Mindfulness-Based (MBCT)

Mindfulness-based therapy is a method that is rooted in meditative practices and may incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy. It emphasizes mindfulness, or the ability to be aware and in the present. Therapists can teach patients to tap into thoughts and feelings as they arise. Patients are able to gain perspective and put space between themselves and negative thoughts. Research demonstrates that mindfulness-based techniques are instrumental for decreasing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
