MBCT is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for the prevention of relapse in recurrent depression. It combines mindfulness techniques like meditation, breathing (mind and body awareness) with elements from cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to help break the negative thought patterns that are characteristic of recurrent depression.
MBCT and MBSR are broadly similar, with MBCT including element to address recurring and intrusive thoughts and negative self-talk which can be common for people suffering from depression.

MBSR was created in 1979 by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at The University of Massachusetts Medical Centre and has been shown to be very effective in helping manage the emotional, physical and cognitive effects of stress.
An MBSR programme typically runs over 8 weeks, although research has shown that just one session of Mindfulness starts to produce positive changes in the brain.
Individual 1 hour sessions offer the opportunity to work on your mindful practice in a private setting. Sessions are offered in addition to group work.
