This type of therapy is often referred to as MCBT or mindfulness based cognitive therapy. Using these tools, the depression therapist can then teach the client how to break away from the negative thought patterns that they are experiencing.

    What is counselling?
    by UK Therapy Guide
    It is usually a major life event that prompts a person to think about counselling. We’ve all heard about it. The word gets passed about freely in the media, on television shows and in the media. We hear about it in schools and even at our local doctor’s surgery. It is easy to form an idea about what counselling is. But do we really know?
