Mindfulness for mental health and well-being -

Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for depression, anxiety and stress

This eight week course teaches mindfulness skills to facilitate heightened awareness of thinking patterns and body sensations which may contribute to depression, anxiety and stress.

Mindfulness based therapy has proved to be an effective treatment approach in many studies in both Europe and the US.

MiCBT is designed to enhance mental wellbeing and resilience providing benefits in both short and long term through learning a number of mindfulness techniques and experiencing their impact on daily life. It is a practical and powerful way to address issues of recurring stress, anxiety and depression as well as assisting with anger management, coping with chronic pain and attentional issues. MiCBT is developed by Dr. Bruno Cayoun, from the MiCBT Institute and has some similarities to the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn from the University of Massachusetts and British psychologists, Segal, Teasdale and Williams. MiCBT integrates mindfulness skills with cognitive and behavioural techniques.
