Who is the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course suitable for?
All our courses hold a recognised qualification and are therefore ideal for mental health professionals, therapists, educators, coaches, church societies and in fact any adult wishing to enhance their own wellbeing or further their skills in mindfulness. We also offer courses to corporate clients.
The courses listed below are highly experiential MBCT courses that combine the practice of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy. The MBCT course is recognised by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) as a treatment for depression and anxiety as well as a range of other health realted issues and 75% of doctors would recommend MBCT to patients with mental health problems.
The 6 week (16hr) course will help you explore habitual modes of mind that characterize changes in mood and at the same time, help you develop skills and a new relationship to these states.

Is Mindfulness for everyone? Mindfulness is not for everyone. Someone suffering from Post Traumatic Stress for example may find it very difficult to sit still because it allows them to focus on feelings they have been trying to avoid. This can intensity the feelings of stress and anxiety in the body. There are other reasons why mindfulness may not be suitable which is why it's very important to train with someone who has knowledge of mental health issues if delivering an MBCT course. That way they can offer instruction on how to go about mindfulness in the correct way. Before being accepted onto a course, you will be sent a screening tool.
We encourage you to shop around and make comparisons before deciding.
