STOP beating yourself up.

EXPERIENCE the life-changing power of self-compassion.

BECOME your own best friend, finally.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a scientifically-backed 9 week online course that helps you to develop the skill of self compassion. MSC helps you respond to difficult moments and challenges in life, with greater kindness, care and compassion. 

This program is for you if…

  • you have a harsh, mean inner critic which bullies or undermines you
  • you suffer with anxiety or depression
  • you are kind and compassionate to others but not to yourself
  • you are tired of getting in your own way with fruitless self-criticism
  • you push away, avoid, suppress or repress your emotions
  • you have a hard time identifying and taking care of your needs (esp. emotional needs)
  • you are ill-at-ease within yourself as a result of persistent self-judgement
  • you feel overly responsible for the happiness and wellbeing of others to the detriment of yourself

After taking this course you’ll know…

  • how to stop beating yourself up and instead cultivate a kinder, more supportive inner voice
  • how to turn toward your inner critic, see its possible intent and motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
  • the difference between yin and yang self-compassion and how to cultivate them
  • a range of formal and informal mindfulness and self-compassion practices to use in daily life
  • how to support yourself amidst the natural struggle and suffering of life
  • how to be with and manage difficult emotions more skilfully
  • how to transform difficult relationships with compassion
  • the theory and research behind mindful self-compassion
  • how to become your own best teacher
