Teaching Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an eight-week programme designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Experiments testing the efficacy of MBCT on depression demonstrated that relapse rates for the disorder decreased, and recent studies have shown the applicability of MBCT in treating a variety of issues besides depression – including anxiety, self-criticism, and ADHD – in clients from multiple age groups.
This 2-day course will equip you to run your own MBCT programmes.
IMPORTANT: in order to register for this course, you must have practised mindfulness regularly for at least six months, and have an understanding of its attitudes and benefits. If you are a beginner, look out for our new Gateway to Mindfulness course, due to be published soon. This will, in time, give you access to the MBCT course.
This course includes:
- Automatic Pilot
- Living in the Mind
- My Breath, My Body
- Being With Experience
- Thoughts Are Not Facts
- Taking Care of Ourselves
- Maintaining and Extending
- All materials needed to run your course
- Extra mindfulness recordings to expand your practice

This course is based on the book “Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression” by Segal, Teasdale and Williams.
You will not necessarily need the book in order to successfully complete the course, but it is definitely recommended that you acquire a copy if you intend to teach the programme, as it provides valuable additional information which will help you to plan and deliver your lessons.
