Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MiCBT) integrates techniques based on mindfulness training with the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It is a valuable therapeutic approach to a wide range of emotional, psychological and stress conditions. MiCBT differs from direct CBT in helping people learn control over the cognitive processes that keep the unwanted thoughts going rather than changing those thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
The techniques of MiCBT are of great benefit in helping people make beneficial changes to their relationships. It helps us not over react to or misinterpret other peoples words or behaviour. We become more understanding, tolerant and accepting in our interpersonal relationships. There is also the added benefit of us becoming more caring, compassionate and empathetic which in turn increases our confidence and self-esteem. As one of our retreats is called, there is more ‘relationship harmony’ in our lives.
"3 days with David has totally changed our perspective and offered solutions to issues previously thought insurmountable. Recommend wholeheartedly."
Matthew & Catty, January 2016
"Our only regret is not coming to David sooner. What a difference just a few days can make. Thank you for giving me back my husband". "We would unreservedly recommend 'Therapy Retreats' to anyone experiencing relationship issues. Keep up the good work. Found it far better than 'Relate' counselling."
Jackie & Claude, Hampshire. December 2015
"Rewiring your brain never seemed so simple....but so necessary. Recommend without hesitation!"
"The time I have spent with David has been a truly enlightening experience. Recommend 100%"
"I have accomplished more in five days on this retreat than I have in the last two years by other therapy methods. Soon felt at ease with David. I will continue using the tools he has taught me for the rest of my life."
