In this four week course we will explore how cultivating self-compassion - a sense of friendliness and tenderness towards ourselves - can enhance our sense of wellbeing and resilience. 

Whilst many of us find it natural to offer compassion towards others, we can struggle to offer the same sense of kindness and tenderness towards ourselves, especially when life brings challenges. Our ‘inner critic’ can dominate our mental state as we judge and criticise ourselves for our perceived failings.

Increasing evidence supports that learning to cultivate a more encouraging, supportive and friendly relationship towards ourselves can help us to: 

  • lower stress levels
  • reduce anxiety and depression
  • feel more resilient to life’s inevitable challenges 
  • feel more connected rather than isolated when life is difficult 


Through this 4 week course participants will: learn about the core components of self-compassion; explore a range of practices to build compassion into our daily living;  have the opportunity to share our experiences of the practices and their impact on our lives.
