Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance

A health work-life balance is something that can sometimes seem unattainable. Research shows that reducing burnout in the helping professionals helps increase self-compassion and regain empathy towards others. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, or MBCT, is designed for people who suffer from work-related stress and burnout. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.  Clients learn to consciously pay attention to their feelings and thoughts without making judgments about them.

What does MBCT help treat?

  • Disturbed Sleep Patterns
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Negative Thoughts
  • Low Motivation
  • Sluggishness and Fatigue
  • Difficulty Concentrating

If you can relate to any of the above issues, mindfulness-based therapy may be right for you. MBCT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to recognize their sense of being. It also aims to give participants the necessary tools to combat depressive symptoms as they arise.

Evidence indicates that mindfulness-based therapy may reduce the rate of depressive relapse by 50%. If you or someone you know may benefit from mindfulness-based therapy, please contact me today for a free consultation. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.
