Do you feel stuck in a never ending loop of negative thoughts and critical self talk?

Do you worry and procrastinate on issues and feel like you are going round in circles and never moving forward?

Do you turn to food when you are stressed or sad to manage your emotions as you only know to ignore and push these uncomfortable feelings away?

Then Compassionate Mind Training can help you!

Learn how the human brain has evolved and why this makes us vulnerable to self-criticism, negativity, threat, fear of rejection…and what you can do to thrive in spite of it.

For 2 hours a week over 8 weeks, you will work towards combatting feelings that hold you back. 

Compassionate Mind training helps you to understand more about how our brains have evolved, why this makes us more vulnerable to these threats and that this is not your fault.

You can learn how to respond to your brain in a more helpful way that is going to lead you towards the person you really want to be and the life you want to live!

This course will be a mix of education, guided meditation and imagery exercises to allow you to start to explore your barriers and beliefs about compassion, understand what compassion really means and how this may be a useful approach for you to practice in your life to develop the courage and wisdom to address life’s difficulties and flourish.

I get that people think compassion is soft and fluffy, but it is about much more than bubble baths and candles, it takes strength and commitment to build true compassion.

Compassionate Mind Training has been proven to help with many areas including:

  • Improving your body image and relationship with food
  • Reducing emotional eating
  • Reduce self critical thoughts
  • Overcome feelings of inferiority, particularly when comparing yourself with others
  • Understand and regulate difficult emotions in helpful ways
  • Develop healthier self improvement motivation
  • Build the strength to face your difficulties and cope with challenges
  • Show up for yourself and others

I have worked with lots of people to help them improve the health of their diet and their relationship with food and something that came up time and time again as a barrier to change was a lack of compassion.  As we developed compassion in these clients, their ability to make change, face challenges and maintain the resilience they needed to maintain this change over time.

This led me to train as a Compassionate Mind trainer so I can help more people to develop their  inherent ability for courage, strength and wisdom to be able to support themselves in the way they deserve.

I would encourage you to attend the sessions live where ever possible as Compassion is not developed through experiential learning and we will support each other as a group moving through the course, however, if for unforeseen circumstances you will have full access to the audios and materials.

Yes, the course is designed to give you the understanding and tools to develop your resilience through compassion and this can give you a great basis from which to start to support yourself to make change to your health and wellbeing, but if you need support for more specific issues relating to your nutrition, relationship with food or body image then I would be happy to help in my 1:1 clinic. 

The CMT course will have given you a great basis for us to work together from and so this can be a really effective way to start your journey towards food freedom.
