Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an eight-week workshop designed to help people who struggle with repeated mood and anxiety problems. MBCT offers a unique opportunity to restore well-being and prevent future episodes of anxiety and depression.

In 8 weeks of psycho-education, guided meditations, group dialogue, and home practice, you’ll learn:

  • What depression is and why you’re vulnerable
  • How to avoid the same old automatic reactions
  • New and helpful ways of responding to triggers
  • How to live in the present and reconnect with the joy and meaning in your life

All sessions will be held at the MindSpace Studio Westmount (1310 Greene Avenue, suite 500), including the mandatory orientation session on March 12th. The eight-week program starts in earnest on March 19th.

This course is also a pre-requisite for the Facilitation Certificate in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.

Cost : $650

*This class is offered in English.

** Please note: If you are currently going through depression, if you have suicidal ideations, if you currently have a problem with substance abuse or alcohol, if you have symptoms related to unresolved PTSD or a history of psychosis, this group is probably not recommended for you.
