  • Self-Compassion Workshop

This introductory workshop will help you learn the skills of self compassion so you can respond to difficult times in your life with kindness and care.

Self-compassion is the heart of mindfulness and self-compassion skills help us be kind and caring toward ourselves rather than being critical and judgemental. It allows us feel connected to others when we suffer, rather than feeling isolated and alone. Unlike self-esteem, the good feelings of self-compassion do not depend on being special and better than other people; instead, they come from caring about ourselves and recognising that we all go through difficult times and it’s only human to get distressed on occasion.

 You will learn how to:

  • Practice self-compassion and kindness in your daily life
  • Decrease stress and anxiety
  • Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism
  • Handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • Support yourself during those times when you suffer, fail, or feel inadequate.
  • Learn how to appreciate yourself

A large and growing body of research, much of it conducted by Dr. Neff, suggests that self-compassion reduces anxiety and depression, enables us to develop healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships, makes us more resilient in the face of challenges, and improves overall wellbeing.

Note regarding coronavirus

As you would expect, we are keeping a close eye on the unfolding situation. At the moment we are planning to run the courses & workshops as usual, but in the event that it becomes necessary or obligatory to limit in-person gatherings, then we will be moving the sessions to our online platform.

We do have a special contingency plan in place for people who have booked and are then individually effected by the coronavirus or asked to self-isolate. These participants are asked to get directly in touch with us at friend@londonmindful.com.
