Mindful-Self-Compassion 

Have you ever noticed that the way we treat ourselves is often quite different to how we would treat a close friend or loved one? We usually respond to other peoples difficulties with compassion, encouragement and kindness, yet often our own inner voice can be harsh and self-critical. Mindful Self Compassion is the antidote to this harsh, and often counter productive, self-critical approach. In this 8 week evidence based program you will learn 3 core aspects of self compassion.

What you will learn:

  • Mindfulness: being open to the reality of present moment so we can drop our internal struggle with how things are, and learn to respond with greater ease

  • Common humanity: recognising we are not alone in our struggles, and developing a sense of authentic connection

  •  Kindness: learning to respond to our OWN suffering with the same compassion we would do to a close friend. Motivating ourselves with encouragement instead of self-criticism and living in accordance with our deepest values.
