MBCT Therapy in Reno, NV

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is exactly as it sounds: the combining of the effective practices of mindfulness and meditation with cognitive therapy. Together, they teach our patients to more consciously pay attention to thoughts and feelings. By noticing our thoughts without shame or judgment, we can monitor our thought patterns and build our body awareness.

Mind and Body Counseling Associates in Reno has therapists who specialize in mindfulness CBT to help heal a host of conditions. While MBCT was originally believed to help treat those with ongoing or multiple episodes of depression, we now know mindfulness-based CBT is also effective for anxiety, hypertension, gastrointestinal disorders, and other health concerns.

MBCT therapy is based on the premise that our thoughts precede moods. Our therapists work with you to recognize thought patterns and feelings to teach you ways to replace those negative patterns before your brain returns to previous brain patterns that triggered your depression in the past. This psychotherapy practice helps you learn ways to let go of negative thoughts before they begin to negatively affect your mental health.

Not only has research shown that MBCT reduced the risk of depression relapse by almost 50%, but mindfulness-based cognitive therapy has also been shown to reduce cravings for addictive substances.

Bringing Mindfulness to Your Daily Activities

It sounds simple, but changing our thought patterns can be challenging, which is why Mind and Body works with you on ways to bring mindfulness to your daily activities. You will learn ways to practice body and thought awareness while you participate in your regular routine, such as chores, bathing, and exercising. These are great opportunities to learn MCBT skills, such as:

  • Not second-guessing yourself
  • Stop ‘future tripping’ over what may or may not happen
  • Learning how to feel less self-conscious
  • Paying attention to your surroundings
  • Making decisions without self-judgment

Mindful cognitive learning dates back thousands of years to East Asian medicine and philosophy. Today, psychotherapy research continues to identify mindfulness and meditative practices as powerful tools for our mental health.
