Private Mindfulness Therapy
Mindfulness or mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) combines mindfulness techniques originating from the far-East such as meditation, breathing exercises and stretching with elements from cognitive behaviour therapy to help break the negative thought patterns that are characteristic of recurrent depression.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends MBCT for the prevention of relapse in recurrent depression. Evidence shows that Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy can, on average, reduce the risk of relapse for people who experience recurrent depression by 43%.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy teaches people to focus on the present moment, rather than worrying about the past or the future, to develop an acceptance of reality, and to let go of the negative thoughts that can trigger depression. It also gives people a greater awareness of their own body and breath, helping them to identify signs of depression before it comes.
