Based on a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model, the aims of this course are to explore an understanding of anxiety via psycho-education, discussion, reflections and exercises. These activities will take place both in small groups and the larger group. The course is designed to encourage development of skills in coping, responding, and managing experiences of anxiety. This will take place through identifying triggers and situations that are likely to provoke anxiety, through identifying thoughts, moods, behaviours and body/physical sensations, and through considering alternative ways of interpreting and responding. The facilitator will make use of examples and scenarios to illustrate CBT principles and to invite participants to practice the above-mentioned skills. Participants are free to not participate in the exercises if they do not wish to do so. Group Facilitator Pedro Queiroz joined MIND in City, Hackney, and Waltham Forest in May 2018 as the High Intensity IAPT Therapist. Currently offering 1:1 therapy sessions and carrying out clinical assessments for the Psychological Therapies Team, Pedro supported and co-facilitated the Introduction to Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy course. In 2017, Pedro was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology from the University of East London. The training focused on the acquisition of knowledge and development of clinical skills in the theory and practice of CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, and integrative practice.

Please note this course is only open for the first 2 sessions, if you wish to join the group after these sessions please do get in touch and we can let you know about the next available course. Participants are asked to not miss more than two sessions during the 8 weeks, if at all possible, as otherwise it will be tough to keep up with and make the most of the course. The goal of the MSC programme is to support people to be more mindful and self-compassionate in daily life. That means to i) know when you are under stress and suffering (mindfulness skill) and ii) to begin to respond with care and kindness (self-compassion skill). The course supports the development of your natural capacities for self-compassion, self-care and present moment awareness. Skills and strategies for working with challenges are developed during the course via a range of mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises, informal practices and group discussion. Our previous clients have found this approach to be helpful in supporting their wellbeing and ability to respond to difficulties. Research tells us that mindful self-compassion can support: • Increased self-compassion, mindfulness, compassion for others, life satisfaction • Decreased depression, avoidance, anxiety, stress • And that all wellbeing gains are maintained over time

8-10 Tudor Road, London, E9 7SN

Please note this course is only open for the first 2 sessions, if you wish to join the group after these sessions please do get in touch and we can let you know about the next available course. Participants are asked to not miss more than two sessions during the 8 weeks, if at all possible, as otherwise it will be tough to keep up with and make the most of the course. The goal of the MSC programme is to support people to be more mindful and self-compassionate in daily life. That means to i) know when you are under stress and suffering (mindfulness skill) and ii) to begin to respond with care and kindness (self-compassion skill). The course supports the development of your natural capacities for self-compassion, self-care and present moment awareness. Skills and strategies for working with challenges are developed during the course via a range of mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises, informal practices and group discussion. Our previous clients have found this approach to be helpful in supporting their wellbeing and ability to respond to difficulties. Research tells us that mindful self-compassion can support: • Increased self-compassion, mindfulness, compassion for others, life satisfaction • Decreased depression, avoidance, anxiety, stress • And that all wellbeing gains are maintained over time

Event Type: Mental Health,
Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest
8-10 Tudor Road, London, E9 7SN

Based on a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model, the aims of this course are to explore an understanding of anxiety via psycho-education, discussion, reflections and exercises. These activities will take place both in small groups and the larger group. The course is designed to encourage development of skills in coping, responding, and managing experiences of anxiety. This will take place through identifying triggers and situations that are likely to provoke anxiety, through identifying thoughts, moods, behaviours and body/physical sensations, and through considering alternative ways of interpreting and responding. The facilitator will make use of examples and scenarios to illustrate CBT principles and to invite participants to practice the above-mentioned skills. Participants are free to not participate in the exercises if they do not wish to do so. Group Facilitator Pedro Queiroz joined MIND in City, Hackney, and Waltham Forest in May 2018 as the High Intensity IAPT Therapist. Currently offering 1:1 therapy sessions and carrying out clinical assessments for the Psychological Therapies Team, Pedro supported and co-facilitated the Introduction to Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy course. In 2017, Pedro was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology from the University of East London. The training focused on the acquisition of knowledge and development of clinical skills in the theory and practice of CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy, and integrative practice.

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.

Please note this course is only open for the first 2 sessions, if you wish to join the group after these sessions please do get in touch and we can let you know about the next available course. Participants are asked to not miss more than two sessions during the 8 weeks, if at all possible, as otherwise it will be tough to keep up with and make the most of the course. The goal of the MSC programme is to support people to be more mindful and self-compassionate in daily life. That means to i) know when you are under stress and suffering (mindfulness skill) and ii) to begin to respond with care and kindness (self-compassion skill). The course supports the development of your natural capacities for self-compassion, self-care and present moment awareness. Skills and strategies for working with challenges are developed during the course via a range of mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises, informal practices and group discussion. Our previous clients have found this approach to be helpful in supporting their wellbeing and ability to respond to difficulties. Research tells us that mindful self-compassion can support: • Increased self-compassion, mindfulness, compassion for others, life satisfaction • Decreased depression, avoidance, anxiety, stress • And that all wellbeing gains are maintained over time

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.

Please note this course is only open for the first 2 sessions, if you wish to join the group after these sessions please do get in touch and we can let you know about the next available course. Participants are asked to not miss more than two sessions during the 8 weeks, if at all possible, as otherwise it will be tough to keep up with and make the most of the course. The goal of the MSC programme is to support people to be more mindful and self-compassionate in daily life. That means to i) know when you are under stress and suffering (mindfulness skill) and ii) to begin to respond with care and kindness (self-compassion skill). The course supports the development of your natural capacities for self-compassion, self-care and present moment awareness. Skills and strategies for working with challenges are developed during the course via a range of mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises, informal practices and group discussion. Our previous clients have found this approach to be helpful in supporting their wellbeing and ability to respond to difficulties. Research tells us that mindful self-compassion can support: • Increased self-compassion, mindfulness, compassion for others, life satisfaction • Decreased depression, avoidance, anxiety, stress • And that all wellbeing gains are maintained over time

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.
