Our next Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Group is now open for bookings

The practice of mindfulness is shown to be a powerful tool in the improvement of various health and well-being indicators, both mental and physical. Due to the popularity and success of our last Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Group earlier in the year, Lilley Place is excited to announce we will be facilitating a new round of the group, to commence Sunday 8th October 2017. The cultivation of mindfulness-based techniques in a small-group environment will take place over 8 weekly sessions, delivered by one of Lilley Place’s experienced clinical psychologists.

An anonymous survey of our recent MBCT participants revealed a 94% satisfaction level, with the majority of respondents reporting greater awareness of body, thoughts and feelings. After the 8 sessions, participants recorded higher levels of psychological flexibility and acceptance – characteristics that are associated with lower levels of distress and problematic avoidance.
