facilitate personal growth and change.
