In this podcast we’ll explore the evolution of the brain and how the old brain can pull us into feeling threatened by our emotions and the new human brain responds with worry, rumination and self-blame. We’ll be introducing elements of Compassion Focused Therapy which was developed by Professor Paul Gilbert which helps us overcome feelings of shame and cultivates encouragement and self-acceptance.
