The objective of this group experience was to introduce the practice and use of Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness into the participants daily life. Here are some of the Outcome that was achieved by our group members;
‘’ I have started to realise to take one day at a time, to try to stay in the moment, not over think. I am working through things better’’. Anna, 36
‘’I am learning to breathe and take my time…I’m not the only one who feels this way. I’m not alone. I’m not being so hard on myself and I’m going to be OK’’. Mary, 42
‘’When dealing with situations that makes me uncomfortable, I can step back and ask myself why and try to work out how to handle things better’’. Joan, 33
‘’I am able to bring myself back to a more peaceful place’’. Jennifer, 29
‘’I can see changes in my reaction to situations/challenges. My thinking is much clearer and I’m less likely to jump straight in with my reaction to things. I feel more challenged in the way I think and behave. I have a better understanding of the family situation I face (addiction) and am more equipped to understand and deal with it’’. Sheila 55, Mother of four.
‘’It has helped me to get a greater understanding of how I think and behave in situations. Loved every minute of it’’. Leanne,37
