What is Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy?
Mindfulness-based psychotherapies (MBSR: Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction; MBCT: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) are psychotherapeutic approaches that combine processes of Cognitive Therapy with mindfulness to improve mood and long-term health.
Originally designed to treat depression and unhappiness, Mindfulness-based psychotherapies have since been used extensively and effectively for much more such to treat anxiety, chronic pain, hypertension and heart disease and even cancer. Mindfulness itself is a practice of non-judgment, present moment awareness that allows an individual to attend to what is in front of her/him and staying with the thoughts, feelings and actions of that moment.
