Who are we?
Balanced Minds is a UK organisation set up in 2011. We provide compassion-focused psychological services and resources. We have offices in London and Edinburgh, and offer therapy, coaching, supervision, training workshops, consultation and workplace wellbeing.
Our approach is grounded in compassion, and the principles and evidence based effectiveness of Compassionate Mind Training (CMT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) developed initially by Professor Paul Gilbert.
Life can be hard at times – work, relationships, financial concerns, and health worries. Sometimes these struggles ease on their own, or through strategies that we already have access to.
However, when it feels like we’re stuck in the mud of our difficulties, when we can’t find a path out of our struggles, we can help you to find your balance again. Whether this is through understanding yourself more, or learning new strategies to manage the difficulties you’re facing, Balanced Minds has a variety of services that can help you get on track again and consequently promote your general wellbeing.
Balanced Minds are passionate about providing different ways for people to access helpful, evidence based psychological interventions. We have a team of warm, caring and experienced therapists who provide individual, group, couples and family therapy. We also run a variety of innovative wellbeing courses and retreats, and have a variety of audio and self-help materials that may help you learn to manage your difficulties in new ways.
Alongside this, we also provide consultation and courses for workplaces, as well as training courses and supervision for other therapists; particularly around compassion-focused approaches. Please take a look at these pages to learn more.
