Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an eight week group treatment.

MBCT may be right for you if you:

  • have experienced two or more episodes of low mood/ depression in the past.
  • are motivated and able to commit to attending the group for two hours a week.
  • are willing to undertaking 30 to 40 minutes of daily mindfulness practice


MBCT is not suitable if you:

  • are currently experiencing severe depression
  • are experiencing trauma symptoms
  • have high anxiety i.e. OCD, health anxiety, social anxiety
  • are using alcohol and/or drugs to cope
  • are already receiving therapy/counselling
  • have long-standing relationship difficulties
  • are currently experiencing high levels of personal stress i.e. bereavement, moving house, divorce.


Mindfulness requires some degree of concentration and an ability to sit with unpleasant or distressing experiences without using unhelpful coping strategies such as drinking or self-harming.  A realistic intention to undertake daily mindfulness practice is necessary to join the group.
