ABOUT

Thinking Cards

Our “Thinking Cards” were developed to help young people improve their mental well being utilising techniques from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.
We wanted to develop a learning tool to support young people in identifying their positive and negative thought patterns. The overall aim was to see a reduction in anxiety and an improvement in resilience.
We looked at the ideas used in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Mindfulness and sought to distill the key ideas into 25 or so easily remembered phrases that could be presented on cards for them to learn and work with.  The aim being that young people can improve their inner life and well being by suffering less from unhelpful thinking and benefit more from helpful thinking.
The visuals appeal to young people and are combined with simple yet powerful messages to enable them to identify and challenge negative thinking.
We have endeavored to make the use of the cards a special experience for the young people and do take orders for pre-printed cards. The cards have a high quality finish and presentation and are supplied in a velvet lined presentation box. If you would like to order some cards please email us at:
