What is metacognitive therapy (MCT)?
And how can it help me?
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 practice, MCT is most commonly used for treating anxiety disorders and depression. In particular social anxiety disorder, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), health anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is also an effective treatment for depression. However, it is also used in other conditions, because it is a transdiagnostic treatment. This means it focuses on common psychological factors thought to maintain most psychological disorders.
