I found myself praying: “May I love and accept myself just as I am.”
In addition to having a therapy practice, I also offer presentations, workshops (mini retreats, too) and coaching for individuals and groups in companies/organizations in Mindful Self-Compassion, Grief and Loss and many other social-emotional topics. Around Mindful Self-Compassion…I am a trained Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teacher. Below, is a brief description of MSC and what benefits it could offer you/your organization or community. Please contact me for more details on setting up a presentation, workshop or coaching, including pricing.
What is Mindful Self-Compassion?
MSC (developed by Kristen Neff and Christopher Germer) combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to powerfully help people build emotional resilience as they navigate the inevitable challenges of life. MSC is an empirically supported, skill-based practice that can be learned by anyone and provides tools for people to use to both comfort and soothe themselves when they are having difficult thoughts and emotions. It has been found that those who are greater in self-compassion have less anxiety and depression, enhanced emotional well-being, healthier health habits and better relationships with others. Being both mindful and compassionate leads to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
What you’ll learn in MSC
- how to stop being so hard on yourself
- how to handle difficult emotions with greater ease
- how to motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
- how to transform difficult relationships, both old and new
- mindfulness and self-compassion practices for home and everyday life
- the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
- how to become your own best teacher
More on Benefits of Mindful Self-Compassion
On top of the benefits aforementioned that MSC offers individuals, it has been found that when groups of people learn and practice MSC together, it increases the feelings of compassion in the group and leads to greater productivity together, because relationships are kinder, and overall well-being of the collective. Workplaces that have compassion and self-care as a priority have less absenteeism, greater performance and happier workers.
