MBCT for Cancer
Building resilience… one breath at a time
Cancer care comes with worries, anxiety, and stressors. Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Cancer helps in coping with a diagnosis, treatment or recovery.
Mindfulness trains us to bring awareness to how we think, feel and act to provide us with choices about how to cope with difficulty. It helps improve quality of life and enhances immune system function.
Through a variety of practices you will learn to more skillfully manage your emotions and thoughts as they relate to the cancer experience.
