This four-session workshop is an introduction to Compassionate Mind Training. Compassionate Mind Training is an approach that can help people to manage self-criticism by developing a more compassionate and balanced outlook. Being self-critical is often a longstanding tendency that affects different aspects of life, including studying, interacting with others, and trying out new activities. When we frequently criticise ourselves, this can lead to other problems, such as anxiety, low confidence, shame, and low mood. Research has shown that developing more compassion for ourselves and others can have beneficial effects on our moods, wellbeing, and relationships. The first aim of the workshop is to help people to make sense of how our minds have developed over time, in order to explain how we can all get stuck in loops of self critical patterns of thinking. The second aim to reduce the impact of self-criticism on our lives by developing more compassion for ourselves, using experiential exercises.

Settling into a new University for some can feel a bit of a struggle and this could be for many reasons: such as moving to a new city, being away from family and friends, living in new accommodation, getting use to a different language and culture, to name but a few.
