Self Compassion: 1/2 day workshop

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/YasxfG4r)


Is it time to tame your inner critic? In this practical, half-day workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion, helping us to live a life motivated by kindness rather than criticism.

In an individualistic world, many of us live with a harsh and critical self-attitude that we are not good enough: we should "do better" "be smarter" "achieve more" or "not mess up". We can be compassionate and kind to friends and family, even strangers, but are less familiar and comfortable with being compassionate to ourselves. A lack of self-compassion can take its toll on our physical and mental wellbeing and performance at work, home and in relationships.

In this practical workshop we will learn the science and practice of self-compassion in an informative, interactive, practical and playful way. We will learn:

  • Why we develop self-critical thoughts

  • How self-compassion can act as an antidote

  • How to reconnect with our values

  • To appreciate our common humanity

  • To be motivated by kindness and joy

We will leave with the knowledge and skills to be more self compassionate and reap the wellbeing benefits of motivating ourselves through kindness rather than criticism. 

This session is facilitated by Dr Jo Mitchell, Clinical Psychologist and Co-Founder of The Mind Room.

03 July 2019 • Self Compassion: 1/2 day workshop

I brought my mum with me to this workshop and we both found it enlightening. I've been practising self-care with my psychologists, but it was great to learn practical strategies and how self-criticism can pollute the body and mind. I would definitely recommend this workshop. We both loved Jo who was delivering the workshop, her sense of humour and kind, open approach made it very engaging.

I found the information and strategies were really useful. Would definitely recommend!


01 July 2018 • Self Compassion: 1/2 day workshop

This was a truly worthwhile day. It provided a thorough understanding of the concepts that comprise self-compassion as well as practices to be used on an ongoing basis. The small group worked well and Danica, the facilitator, was knowledgable, kind and very helpful. Personally, I loved how interactive it was and that there was almost no reading (we can do that on our own).
