The MBCT course teaches meditation and uses CBT exercises to enable us to work with the mechanisms underlying difficult mind states.
This enables us to recognise negative patterns of mind earlier, and helps us develop greater choice and flexibility over how to respond. This builds resilience and confidence rather than running off old, unhelpful patterns of reacting. This course has been tried and tested over 10 years of clinical application and is not suitable for people who are currently clinically depressed.
The Mindfulness courses are led by Kavyashri (Kate Gooch) who is a supervisor with the Mindfulness Network and is on the UK Listing of Mindfulness teachers. You can read more about the teacher on the course information and booking pages below.

Please note: If after attending the Orientation session, you decide not to participate in the course, you must notify the Buddhist Centre within 24 hours of attending it, in order to get a refund to enable us to offer the place to someone on the waiting list. Thank you.
Mindfulness courses include CDs and a workbook and a follow up session to be arranged during the course
