Sometimes we do a lot of time traveling in our mind. We’re either thinking about where we’re going or where we’d rather be, or we’re going back in time to our past and wishing it was different or we’d been different. There’s a therapy for that!
PsychosisMindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT is designed for people who find themselves sitting in chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills help to considerably reduce their chances of depression returning.
MBCT can help with:
Depression and anxiety
Food and eating issues
Low mood and negative thoughts
Body sensations such as weariness and sluggishness
If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. MBCT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being in the present – right now. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise.
Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know may benefit from mindfulness-based therapy, please contact me today for a free consultation. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.
