It reduces depression, anxiety and stress. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention to the present moment. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is designed to bring awareness to the habitual negative thinking that leads to depressive and anxious spirals. Combined, MBCT interrupts how we habitually react to situations, so we can choose to respond in more skillful ways. Research has demonstrated MBCT is as effective as antidepressants in the prevention of depressive relapse or recurrence.
