Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a therapy that helps a person to understand the links between the thoughts they have, the way that they feel and the things that they do. CBT is not used to delve into your past, instead it is about looking at your current difficulties and highlights negative patterns (as patterns shown below) and offers immediate strategies that can reduce symptoms of low mood, anxiety, panic disorder, depression and stress.
Being Mindful means paying more attention to the present moment – your thoughts, feelings and experiences as they happen. Practising Mindfulness can prevent you from being distracted by thoughts about the past, and worries about the future. We often get caught up in ‘what if‘ patterns of thought, which brings worries about things that might not even happen. This type of thinking can cause us to feel anxious and worries. We can also get caught up in ‘if only’ patterns of thought which can make us feel sad and upset about things that have happened in the past. Spending so much time in our head thinking about the past and/or future can stop us from enjoying what is happening in the present. In this way we are in a permanent habit of not living our life in the present and denying ourselves happiness.
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of human strengths, happiness and how we can flourish as people. Positive Psychology helps us to notice those positives that are in our lives and can help us to understand what makes life worth living. Psychology has often focused on the negatives, ie when things go wrong, and a person becomes unwell. Positive Psychology looks at how we can become happier and more fulfilled.
KALMind brings together all 3 of the above into a 6 week program. The KALMind course is a very supportive group that is about experiencing positive strategies within the group, and then reflecting throughout the week on what you have learnt and how it may apply to you as an individual.
The cost of this 6 week course is £70. You will receive a workbook with a script of all meditations learnt on the KALMind course as well as worksheets to reflect on your journey to becoming a more relaxed, calmer, happier person.
