A Compassionate Approach to Low Mood

Event details

One-off workshop

Depression can be associated with strong self-criticism and low self-compassion. Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) focuses on developing peoples abilities to feel inner safeness and self-reassurance as an antidote to self-criticalness

This workshop aims to introduce the model of CFT, offering an opportunity to learn about the theory that underlies it, and some specific compassion focused techniques, to make a positive difference to how we think and feel about ourselves.

The workshop will cover:

Some education and understanding of how our brains have developed and work - the impact this has on our thoughts and feelings, and other issues that may affect our way of being.

What compassion is all about - how we could fit it into our lives.

Some visualisation and writing techniques to help us become more compassionate towards ourselves on an everyday basis .

Understand low mood and what you can do to manage it, using a range of practical strategies and techniques.
