Break the cycle of anxiety, stress and unhappiness with MBCT, an evidence based course co-founded by Oxford University UK

About this event

"Thanks to the MBCT course, I now have a good relationship with my mother-in-law! It takes time, patience, consistent effort, and mindfulness to get to where we are now. I am very grateful!" - Carmen Sep-Oct 2021 course


Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) was designed in Oxford University to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. The heart of this work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterise mood disorders while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to them. MBCT was developed by Dr. Zindel Segal, Dr. Mark Williams and Dr. John Teasdale.
