We provide training in MiCBT for individual clients – typically takes 8-10 weeks but may take longer depending on the complexity and severity of the problems. Medicare rebates are available of those with medical referral. To discuss your needs do give us a call.
MiCBT groups are offered throughout the year.A group program is 8 weeks in duration and requires commitment to daily mindfulness meditation practice (we strongly recommend twice daily) and to attending the weekly two hour classes. We have been running groups since 2009 and the feedback is always very positive. Our recent research confirmed the effectiveness of the group based program. that the program enables significant change.
Consolidating one’s mindfulness meditation practice can be extremely useful. We offer free monthly after work sessions (3rd Thursday of the month at 5pm) as well as our full afternoon sessions. These provide a much needed mini-break in stressful or exhausting times. We offer several of these sessions each year and encourage those who have experienced the benefits of MiCBT practice to come along.
