How may Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy help me?

 

Whether or not you suffer from depression, MBCT may help you :

  • to become familiar with the workings of your mind
  • to notice the times when you are at risk of getting caught in old habits of mind that re-activate downward mood spirals
  • to explore ways of releasing yourself from those old habits and, if you choose, enter a different way of being
  • to put you in touch with a different way of knowing yourself and the world
  • to notice small beauties and pleasures in the world around you instead of living in your head
  • to be kind to yourself instead of wishing things were different all the time, or driving yourself to meet impossible goals
  • to find a way so you don’t have to battle with yourself all the time
  • to accept yourself as you are, rather than judging yourself all the time.
