Mindful Self-Compassion course

Thursday 1st June, 2023 - 6:30 pm - 9:15 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday 6th July, 2023

Why is it so hard to give ourselves the same compassion we so easily give to our friends?

Most of us would be kind to a close friend who was suffering, yet we can be merciless with ourselves.

Does this sound familiar?

  • you beat yourself up when you fail or make a mistake

  • you’re much harder on yourself than you’d EVER be on a friend

  • you try and motivate yourself with criticism

  • you’re your own worst enemy

  • you don’t know how to cope with difficult emotions like sadness, shame or fear


Mindful Self-Compassion is an evidence-based group course that will help you start developing a kinder relationship with yourself, even in difficult and painful moments of life.

The course was developed by researcher Dr Kristin Neff, and psychologist Dr Chris Germer. You’ll learn about the three core components of self-compassion:

  • Mindfulness: noticing that you’re suffering

  • Self-kindness: responding to your own suffering with care

  • Common humanity: recognising that everyone struggles sometimes

Anyone can learn the skill of mindful self-compassion, whether or not you received enough kindness growing up, and even if you feel a little uncomfortable at the thought of being kind to yourself now.

The course runs over eight consecutive weeks with a bonus half-day retreat.

Included in your ticket:

  • 8 live online classes of 2.75 hours

  • A half-day retreat to deepen your practice

  • Guided recordings to use for daily home practice

  • Follow-up emails to keep you on track between sessions

  • Personalised one-to-one support, as needed

  • Lifelong access to a course Padlet for inspiration
