About the Course:
There is now a great deal of research to show that if we are self-compassionate we are more emotionally resilient, suffer less from stress, anxiety and depression, maintain healthy habits such as diet and exercise and have more satisfying personal relationships.

Based on the groundbreaking research of Kristin Neff and the clinical expertise of psychotherapist, Christopher Germer, MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable us to respond to difficult moments in our lives with kindness, care and understanding using mindfulness and self compassion.

The course will explore how to:

  • stop being so hard on yourself
  • handle difficult emotions with greater ease
  • motivate yourself with encouragement rather than criticism
  • transform difficult relationships, both old and new
  • become your own best teacher
  • manage caregiver fatigue and more…

This course is led by Claire Garthwaite and Diana Thornton. Both have been teaching and practising mindfulness for a long time and know personally how transformative mindful self-compassion can be. They will guide you in a gentle and light-hearted way.

This 8 week training officially qualifies as one of the pre-requisites for MSC teacher training AND Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy (SCIP) certification.
