Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is another recent development which is specifically designed to aid people who have suffered from recurrent depression or wish to learn how to reframe negative or ruminating thinking. Both MBSR and MBCT have undergone rigorous clinical trials and a large and continually growing body of research underpins the evidence base for Mindfulness as an effective intervention for people with a diverse range of conditions and needs.
Combined MBCT and MBSR Courses are currently being run over 8 weeks at Greenwich Mind .These are open to anybody wishing to sign up but require commitment to regular session attendance over 8 weeks, commitment to a daily practice and homework and ability to participate in a mixed group.
Weekly attendance of each session is absolutely critical for the development of the techniques.
Active engagement with the course material, homework and daily mindfulness practice is made explicitly clear through the workbook and CD’s provided. To gain maximum benefit it is essential that as a participant you set time aside each day to take this on and is a vital component of the course. Some people find this stressful and so you need to be pretty sure you could undertake this aspect of the course.
Once you have completed the course, mindfulness drop -in sessions are available once a month to help you maintain your practice and offer support.
If you are still interested and would like to find out more phone us on 0208 853 2395 and ask to speak to someone about Mindfulness courses. We will be happy to invite you in to talk about the course in more detail or to attend a taster session.
