Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

The fundamental theory of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is this: if the client can change their belief and understanding of themselves or others, their behavior will change: and, conversely, if the client can modify their behavior in some way that is counter to their previous belief system, the cognition or understanding will change relative to that belief. Clients come to counselors to experience change. CBT is one of the avenues for each person to change something (thoughts or behavior) that will change everything else.

What Is Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

All Cognitive Behavioral Therapies are predicated on the idea that how we think influences how we feel and behave.

Traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a structured technique that helps us to recognize negative and irrational thoughts that promote painful emotional states and result in unwanted behavior or outcomes. By challenging and restructuring our thoughts, we can change our maladaptive patterns and thus change the way we feel and act.
