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.

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.

Meaningful relationships have a positive effect on our wellbeing and making sure these stay positive and healthy is very important to us all. During this course you will have a better sense of what relationships are and have an overview on what a healthy relationship is and what its boundaries are. This 4-week course looks at how to maintain positive social interactions, establish boundaries and effective communication. This is done by identifying emotions and developing a feelings vocabulary. We will develop tools to practice healthy boundaries with oneself and with others by looking at personal anxiety as a helpful emotion and distinguishing it from sometimes unhelpful ways of responding. We will also be looking at a range of strategies to enable you to distinguish healthy relationships from unhealthy ones.

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

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.

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.
