    Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness Therapy

    “Moment to moment non-judgmental awareness.”  Kabat-Zinn, 1997

    What is Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness Therapy?

    Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness Therapy is Mindfulness Therapy practiced through the lens of trauma. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT or Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, MBRP, are designed for people who suffer from repeated bouts of depression or chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. Mindfulness is about learning to pay attention with compassionate curiosity rather than self-judgment.

    Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills help to considerably reduce their chances of depression returning.

    • Depression and anxiety
    • Food and eating issues
    • Low mood and negative thoughts
