Compassionate Mindfulness Behaviour Training (CMBT); is for anyone wanting to let go of difficult emotions using evidenced based CMBT techniques to train and transform our negative thoughts and feelings.(e.g. depression, stress, anxiety, sadness, anger, loneliness)

Instead of fighting difficult emotions, critical and judgemental thinking of self and other with CMBT we will learn to accept and lessen reactivity and find new helpful and skilful ways to be with ourselves and others by cultivating kindly awareness.

CMBT includes the MBCT Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Training for depression, anxiety and worry. The CMBT training is the added component to integrate change, wisdom, joy, equanimity and compassion for transformation in our life.

Suitable for newcomers and for anyone who wishes to enhance their skills.
