Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

MBCT programmes were developed later by Drs John Teasdale, Zindel Segal, and Mark Williams, to combine the best of MBSR mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive behaviour therapy principles and practice. Like MBSR, they are evidence-based programmes and research has demonstrated that they are especially helpful for people who have had recurrent episodes of depression. MBCT is designed to target the ruminative thinking styles which often fuel low mood; it does so very effectively.
