Mindful Self Compassion Group

6 Week Group Program for Adults

Mindful Self Compassion Group Therapy Program

Clients with ADHD often struggle with practicing self-compassion. Self-compassion is being warm and kind to oneself when we encounter pain, failure, or perceived inadequacy. The Mindful Self-Compassion Group Program is focused on enhancing self-compassion and mindfulness, enhancing overall wellbeing, and helping to tackle the hurdles and challenges of everyday life that can accompany ADHD.

ADHD WA is offering a 6-week group therapy program for adults focused on achieving self-compassion through mindfulness.

Key focus areas for the Mindful Self Compassion Group Therapy Program:

  • Understanding the components of mindfulness and self-compassion
  • Understanding mindfulness in the body and brain
  • Enhance overall wellbeing through different practical exercises
  • Help tackle the hurdles and challenges of everyday life that can accompany ADHD
  • Stress management techniques including relaxation and meditation

This will be a highly practical group with between-session practice tasks, that we hope will be of great benefit to those who attend.

What is the Medicate rebate and how do I access it?

For participants who are eligible, ADHD WA Group Therapy Programs are offered under Medicare’s Better Access Initiative, namely Group Therapy. To obtain the rebate, participants who are eligible need to provide ADHD WA with specialist referral to the program from their psychiatrist, paediatrician, or a Mental Health Plan and referral from their GP stating the Group Therapy Item Number.

How much is the rebate?

How do I claim the rebate?
For those who have an eligible referral, a receipt per session attended will be emailed to them following attendance at a session. These receipts can be used to claim the Medicare rebate.

Please note that Medicare rebates cannot be claimed for sessions which the member does not attend and it is a Medicare requirement that a minimum of 4 participants attend in order for any participants to get the rebate. We cannot guarantee the rebate due to participant non-attendance should total numbers fall below the minimum requirement of 4.
