Cultivating Compassion Coffee Morning

This is an online group space to explore supporting our mental wellbeing whilst in confinement. I will be using a framework of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) to guide my facilitation. This approach combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to improve emotional wellbeing. You can read more about Compassion Focused Therapy here.

The idea is that we meet for a tea/coffee, be part of a community, a space to share and listen, swap tips, seek and offer advice. Each session will be different and will grow and evolve with its attendees. Pyjamas are welcome. 

We’ll begin with a short compassionate breathing space meditation, and move into a supported discussion space. We will close with a short mindful compassion practice. 

Topics I’ve envisaged which will no doubt expand:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety 
  • Sleep
  • Frustration
  • Fear
  • Loneliness
  • Boredom

As well as a group discussion space to share and problem-solve, where needed/requested, I can offer professional advice and sign post to further resources and support.

By signing up to the group you will be agreeing to the following group guidelines:

  1. Be kind and courteous. We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness and respect are required.
  2. Respect everyone’s privacy. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and aware of confidentiality. Be mindful that people may be identifiable by things other than their name. What’s said in the group stays in the group.

I look forward to seeing some of you here.

May you be well, may you be at ease.

Josephine
