Mindful Self-Compassion course
Why is it so hard to give ourselves the same compassion we so easily give to our friends?
Most of us would be kind to a close friend who was suffering, yet we can be merciless with ourselves.
Does this sound familiar?
you beat yourself up when you fail or make a mistake
you’re much harder on yourself than you’d EVER be on a friend
you try and motivate yourself with criticism
you’re your own worst enemy
you don’t know how to cope with difficult emotions like sadness, shame or fear
Mindful Self-Compassion is an evidence-based group course that will help you start developing a kinder relationship with yourself, even in difficult and painful moments of life.
The course was developed by researcher Dr Kristin Neff, and psychologist Dr Chris Germer. You’ll learn about the three core components of self-compassion:
Mindfulness: noticing that you’re suffering
Self-kindness: responding to your own suffering with care
Common humanity: recognising that everyone struggles sometimes
Anyone can learn the skill of mindful self-compassion, whether or not you received enough kindness growing up, and even if you feel a little uncomfortable at the thought of being kind to yourself now.
