Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is a model where the clinician educates the client on strategies to help them learn how to give attention to their thoughts.  Learning to accept your thoughts without criticism is one of the first steps to this approach.  Once attention is given to your thoughts clarification increases with the help of your counselor regarding the negative thinking you may be holding onto.  Negative thoughts can lead to poor mental health and depression.  Therefore, once these thoughts are identified truth surfaces and you learn to be more mindful about where your attention gravitates. By becoming more aware you learn to choose how you are going to think and therefore react to situations.  This approach has been found to be helpful with the effects of anxiety and depression.
