Are intense and uncomfortable emotions regularly getting in the way of you living your life?
All forms of anxiety and depression have emotional experiences in common. These experiences can arise from a tendency to experience emotions more often and more intensely.
Sometimes emotional experiences can feel overwhelming and this can lead to us wanting to avoid them or push them away, this is a natural and human response. However, by avoiding these intense emotions, it may impact negatively on other aspects of your life such as in work, social situations, hobbies and close relationships.
If intense emotional experiences are interfering with you living the life you want to lead, there is something you can do about it. Rotherham IAPT now offer a group intervention based on a treatment that has developed over several decades of research. By working on emotional experiences rather than specific disorders we can target several different presentations at the same time.
The aim of this treatment group is to help participants understand their emotional experiences, consider how they currently mange them and explore alternative strategies to better tolerate uncomfortable emotions.
This is an 8 session online interactive group. Which will be held weekly, facilitated by two experienced cognitive behavioural therapists. As part of the group, you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences but only if you want to.
Once you have completed an assessment session with a psychological wellbeing practitioner (PWP) and if the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) transdiagnostic group is agreed to be the most suitable treatment option, then the PWP can refer you to have access to the course.
