Mindfulness & Self-Compassion
Mindfulness is a fantastic tool which can help us get in touch with what is really going on inside us. While many people find it relaxing, its primary use in therapy is for looking deeply, letting go of anxiety, and developing the skills to maintain emotional balance and insight in daily life.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is closely related to Mindfulness in that the goal is to become aware of thinking patterns and gradually change them. Mindfulness is slightly different, in that it focuses more on how we relate to our thoughts than CBT does.
There are several ways in which it can be used in a session. Please give me a ring to talk through options.
I also run courses through Norfolk and Waveney Mind.

Late spring, moving into summer, is the time for growth and development. This weekend will offer an opportunity to connect internally, supported and enriched by our relationship with the natural world. By moving back and forth between internal and external experience we will find a measure of equilibrium and insight. Playing with creativity can also bring new awareness. There is space to share your experience with your fellow participants to whatever level feels useful .
Please consider bringing:
- Clothes to suit being outside in the weather of the day. Sun block, hat etc. Rain gear, etc. Warmer clothes than usual maybe.
- The space has very few chairs so a chair to sit on indoors and maybe something to sit on outside too might be useful
- If you use meditation equipment feel free to bring it, or you can just sit in your chair or on a cushion
