Mindfulness based therapies
by UK Therapy Guide
Mindfulness based therapies started off as therapies that were implemented to prevent relapse in people suffering with depression. Breathing, meditation and mindfulness exercises are used in the therapy environment to help the client manage negative thoughts. 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.
