Resilience is the ability to respond to adversity, something we all need in these challenging times.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based educational program shown to prevent depressive relapse and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. MBCT combines the practice of mindfulness with practical tools from cognitive therapy.

In MBCT-R, you will learn skills for responding to the anxiety and emotional challenges arising from our current situation. Through the practice of mindfulness you will learn to engage the body, mind and heart to relate differently to challenging thoughts and emotional distress, and to help you to care for yourself and cultivate resilience.

This live online program allows participants to engage with the teacher and with each other. Please see below for testimonials.
