Nightingale Hospital Mindfulness


Eight-week Mindfulness course

Nightingale Hospital’s Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) course is designed to help those who are experiencing depression and chronic unhappiness. The course involves meditative practices to help you pay close attention to the present moment, noting your thoughts, feelings and body sensations.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has endorsed MBCT as an effective treatment for relapse prevention of depression.

Lead by an experienced psychotherapist specialising in MBCT, through this course you will:

  • Gain self-awareness and self-confidence
  • Learn to better cope with stressful situations
  • Learn how to handle your thoughts, moods and emotions more effectively
  • Improve cognitive effectiveness and capacity for decision making
  • Enhance focus and attention

Participants can access this course without a GP referral. Some medical insurers have been known to cover this course but we suggest contacting your provider directly to discuss further.

“The MCBT course lead by Gwen Williams at the Nightingale Hospital was a real opportunity for growth and fulfilment while addressing my anxiety disorder that has plagued me for years. I came across this course during my rehabilitation from a huge burn out episode at work that had me on sick leave for over a year. My goal was to gain expertise in skills to address the factors in my personality that would lead to relapse.

Although I had dabbled in mindfulness via popular apps I lacked the structure and motivation provided by the course and its members. Challenging at times but really life affirming and resilience building. I feel that my ongoing practice will provide me with the ability to meet life’s ups and downs with peace, serenity and equanimity; getting out of my self-inflicted mind traps and enjoying a life more fully lived.”
