Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy is a group programme that combines meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy in order to help manage problems such as depression and stress that are often present following a diagnosis of and teatment for cancer.

Classes include meditation and other similar practices and then involve some reflection about this experience. Sometimes we break into small groups to discuss the practice and sometimes we stay in the larger group (you only have to give feedback if you want to).

Cognitive behavioural therapy exercises are included in the classes.

This course is facilitated by Notts Healthcare Practitioners here at Maggie's.
