Mindfulness Therapy to Treat Depression

1-5What is Mindfulness Therapy?

Mindfulness based cognitive therapy, also known as MBCT, is a method of treating depression by combining the principles of mindfulness with cognitive behavioral therapy in order to keep you from suffering a relapse.

It helps people who suffer through chronic unhappiness and bouts of depression overcome it by merging the cognitive therapy method with meditational practices and the cultivation of mindfulness along with its principles.

What Does MBCT Mean?

Mindfulness, put together in simpler words, is living in the present moment. Experiencing emotions and thoughts without evaluating or getting consumed by them.

During a practice session, your mind way wander. You simply let it wander, see where it goes, observe this and return to your present moment through breathing exercises or yoga.

When Is MBCT Used And How Does It Work?

Results have shown that MBCT is most effective in people that are more vulnerable to relapse and have had earlier episodes.

Mindfulness encourages people to stand back and observe their thoughts and emotions rather than trying to control or correct them.

While you are depressed, you most commonly have self-depreciating thoughts or negative thoughts about certain situations at present or situations that might occur in the future. Mindfulness trains you to observe and acknowledge these feelings rather than training you to drive these emotions away from your train of thought.

Group MBCT Sessions

It has also been found that group MBCT sessions can help greatly in breaking down the walls of shame and guilt that depression builds within its victims.

It helps you see that these negative thoughts and emotions are not just yours, everybody has them. And these are just thoughts, not facts to be dwelled upon. This itself can help a great deal in overcoming depression.

Depression can be treated.

If anyone you know or care about is going through depression, urge them to seek help and get better.

Don’t fight depression alone.

Speak Your Mind.
