Mindfully-Informed Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Learn to cope with current difficulties and stay well for the long term.
Mindfully-Informed CBT builds a set of skills that enables participants to interrupt dysfunctional thoughts and behaviours. With mindfulness as a backdrop, this 10-week program will focus on teaching participants the tools of CBT. After learning CBT, participants can become their own therapists by using what they’ve learned to address problems as they arise.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is one of the most researched psychological approaches for a wide range of conditions, including depression and anxiety. This evidence-based group therapy explores the relationship between thoughts, emotions, behaviours and the body. While it is an awareness practice it is also a modality that develops skills and leads to changes in mood, anxiety, and behaviour.
