About Compassion Focused Therapy

Compassion Focused Therapy was developed as a means of addressing psychological difficulties underpinned by shame and self-criticism. The model draws on social, neurophysiological and evolutionary theory to seek to understand emotional regulation and our basic social motivational systems. It postulates the benefit of mindfully tuning into and developing compassion, activating our 'affiliative/soothing system' and balancing our affect regulating systems, particularly in response to threat.

In recent years there has been a growing evidence base for the approach. It has been adapted and tailored for those experiencing trauma, eating related difficulties, psychosis, physical health conditions and work-related stress. It is also used in schools, with children, young people and families and a range of residential settings.
