CFT in York

Compassion – both for ourselves and others – is a fundamental human need. It plays a vital role in our mental health, self-confidence, and overall well-being.

Here at York Therapy Clinic, we offer Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) – a therapeutic approach that can help you to develop self-compassion, manage difficult emotions and build a more fulfilling life.

Our network of psychologists and therapists in York use CFT to help you to reduce self-criticism, improve self-esteem and confidence, and develop healthy coping mechanisms for stress.

How Does CFT in York Work?

CFT is based on the idea that difficult experiences, both past and present, can trigger a ‘threat response’ in our brains. This leads to a cycle of negative thoughts and behaviours, such as self-criticism, avoidance, and social isolation.

CFT helps you identify this pattern and develop skills to soothe your inner critic and cultivate a more compassionate inner voice. This allows you to approach challenges with greater self-acceptance and emotional resilience.

While Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) draws inspiration from Buddhist principles of self-compassion, recent scientific research shows that CFT techniques are effective in treating a variety of mental health issues.
