At the heart of what I practice and offer is Mindful Self-compassion (MSC), the eight-week course that I’ve taught eleven times now with a 93% satisfaction rating, and a 96% recommendation from participants. The current fee is £245, and I’ll be asking you to spend about £15 on a Workbook. But I don’t want money to be a problem and I’m happy to discuss, without judgement, whether a lower fee would work for you. MSC brings together three strands…
o A mindful approach to life, really noticing what’s going on, paying attention, learning to be aware of early indicators of stress or difficulty; it’s about being your own observer so instead of being swept along by life you can make better, and kinder, choices.
o An acknowledgement that life for everyone involves a degree of difficulty, suffering, struggle and that this is our common humanity; my struggle is different to yours, but we all have difficulties and are not alone even when it feels like it.
o The introduction of deep compassion for ourselves and for others, in a way that, instead of being judgemental, is kind and open-hearted; this starts with learning to be kind to ourselves in the same way we are naturally kind to our family and friends.
