Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Integrating Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach to counselling that combines cognitive-behavioural techniques with mindfulness practices.

At Breland Counselling, our MBCT sessions are designed to help clients develop greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and resilience in the face of life’s challenges.

Understanding MBCT

MBCT is based on the idea that mindfulness practices, such as meditation and body awareness, can help individuals cultivate a more present-focused and non-judgmental awareness of their thoughts, emotions, and sensations.

Our therapists integrate these practices with cognitive-behavioural techniques to help clients change unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours.

Cultivating Self-Awareness

In MBCT sessions, clients learn to observe their thoughts and emotions with curiosity and compassion, rather than judgement or criticism. Our therapists provide guidance and support as clients develop greater self-awareness, understanding, and acceptance of their inner experiences.

Developing Self-Compassion

MBCT therapy promotes self-compassion by helping clients cultivate a kind and gentle attitude towards themselves, especially in moments of difficulty or distress. Our therapists encourage clients to practice self-care and self-compassion techniques, fostering greater resilience and well-being in the face of life’s challenges.

Building Resilience

MBCT therapy also focuses on building resilience by helping clients develop practical skills for coping with stress, managing difficult emotions, and responding to challenging situations with greater clarity and ease.

Our therapists provide support and guidance as clients cultivate mindfulness practices, empowering them to navigate life’s ups and downs with greater resilience and well-being.
