Embracing the Present, A Journey into Mindfulness

Updated: Jun 4, 2023

What is Mindfulness Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy?

It is a holistic approach to therapy that addresses both the physical and emotional facets of your wellbeing and is made possible by the combination of mindfulness and cognitive-behavioural therapy. Being mindful involves practising nonjudgmental awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. Whereas, cognitive behavioural therapy is a type of talk therapy that helps people in understanding and changing damaging thought and behaviour patterns. MB-CBT will assist you in responding to circumstances calmly and efficiently rather than becoming enmeshed in negative thought patterns and acting without thinking.
