I've recently finished an intense course of group CBT which was depression and anxiety focused. I feel like it has helped me a lot and I use a lot of the things I learned on a daily basis to keep the depression and anxiety at bay. With the medication and therapy, I feel really well at the moment. I got a letter through the post this morning saying that upon completion of my course of CBT, I have been offered a place on the compassionate mind therapy group. I'm not too clued up on it, but I think it's about learning about how to be compassionate to oneself in order to deal with life on a day to day basis. I am quite surprised I have been offered a place on this group as I really wasn't expecting it and I'm really unsure on what to do about it. I feel well at the moment and I feel like I am being kind to myself (most of the time) so I am not sure that I need it, but on the other hand I fought so long and hard to get therapy in the first place that I feel like I would be biting the hand that feeds me and I'd look bad for not accepting a place on the group. Then there is arranging the time off work again, and this course is a lot longer than the previous course of therapy I had. So I am really unsure what to do and could do with a little bit of advice.
