Our 8-week Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MCBT) program is being held at Better Life Centre in March. This group not only provides a tool kit for managing thoughts and feelings, but teaches an accurate and effective understanding of the processes involved.
Anticipated Benefits of Participating In A Group
Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Psychologists say, in fact, that group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be.
Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way.
Regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Many people experience difficulties, but few speak openly about them to people they don’t know well. Oftentimes, you may feel like you are the only one struggling — but you’re not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they’re going through, and realise you’re not alone.
NOTE: This program is not suitable for participants that are actively suicidal and have no other supports, are abusing substances including alcohol and drugs. Please contact us if you experiencing these symptoms

What is Mindfulness?
Jon Kabat-Zinn’s success in mindfulness is developing the ability to pay attention in a particular way.
- On purpose, in the present moment; and non-judgmentally
- Non-judgement and self-compassion
These teachings are key to the changes in values and beliefs that underpin depression and that thoughts are neither ‘you’ or ‘reality’.
