When is Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) used?

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) is used to help people who have difficulty regulating their emotions, have low self-esteem, or are struggling with anxiety or depression. CFT is based on the idea that our emotions are regulated by three main systems in the brain: the behavioural, emotional, and cognitive systems. The goal of CFT is to help people regulate their emotions by teaching them how to work with all three systems. CFT has been shown to be effective in treating anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. It has also been shown to help people with chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). CFT is a relatively new therapy, but it is growing in popularity and is being used by more and more therapists around the world.
