Metacognitive therapy (MCT) is a psychotherapy focused on helping people with their distress, such as anxiety problems, depression and life difficulties. MCT focuses on changing thinking patterns that keep anxiety and depression going such as worry, rumination and attention becoming fixed on danger and failures.

In MCT the goal is to discover what you believe about thinking and how your mind works (called metacognitive beliefs), then to help you discover new and alternative ways of regulating your thought processes to reduce symptoms and distress.

In clinical practise, MCT is an effective treatment for depression and anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress, health anxiety, and anxiety and low mood in the context of stress. It can also be used to treat other psychological conditions. This means it focuses on common psychological factors thought to maintain most psychological disorders.
