Mindfulness Based Therapies

Add to CPD Subscribe to page updates Start a discussion

Mindfulness-based therapy courses are designed to help patients:

  • stay well and prevent relapse into depression
  • cope with long term, treatment resistant anxiety
  • cope with low mood, anxiety and chronic pain in the context of long term health problems (cardiovascular, MSK, immune system disorders, etc.)

Practicing mindfulness can help patients live more fully in the present, rather than being caught in rumination and worry over the past or future. It can help individuals become more aware of patterns of low mood and stress and better able to respond to them skillfully, helping to enhance well-being.
