Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT may be right for you if you struggle with chronic unhappiness, anxiety, or depressive symptoms. It combines cognitive therapy with mindfulness practices to harmoniously work together and change your daily functioning.
Recent research has consistently shown that people who have been clinically depressed multiple times in their life find their symptoms are significantly lessened with mindfulness-based skills. This is because mindfulness practices alter the brain, in as little as 21 days, when practiced consistently.
What does MBCT help treat?
- Anxiety and depression
- Low mood and negative thoughts
- Body sensations such as weariness, fatigue, and sluggishness
- Low motivation
- Difficulty focusing
If you are experiencing any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. MBCT can help you to reconnect with your core, authentic self, separate yourself from mood swings, and teach you how to recognize your sense of self. MBCT can be a valuable tool to reduce depressive symptoms as they arise.
