Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT)

CFT is an integrative therapy that was developed for people who experience shame and high levels of self-criticism to learn how to be more compassionate towards themselves and others. The practice of compassion has been shown to be effective in regulating emotions, developing self-acceptance and promoting feelings of comfort or safety, even in the face of difficult experiences such as criticism or rejection.

  • Compassion- a recognition or concern for the suffering of others or oneself that prompts some action to alleviate the suffering
