Description

The Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Life (MBCT -L)course is based on the original Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT course) and has been adapted by Oxford University Mindfulness Centre to be used in community settings, where people can participate in the programme over 8 weekly sessions of 2 hours. It is intended for people who want to reduce stress and improve mental wellbeing. It is taught in a suitable and safe environment, in a group of no more than 20 people.

Participants will practice mindfulness meditations as well as cognitive -behavioural approaches in ways that are available to all. The course offers a different way of living that supports people to work with distress and difficulties, and enhance resilience as well as realise their potential and experience gratitude.

Participants will learn:

  • to understand the workings of their mind and recognise patterns/mental habits
  • to stand back from difficult thoughts and feelings
  • begin to recognise early warning signs and take action
  • be kinder and more compassionate to yourself

Certificates will be given out at the end of the course.

All proceeds from this course will go towards generating funds to further our charitable aims at Valleys Steps

Please contact us for details on the cancellation policy.
