About this practice

What is Mindfulness Integrated CBT (MiCBT)?

MiCBT aims to help people find new ways to deal with psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, attention issues and pain management, anger management. It involves groups of about 10 people attending a two-hour session each week for 8 weeks. The program teaches skills in managing mind-wandering and emotions, awareness of thinking processes, body sensations and self-compassion.

Mindfulness meditation practices are central to the program.

Here is what people have said about the program:

"Apart from the occasional fleeting feeling of nervousness, which I think is expected during any exam, I was able to get through my exams without having my anxiety get in the way of all the hard work I have done over the year! ...and I would like to thank you again for teaching me how to do that. When comparing my mental state of mind and my body sensations now to when I had my last midyear exam, it's really like I'm a completely different person while coping under stress! I will definitely be keeping up with my body scan practices for a long time".

"I'd like to thank you again for this incredible program... The changes it has made in my life are immeasurable.....I never expected to experience a feeling of peace in my life... ever! Now that I have, it has really aided me to understand what is most important. From your program there are many, many things I am grateful to have experienced, and the affects have been lasting".
