Book Review

The Compassionate Mind Approach to Recovering From Trauma using Compassion Focused Therapy


Deborah Lee with Sophie James

Buy Online

The book begins by helping you to understand your response to trauma and the memories associated with it. It then looks at myths and personal blocks to compassion. This is a common difficulty that people have and it’s a useful tool to analyse why these are myths and what blocks you have, as these can prevent recovery. The book gradually moves on to using mindful and compassion focused techniques to reduce the sense of threat you feel. I particularly like the chapters on compassionate letter writing which helps to acknowledge the pain and suffering you have gone through and help you develop ways to move forward. Compassion has mindfulness at it’s core so the exercises help you to stay in the present and let go of the past that haunts you.
