Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Anti-depressant medications can be very effective in treating an episode of depression. However, research has shown that once the episode has passed and medication is stopped, then depression can recurr. At least half of those treated for a first bout of depression will experience further occurrances.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) aims to identify the links between a negative mood and negative thought patterns and feelings in the body. When a person is aware of the links between how they feel and what they think, they are then able to utilise specific techniques taught to them by the therapist which prevent ruminative patterns of negative thinking occurring and stop the downward spiral from a brief low mood to full-blown depression.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) may be able to help...
- Prevent relapse of depression
- Cope with chronic pain
- Reduce blood pressure

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a type of Psychotherapy based on the testing and questioning of a client's pre-existing thoughts assumptions and beliefs. The aim of CBT is to lead the client into questioning and testing the truthfulness of automatic thoughts and assumptions with the aim of reconstructing unhelpful and unrealistic beliefs that often underly negative emotions.
CBT techniques are tailored to the individual but may include, for example being asked to keep a diary of events along with any thoughts and behaviours associated with them. These are then questioned and tested as the therapist gently leads the client to face activities which may have been avoided for some time.
