  Course Details

 Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training is designed to help you learn and develop the skill of self-compassion. MSC teaches core principles and practices which enable participants to respond to difficult experiences in their lives with kindness, care and understanding. Three key components of self-compassion are: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Together they comprise a state of warm-hearted, connected presence.

Self-compassion provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to face our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others and be more authentically ourselves.

   Benefits of developing Mindful Self-Compassion include:

Increase in emotional wellbeing

Decrease in anxiety depression and stress

Handle difficult emotions with greater ease

Motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism

Help to manage caregiver fatigue

Transform challenging relationships, old and new

Practice the art of savoring and self-appreciation


Teacher Details

I have practiced meditation and mindfulness since 2003 and trained to became a Mindfulness Teacher in 2009. Since 2012 I have had the good fortune to be trained by the founders of MSC: Kristin Neff, Ph.D and Christopher Germer, Ph.D., alongside the team at University San Diego Center for Mindful Self-Compassion. I am qualified to teach Mindful-Self-Compassion Training and I have a Doctorate in Cultivating Mindful Self-compassion. I am delighted to offer courses and workshops in Essex, East Anglia and beyond. 


To support past and present MSC students, MSC Practice Workshops will be held during the year on Mondays from 7 to 9pm. Cost is £20.
