Overview

The PGDip Psychological Therapies Practice (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches) programme has been developed to further equip you with the knowledge and skills in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-based Approaches (MBA).This programme particularly focuses on the skills required to be ready and competent to teach MBCT/MBA classes for clients. You will also be supported in a safe environment teaching to peers before moving to placements to begin to teach in real world settings under the supervision and guidance of an experienced MBCT/MBA teacher.

Although there is not yet a nationally recognised MBCT/MBA professional qualification we are working closely with Universities of Bangor and Oxford to ensure appropriate standards.

The PGDip Psychological Therapies Practice (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches) aims to develop your readiness to offer MBCT/MBA to people in a setting specific to your professional orientation. You will develop competence in established evidence-based applications of MBCT/MBA assessed by using the Mindfulness-based Interventions - Teaching Assessment Criteria.

The University of Exeter MBCT training has been the best course, learning and training experience I have had in my whole career. Thanks to you and the team.
