This is a six-session programme using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) concepts – the most evidenced-based talking therapy for people affected by low mood, anxiety or depression. The programme has been developed by Dr Chris Williams, professor of Psychiatry at University of Glasgow and a recognised expert in developing self-help resources based on CBT. It introduces participants to the ‘Five Areas Approach’ which illustrates that events and situations in our lives affect how we think, how we feel, how we behave and also affect us physically. Thinking and behaviour are the two areas that we have most control over, if we tend to think and/or behave in extreme and unhelpful ways, it can adversely affect the other areas and lead to us getting caught in a ‘vicious circle’. The programme therefore focuses on how we can challenge and change our thinking and behaviour in order to turn the circle into a ‘virtuous circle’.
We are delighted to offer some online content using the tools of Living Life to the Full, as an alternative to face-to-face delivery during COVID-19.
We are planning to launch another online course very soon - watch this space!
LLTTF is delivered to groups in community settings
and there are also a number of ‘open’ courses which individuals can enrol on.
Topics covered in the LLTTF course include:
“The course has made me more resilient and enabled me to cope with feeling low and depressed.”
“It is a very worthwhile course! You learn about your moods and coping strategies. I would recommend highly as a help to others.”
If you have ticked ‘YES’ to the questions above, then this could be the right course for you. If you have any doubts about your suitability for the programme, please contact us
