Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy MBCT is scientifically validated for the prevention of depressive relapse. It is part of third-wave behavioral and cognitive therapies.
The name of the therapeutic protocol MBCT which was developed by researchers
J. Teasdale, M. Williams, Z. Segal who by the contribution of neurosciences and cognitive psychology have enriched the stress-reduction program based on mindfulness developed by Dr. J. Kabat-Zinn in 1979. The developed method integrates cognitive therapy techniques and the practice of meditation.
It is a method that allows an awareness of the mode of mind operation (negative ruminations, escape, distraction, frustration, resignation), which by its automatisms amplify psychological distress.
It helps to get free from this psychological distress and automatisms by focusing attention on the present moment and the body awareness.
It is indicated in the support of:
Stress, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, addictions, eating disorders, decision making, difficulty concentrating, emotional regulation, depression, burnout.
Instructor trained at the MBCT, UCL, I propose the training to the mindfulness individually or in groups of 6 to 10 people.
The group sessions are held for 8 sessions, two hours each.
Home exercises are required as well as commitment to participate in the full cycle.
An individual interview (free of charge) is planned for the acceptance of the participation.
