What is Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)?

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that combines mindfulness practices with cognitive therapy techniques. Initially developed to prevent relapse in individuals with recurrent depression, MBCT has since been adapted to address a range of mental health concerns, including anxiety and stress. Our psychiatric doctors and mental health counselors have extensive training in MBCT, ensuring you receive the highest level of care throughout your therapy journey.
