Service Description

This 8-session in-person Compassionate Mind Training programme is adapted from the groundbreaking work of internationally renowned psychologist and creator of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Professor Paul Gilbert. During the course, participants will learn: • how our minds are naturally susceptible to getting caught up in to negative thinking-emotion ‘loops’ • about the ‘three emotion systems’ model, and how many of us can get stuck in emotional imbalance • what compassion is, what attributes help to facilitate it, what can block it, and how we can train our minds in it • that compassion can come in three different ‘flows’ – to others (compassion for others), from others (compassion from others) and to ourselves (self-compassion) • practical skills to balance emotions through mindful compassion Participants will be asked to do in-between session skills training practice, guided by audio files and written material that will be provided. Each session is 2 hours long, including a five minute break for refreshments.
