Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is ideal to develop a greater sense of presence and connection between body and mind. Mindfulness also helps us to get in touch with subconscious thoughts, feelings and behaviours that can stand in the way for our physical and mental health and well-being. Body and mind are in constant communication. If we can make this communication conscious, we have access to the wisdom of the body, and inner resources that lead to development, learning and transformation.
MBCT helps you to access your natural capacity for self-care and to find a harmonious balance and equanimity. When we are under a high amount of stress we become more and more disconnected from our bodies and we tend to go up in our heads where, either we are worried about everything that needs to be done, everything that might happen, or ruminate over what has been in the past. By noticing these unhelpful patterns we can disrupt them and return to the present moment where we through practices and exercises, can strengthen and cultivate an ability to be present for life here and now.
MBCT FOR RECURRENT DEPRESSIONS
In MBCT you learn as a participant to notice and observe patterns in body and mind to increase the awareness around how low mood and negative thoughts affect you, and by doing this you can also break these patterns. By learning to recognise symptoms and learning to develop skills that enrich and strengthen yourself, you develop a foundation to prevent relapses into new depressions. Techniques and exercises from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are integrated in the programme that together with mindfulness, increase the awareness of the patterns of mind and body.
MBCT FOR TRAUMA
MBCT for trauma is a 12-week programme for trauma and difficult experiences that can help soothe symptoms such as fear, hopelessness, frustration, sleeping difficulties and more. The aim of the programme is to give you a possibility to create a safe platform where the trauma can be explored, where memories and experiences can be integrated and through this process, healing can start. Through meditation and exercises we are balancing the nervous system and disrupting negative thought patterns. This process allows you to strengthen your self-worth and the ability to be connected and close to others.
