CBRT™ (Colour Breathing Relaxation Technique) is a pioneer in relaxation, positive thinking and behavioural health.

The course is as experiential as possible, so learning can be quick. It aims to equip delegates with sufficient understanding and confidence that they will be able to work using their new learnings swiftly upon completion of a 40 question Assessment Paper (based on the course content) and 5 case studies.

Individuals trained since 2005 include Community Mental Health Support workers, Counsellors, Psychologists, Midwives, Palliative Care, Occupational Therapists, GP's, Nurses, Addiction and Trauma/PTSD Specialists, Carers, School Teachers and Lecturers, Prison Officers, Stress Management Consultants, Complementary Health Practitioners, Social care and voluntary sector staff.

CBRT is COVID 19 friendly and can be delivered safely with social distancing in place.

The Colour Breathing Disks system has also been used as a popular calming classroom and emotional resilience activity - first used in the education sector as part of the Discovery Programme (2003 - 2006.)

CBRT is also a useful new skillset for individuals already trained in Mental Health First Aid, as once a certified CBRT Practitioner - they are able to deliver regulated CBRT Relaxation Support Sessions for both individuals and groups of people in the workplace.

The online CBRT Practitioner Training Programme is a recognised Professional Training Programme (with CPD accreditation) by The CPD Standards Office.

CBRT provides users with the skills and tools to deliver a new, positive and uplifting experience which is supported by a high quality product range which they can purchase and use at home. A holistic intervention and guided self-help approach for individuals with mild to moderate depression, general anxiety disorder, hypertension, long term conditions and medically unexplained symptoms.

Since 2004 CBRT has researched, developed and improved the Training Programme over many cycles, working with a wide range of Professionals in Northern Ireland. We value their contributions and thank them for helping CBRT to become the pioneering evidence based intervention and training programme it is today.

An ideal relaxation support intervention for people of all backgrounds to learn and deliver.

    Sue, a CBRT Practitioner who worked in the healthcare sector described CBRT as “Proving to be one of the simplest but most effective tools to aid mental relaxation and achieves excellent therapeutic outcomes. The beauty of it lies in its simplicity - it is easy to understand and is something that can be taken away and used every day by everyone …. it has improved the mental well-being in my clients in a faster time frame than the usual talking therapies”.

    David, a CBRT Practitioner working in the education sector said “CBRT is an excellent way of focusing the mind, helping the person to describe, understand and regulate their emotional state and talk through the concerns, worries or anxieties that might be preventing them reaching goals they set for themselves. Children and adults love the colours. CBRT is a wonderful way of working with others to improve the way we interact and how we can ‘listen’ to our feelings to find the way forward.”

Colour Breathing Relaxation Technique helps me talk about my state of mental wellbeing in a new and positive way.

It is okay to say "I am going to go to my CBRT Relaxation Support Session now."
