Developing Compassion and Kindness





Self-Compassion Skills

‘There is one person that is with you 24 hours a day, 7 days per week and 52 weeks in the year! That person is you.’ This is the first sentence I use when explaining the importance of self-compassion to clients. However instead of being supportive our inner voice is often harsh and critical. As one of my clients once told me, if I would speak to my friends the way I speak to myself, I would have no friends left! In this seminar you will learn strategies to become your best support person instead of your best critic.
In this workshop you will learn about the importance of self-compassion as a tool to deal with the challenges of life, you will learn practical exercises to incorporate self-compassion in your daily life.
