Hello fellow Compassion Focused Therapists,
Please do come and join us for a 3 days retreat using CFT on ourselves. Come and contribute to working together to enhance our self-compassion and develop our compassionate minds and personal wellbeing.
CFT helps people who struggle with self criticism and feelings of shame. The practice is rooted in the scientific theory of social mentalities and looks at the function of behaviours in our social worlds. A core part of being a compassion focused therapist is self practice. Therapists can also struggle with self criticism, social comparison and feeling less than. So, developing self-awareness and compassionate self practice can not only help our own wellbeing but also keep our compassionate motivations at the heart of our work. It also enables us to experience the therapy from the inside out.
As therapists, we are committed to helping those in mental distress to find ways to alleviate suffering. This can be both rewarding and challenging as we engage with their stories of distress, pain and loss. It is important to look after ourselves and keep ourselves emotionally fit for the benefit to ourselves, loved ones and our clients.
We will use the practices of compassion focused theory (Gilbert, 2009, 2014) and the practice of developing Mindful Compassion (Gilbert & Choden, 2013), such as mindful attention, breathe work, chair work, guided imagery exercises and enhancing self awareness through formulation. There will be opportunities to listen and learn, reflect and practice as we will use group process and pairwork.
It will not be necessary to have CFT training as we will cover the core principles with teaching and practice. Some knowledge of CFT would be helpful but not essential to benefit from the retreat as we will visit the core teachings through the retreat as we focus on self-practice.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Dr Deborah Lee
