About the event

Finding Calm is a 5-week course that will help you to:

  • Develop your own personal strategy tool-kit to combat overwhelm.
  • Gain greater insight into the effects of the bushfires on your patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.
  • Identify emotions, where they come from, why they are there and what to do if they are troubling for you.
  • Learn how to cultivate compassion for yourself – physically, mentally and emotionally.
  • Learn how to respond effectively to your inner critic and reduce self-judgment.
  • Learn how to be kind to yourself during times of overwhelm, when you need it the most.
  • Learn how to foster self-acceptance and be intune with your internal self.
  • Learn how to connect authentically with others.
  • Learn the skills to help you embrace difficult emotions and build resilience.
  • Learn practical skills in self-care and enhance your overall well being.
  • Learn what stored stress does to the body and how to reduce stress

The content of the group will draw on a range of different evidence-based therapeutic interventions, including Cognitive and Behavioural interventions (CBT), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
