I'M READY, LET'S DO THIS!

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an integration of Mindfulness and CBT. It was originally designed to prevent depressive relapse for people with recurrent depression and it has been shown to be highly effective in treating other psychological issues such as anxiety and stress. MBCT is an evidence based Mindfulness course and endorsed by the NHS.

Mindfulness starts when we recognise the tendency to be on automatic pilot, and we begin to practice stepping out of automatic pilot by bringing mindful awareness to our experiences as they unfold. We spend so much of our time in the 'doing' mode and little time in the 'being' mode, with many of life's precious moments passing us by whilst we are lost in our heads.

With greater awareness we learn to recognise our thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations, our automatic reactions, and learn how to return to the here and now. We move away from getting caught up in the past and the future, and we become able to spend more time in the present.

Over the 8 weeks you will learn how mindfulness can help you recognise when you become entangled in streams of self-criticism, worries and negative thinking, and learn tools to interrupt this process and make wise choices in the face of emotional difficulties. You will learn how to respond rather than react, and figure out how you can best take care of yourself when feeling anxious, low or stressed.

Learning all of these new skills will not only cultivate warmth and compassion towards yourself, but you will also be better able to find balance in your life, opening you up to moments of joy and contentment, a place where you can flourish and transform.
 

i'm so excited to be able to offer you the world renowned 8 week mindfulness based cognitive therapy (mbct) course. doing it myself was the best decision i ever made.

I'm surprised at how much I've improved in a relatively short space of time. This is down to Natalie who has been incredibly calm, reassuring, and knowledgeable throughout. I feel more positive and focused in the future - thank you!

At the start of our sessions I was very afraid to open up and was worried about the sessions but Natalie has helped me so much. Natalie was brilliant and I feel she has really helped me by guiding our sessions to suit my needs. She tailored my therapy to be what I needed - thank you!

How long is each session and how many people will be there?

How long is each session and how many people will be there?

Each of the sessions are 2 hours and take place online via Zoom. It's a small group size (approx. 6 to 12 participants) to ensure everyone has sufficient time to explore what comes up for them during the meditation practices and resulting insights.

What does a typical session involve?

What does a typical session involve?

We will meditate together and then participants will be invited to share their experiences of the practice. We'll explore the weeks theme and you'll learn how to incorporate Mindfulness into your daily life. Some sessions will include CBT exercises to aid learning, and we'll talk through the home practices to build on discoveries week by week.

Do I need any equipment? 

Do I need any equipment? 

No, just yourself and your curiosity to learn. Most people like to sit on a chair, but you're also welcome to sit or lie down on the floor with a cushion when we meditate, whatever works for you. And I usually recommend wearing some comfy clothes and having a blanket to hand to keep you warm during the longer meditation practices.

Is it ok if I've never practiced mindfulness before?

Is it ok if I've never practiced mindfulness before?

Absolutely! No prior mindfulness experience is required. Some people on the course might have meditated before, and some may have had CBT before, and lots will have done neither.
