Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT appears to be effective in the treatment of current Depression but also in the prevention of Depression to return. This form of meditation teaches clients to notice both pleasant and unpleasant experiences in the present moment without trying to change them. This is helpful to change the state of mind and prevent it from drifting off into thoughts about the future or the past, or trying to avoid unpleasant thoughts and feelings. At first the approach is used to focus on physical sensations (e.g. breathing), but later it is used to focus on feelings and thoughts.
