Compassion Focussed Therapy in Newcastle and Gateshead

Compassion focussed Therapy

Compassion focused therapy


Compassion Focused Therapy aims to help those who struggle with self-criticism and shame and encourages people in treatment to be compassionate towards themselves and others. It is not uncommon for people who experience difficulties with self-worth to report that other forms of therapy have not worked. CFT acknowledges that the relationship we have with ourselves and the way we perceive that people feel about us have a profound impact on our wellbeing – both positively and negatively. CFT helps us let go of the self-blame that we often attach to negative thoughts and aims to build self-confidence and develop self-compassion.
