Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems and changing unhelpful patterns in cognitions (e.g. thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes), behaviours, and emotional regulation.

Course Duration

This six-week course is for anybody and everybody who feels they would like to gain perspective, improve coping skills, and achieve general personal development.


Compassion Focussed Therapy

Compassion is a deep sensitivity to the suffering of the self and others, with a deep wish and commitment to relieve that suffering. The courage to be compassionate lies in the willingness to see into the nature and causes of suffering, in ourselves, in others and in the human condition

This course is aimed at anyone who has an interest in CBT and may also be of particular use to those currently working in the addiction, counselling, mental health or community/voluntary sector.

Course Duration

The aim of this 4 week course is to provide an overview of CFT and the space to practice the skills associated with this approach.


Recovery from Trauma

Practical steps as to how we can get through trauma. People think of trauma as something that happened in the past but in fact it’s the way we respond to things in the present. It’s how we react to the body’s ‘alarm system’, how we respond to memories, and how we deal with that anxiety within ourselves.

The course will examine how trauma affects the human body and what people can do to deal with this and live more mindfully in the present.

Course Duration

 This 8 week course will explore how to better cope with trauma.
