Overcoming Negative Thoughts

  • One hour per week for 4 weeks
  • Daytime and evening courses available
  • Live, interactive and instructor-led
  • Online group of maximum 15 participants

Worry, rumination and negative thoughts are part of being human and we will all experience them from time to time. However, they can grow to become an issue that impacts our mental and physical wellbeing as well as our ability to function personally and professionally. When our thoughts become harmful to our wellbeing, they are called Cognitive Distortions.

This 4 week course, one hour per week, led by a fully qualified (MSc) cognitive behavioural science instructor / facilitator, provides participants with the advice, skills and exercises to manage their unhelpful thinking patterns, reduce anxiety, balance mood, build perspective and gain resilience.

Drawing upon the theoretical underpinnings of Cognitive Behavioural Theory and Psychology, the course utilises a blend of practices from CBT, resilience training, stress reduction, self-compassion, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence to give participants a distinctive set of tools to help them respond to anxiety skilfully and with confidence.

This course will help to:

– Develop awareness around negative thinking patterns and how to respond to them
– Explore our relationship to thoughts, cognitive distortions, low mood and anxiety
– Teach practical skills and exercises to help us meet and reduce anxiety and low mood
– Cultivate self-compassion and resilience
– Utilise gratitude and emotional intelligence as balancing forces at times of duress
– Furnish practitioners with skills to take out into daily life and flourish

Course Price: £150 per person

Mental Health Awareness Week

This year’s mental health awareness week will take place from Monday 18th May to Friday 22nd May.  The two suggested themes this year are Sleep, and Kindness.

We are fortunate here at Wellbeing Partners to have fully-qualified specialists in both these topics, and have exceptional, solutions-focused, one hour workshops, available via a range of virtual platforms such as Zoom, Webex, Skype, GoToWebinar etc for your employees to participate in:

Sleep: Our team of specialists includes highly experienced, registered sleep therapists* who present the fantastic one hour workshop “How to Improve Your Sleep” for up to 100 participants.

This session will provide your employees with the many evidence-based tools, tips and techniques for improving sleep naturally over the long term, along with a range of quick fixes that will get your team sleeping better immediately. All participants will also receive a free redeem code for our app which includes a range of specialist applied relaxation techniques for improving sleep. We also provide confidential one to one sessions with any employees who are having any type of sleep issue.

Kindness: Kindness and self-compassion are key components of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Our team of fully-qualified, registered and highly experienced MBCT facilitators* are specialists in helping employees to learn and experience the art of skilfully handling negative thinking patterns, cognitive distortions, low self-esteem, harmful self-talk, stress, anxiety and depression. Our one hour “Introduction to Kindness and Self-Compassion” workshop and our “30-minute mindfulness meditation sessions” are recommended for 25 participants but available for up to 100, and include a free redeem code for our app for all participants, which includes a range of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy practices.

* There are many providers out there who claim to be sleep specialists, mindfulness experts, or have solutions to anxiety and related issues, but who are not qualified, registered mental health professionals or fully qualified mindfulness facilitators. At Wellbeing Partners, our specialists and therapists are fully qualified mental health professionals (BSc BA, PDip, MSc), and are registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Our mindfulness teachers are qualified to Masters degree level (MSc) in evidence-based forms of mindfulness and registered with the Mindfulness Association. Please do not accept anything less than fully qualified practitioners to work with your employees on these very sensitive topics.
