Mindfulness for Depression (8 Weeks) | Therapy Group in Washington — Zencare

Mindfulness for Depression (8 Weeks)


Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression is an integration of meditations, mindful movement, and cognitive interventions stuctured throughout an 8-week course. In structured group sessions, group members will learn to step out of their habitual, automatic patterns of thought and behavior that tend to come up as they become depressed, and is a tool in prevention from depression spiral.

This group is for adults 18+ who have a history of experiencing depression. No formal diagnosis is needed to enroll. This is a closed group, meaning that the same participants go through the 8 week sessions together. Please contact me for a consulation call to see if you would be a good fit for my next group.
