Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in London

What is Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)?

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is combination of mindfulness techniques with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) designed to increase understanding and management of thoughts and emotions and alleviate distress. MBCT is typically a time-limited intervention, consisting of 8 sessions. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy promotes an individual’s ability to disrupt negative thought patterns and separate themselves from thoughts and moods associated with symptoms of depression.

MBCT allows individuals to recognise thought and behavioural patterns associated with symptoms of illness and utilise techniques, learned in therapy, to combat symptoms as they occur. The general goal of MBCT is acknowledgement and management of negative thoughts and emotions.


How does MBCT work?

While attending MBCT sessions, you will:

  • learn and practise mindfulness techniques that you may use in and outside of the office. Mindfulness practice may consist of meditation or guided audio recordings.
  • learn and practise breathing techniques and may be asked to utilise this skill in and outside of the office.
  • work with your therapist to identify and process the relationship between thoughts and feelings.
  • be asked to participate in activities that promote awareness such as journaling and breathing exercises.
  • participate in sessions that occur one time per week and last approximately 50 minutes.
