MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) Wednesday evenings start 13 Sept 2017

For Stress, anxiety, depression, worry, sleep and life difficulties.

Mindfulness will help you gain more meaning, value, purpose and joy in your life.

Our Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) 8 week course follows the Oxford evidenced based training to prevent depressive relapse.

Mindfulness is designed to help you handle difficult thoughts, feelings and moods by learning to respond rather than react to life's difficulties.

You will learn the core skill of 'mindfulness' - a way of of being present in body, mind and the world around you. This enables you to cultivate and increase awareness and offers potential for positive changes in your life.

This course is not for people who are currently depressed.
