Do you find yourself struggling with self-criticism? Negative sense of self-worth? Anxiety? Living in your head too much? Self-blame, self-loathing?
Who doesn’t right now.
Do you need support managing anxiety, depression, or unhelpful behaviors?
Would you like to turn this around into:
- being more kind to yourself
- developing a better relationship to yourself
- creating less suffering and more ease
- cultivating a loving attitude towards yourself and others
Even though this might seem hokey or silly, learning to treat yourself like you would treat your best friend can be life changing. We are offering this group to help you with the skills and motivation you need to make these changes.
Compassion Focused Therapy Group
Taking the two months to dive deep into this with Asha Kadir, MHC-LP and a group of motivated peers will help you to experiencing what it is like to make this shift. We can think we are being kind to ourselves, but when we actually listen and speak out loud what it is in our head, it can be shocking.
Group will run from January 9th to February 27th, on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm. Group is $50 per session, for a total of $400 for the full series.It will be held online, so you can access group from your home or any other private space.

More about Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
We are often our own most prominent critics. In most cases, we are unaware we are being critical and harsh to ourselves. Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) by Professor Russell Kolts starts with the belief that relationships with yourself built on shame and self-criticism are the backbone of mental health problems. Thus, CFT aims to help you learn to relate to yourself in a friendly and supportive manner. It also enables you to adopt new ways to work through stressful situations while maintaining a loving attitude toward the self. We achieve this by learning to be mindful and purposefully cultivate compassionate strengths. A vital aspect of this group will be to help you develop a loving and kind relationship with yourself. (For more about CFT, here are some links to articles on psychology today, goodtherapy, and Wikipedia).
When you don’t have a loving relationship with yourself, stress and anxiety increases and mental health suffers. These stressors can affect your sense of worth, which can lead to relationship struggles.
Asha is also trained in DBT, which is another effective, evidence-based treatment and will be using DBT skills as a resource and a complement to the CFT ideas and exercises.
Group will run from January 9th to February 27th, on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm. Fee for the group is $50 per session, for a total of $400 for the full series. It will be held online, so you can access group from your home or any other private space.
