Do You Suffer From Anxiety? Tuesday Evenings

Where

SRC Offices, Bell Street, Glasgow

When

Tuesday 11, September 2018 - 18:00

FULLY BOOKED (places still available for Thursday group)

Are You Available From 11th September 2018 For 12 Weeks?

Free Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Group For Anxiety. Every Tuesday 6.00-7.30pm, beginning 11th September 2018

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.In CBT, problems are broken down into five main areas:

  • situations

  • thoughts

  • emotions

  • physical feelings

  • actions

CBT is based on the concept of these five areas being interconnected and affecting each other. For example, your thoughts about a certain situation can often affect how you feel both physically and emotionally, as well as how you act in response.

How CBT is different

CBT differs from many other psychotherapies because it's:

  • pragmatic – it helps identify specific problems and tries to solve them

  • highly structured – rather than talking freely about your life, you and your therapist discuss specific problems and set goals for you to achieve

  • focused on current problems – it's mainly concerned with how you think and act now rather than attempting to resolve past issues

  • collaborative – your therapist won't tell you what to do; they'll work with you to find solutions to your current difficulties

You Are Not Your Thoughts

Where

SRC Offices, 2/1, 30 Bell Street Glasgow

When

Sunday 30, September 2018 - 12:30

The Scottish Recovery Consortium, University of Life programme is hosting another seminar by Gerry Murphy.

This seminar looks at our thoughts, harmful thoughts which we believe to be normal and so fail to see anything wrong with them. We are conditioned to identify with the lies our own mind tells us.

We are not our thoughts. The cause of mental health problems, addictions, relapse, unhappiness and sadness, is our learned negative thinking, which also strips us of any self – worth and confidence we had. Is this normal?

  • Are you spiritually dead inside?

  • Are you struggling with change and life?

  • Are you still living with fear, regret, shame and guilt?

  • Have you read the books, watched the DVDs and still find change difficult?

  • Are you still looking for answers?

If you can identify with any of the above, then this seminar is for you. Getting to know, trust and understand ourselves brings peace and clarity of mind. Hopefully, after Gerry’s talk, you will leave with the awareness & understanding you craved for, which will enhance, empower, motivate and inspire you to live your whole life and not just half of it.

There are only 40 places at the Scottish Recovery Consortium's office, so unfortunately it will have to be first come first served.

The price is £3 for the seminar or whatever you can afford.

Tea, including herbal, coffee, biscuits, cake and fruit will be on offer, all for free.
