WHAT IS COMPASSION FOCUSED THERAPY (CFT)?

When people have experienced difficult life events it can cause the brain to generate negative, self critical thoughts that impact upon our emotions, often resulting in destructive patterns of behaviour. CFT teaches us to focus on reactivating the compassionate part of the brain and learning new ways to react.  It does this using range of strategies including:

  • Compassionate attention – this involves choosing to go through your memories and focusing on times you were good to others or they were good to you

  • Compassionate behaviour – this is where you learn to spot and reduce things that you do to keep yourself ‘safe’ but that actually stop you from reaching your goals
  • Mindfulness – this is where you learn to focus on being fully present in the moment

At Select Psychology our compassion-focused therapy clinic can offer services and support in and around Newcastle. Call our team today for more information.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Compassion Focused Therapy can be helpful to people who find it difficult to manage distressing thoughts, behaviours or feelings. It can be particularly good for those dealing with feelings of low self worth who could benefit from being able to discover the reasons for this and to learn to have a more compassionate view of themselves, others and the world around them.

It can often be helpful to those who have undergone CBT and have not been able to resolve some of the more destructive thoughts, feelings and behaviours that they live with.
