Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to help people who suffer from depression, anxiety, and chronic unhappiness. MBCT was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams, and John Teasdale, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of Mindfulness.
Becoming aware of the different modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders is the first step in learning how to develop a new relationship to them.
Beth utilizes the "Mindful Way Workbook: an 8 week program to free yourself from depression and emotional distress" written by John Teasdale, Mark Williams, and Zindel Segal in order to bring people's attention to the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Beth also incorporates Mindfulness techniques in her individual sessions.
