MINDFULNESS BASED THERAPY
"Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience."
Mindfulness Based Therapy (MBCT) involves a combination of cognitive therapy, meditation, and the cultivation of a present-oriented, non-judgmental attitude called "mindfulness" (Schimelpfening, 2021). MBCT utilizes elements of cognitive therapy to help you recognize and reassess your patterns of negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts that more closely reflect reality. On average, MBCT was shown to reduce the risk of relapse for people who experience recurrent depression by nearly 50%, regardless of their sex, age, education, or relationship status.
