Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a type of psychotherapy that involves a combination of cognitive therapy, meditation, and the cultivation of a present-oriented, non-judgmental attitude called “mindfulness”.
MBCT was developed by three clinical psychologists: Dr. Mark Williams, Dr. John Teasdale, and Dr. Zindel Segal. MBCT has been tested in research and proven effective for depression, as well as for anxiety and a wide range of other problems such as ADHD, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and food and eating issues.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness strategies to help individuals better understand and manage their thoughts and emotions to achieve relief from feelings of distress. This type of therapy focuses on teaching clients to make a simple shift in their relationship to their thoughts, feelings, and physical bodily sensations to enhance their emotional self-regulation skills to promote emotional well-being.
In general, MBCT attempts to give clients the necessary tools to combat low moods as they arise. People who learn these skills may then be able to revert to these methods in times of distress or when faced with potentially overwhelming situations.
Clients participating in this therapeutic program will be taught several mindfulness exercises and techniques that they can readily incorporate then into daily routines to foster and develop better mental health.
