Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

The basic principle is to ‘live in the present’ and helps people suffering from mental tension. When the subject follows the concepts of mindfulness, it leads to realisation, understanding, compassion, empathy and love. Mindfulness therapy is suggested for subjects who are not able to realise their talents and face a lack of awareness of their surroundings, have low attention span, or attention diversion.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is often clubbed with Mindfulness-based Meditation Therapy. The subject having negative thoughts often develops hatred towards themselves or others. The psychologist understands why these negative thoughts are formulated, and meditation techniques are introduced to the subject to formulate positive thoughts. The negative thought patterns are changed to positive thoughts by the psychologist.
Note: We recommend you to schedule an appointment or call us before hospital/clinic visit or for online treatment. This will avoid unnecessary waiting when our psychologist is consulting with a prebooked client.
It’s the sole discretion of the consulting psychologist to decide if you need MBCT or any other therapy. What treatment needs to be carried out is decided at the end of the first consultation. During the first consultation, the psychologist will talk with you for at least an hour. The psychologist will analyse and try to understand the cause of the psychological or mental illness. The psychological diagnosis is explained to you at the end of the consultation. A remedy or treatment or therapy (which, of course, includes the coping mechanisms) shall be discussed with you. If any further sessions are required, the psychologist will explain it to you and what you can expect from it.
