The course aims to help you to become aware of the signs within your body, mind and feelings that tell you to take action to look after yourself. You may choose to accept things the way they are and move on with a renewed sense of wellbeing. Or take some wise skilful action using any new insights you may have gained from the course and practices.
By the end of the course, you will have worked on stepping back from the automatic reactions you have to situations that make you feel worse. You will also build your skills to detach yourself from your thoughts and see them for what they are, just thoughts.
MBCT is most effective if you are currently well but can be helpful after a period of therapy too. Each session will last between 2 and 2.5 hours with exercise to be completed throughout the week. Please discuss this with your therapist if you are unsure.
