It is a tool for all of us to reflect on our lives, where we have come from and where we are going. It is an opportunity to identify and share our skills, abilities and knowledge about our own life and is particularly useful to help move on from feeling negative about yourself and your future. The tree, a powerful symbol across many cultures, is used to symbolize different parts of the story. You will draw your tree and share your experience with the group.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is specifically designed to help people who have suffered from bouts of depression and to minimise further episodes of depression. MBCT focuses more on our thoughts and feelings and how we relate to them, and incorporates elements of cognitive therapy. MBCT differs from Mindful Self Compassion and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction because it contains specific exercises that enable participants to identify automatic thoughts that lower mood and exacerbate depression, and also supports people in making relapse prevention plans. Regular mindfulness practice enables people to see and understand that certain patterns of mind lead to escalation of emotions; it also allows us to respond and see more clearly what sorts of actions lead to less distress and more nourishing outcomes in everyday life. Group Facilitator Andy Phee is a Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy teacher who has trained in Oxford Mindfulness Centres and the Centre for Mindfulness Research in Practice at Bangor University. He has a background in Community Mental Health Nursing.
