At Glasgow Mindfulness Centre the MBCT course is delivered jointly by a CBT therapist, who has mindfulness training, and a Buddhist monk who has traditional and modern mindfulness training in healthcare and education from the University of Bangor. This is the only MBCT Course in the UK jointly facilitated by a CBT therapist and a Buddhist monk.
The 8 week MBCT course integrates Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This was developed to help people suffering from depression and again has a strong scientific evidence base and is recognised by NICE in the treatment of depression.
MBCT is about increasing awareness of physical sensations, thoughts and feelings as mental events. There are similarities to the content of the MBSR course however; the aim for those attending has a focus on:
MBCT has more focus on particular areas where a person maybe vulnerable or suffer a specific condition e.g. depression. MBCT is more looking at the psychological and cognitive aspects of experiences participants may have.
The course is taught over eight 2 hour sessions at weekly intervals including an additional all day session.
The course is taught in a group ranging from 4-8 people.
As well as being taught Mindfulness practices you have the opportunity to discuss these and your experience of practice with the group.
In addition to attending the course participants should be aware that home practice is also an important part of the course, and time should be set aside each day to practice Mindfulness. This can be integrated into daily routines quite simply.
All our teachers adhere to the Good Practice Guidance for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses published by the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers.
