Program overview

This eight – session group is designed for people who have previously experienced depression or lived with strong anxiety and are interested in developing skills to prevent or better manage any future experiences.

In the MBCT program, participants meet together as a class for weekly two hour sessions. The main ‘work’ of the program is done at home between sessions, using audio-guided meditations that support participants developing their practice.

It is essential that participants make a commitment to practice the 30-minute guided meditation exercises daily, you need to consider this before registering your interest. A brief discussion with one of the facilitators is a prerequisite for beginning the program to determine whether it fits your particular goals and/or circumstances.

Note this program includes a retreat day for deepening the practice of mindfulness. The retreat day takes place between session 6 and 8. The day of mindfulness will be on Sunday.
