Learn to manage anxiety & prevent the relapse of depression.
What is MBCT?
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based group therapy providing tools and strategies for preventing depressive relapse, as well as reducing acute depression, anxiety and stress.
We recognize that our in-person MBCT program is not accessible for all, and so we now offer MBCT Online, allowing you to participate from the comfort of your home or office, wherever you may be.
Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is designed to bring awareness to the habitual negative thinking that leads to depressive and anxious spirals. Combined, MBCT interrupts how we habitually react to situations, so we can choose to respond in more skillful ways.
Research has demonstrated MBCT is as effective as antidepressants in the prevention of depressive relapse or recurrence. (Kuyken, 2015)

Individuals experiencing moderate anxiety or depression and people with a history of depression who are unable to attend an MBCT in person.
