25% discount on self-compassion courses until 31st December

This time of year can put extra pressure on so many of us as it stirs up feelings of guilt, anxiety, loneliness and dissatisfaction.  Financial worries are often intensified, personal relations are put under strain and those of us suffering bereavement may find Christmas a particularly painful time.  

Although self-compassion can seem like a challenge during the busy festive season, with practice it can help to carve a gentler path for ourselves, that will in turn have a positive effect on those around us.  This might be in the form of a few mindful breaths during anxious moments, envisaging a warm hand on our heart or some kind words to ourselves as we acknowledge any personal suffering without judgement or shame.

Christmas is a time of highs and lows but if we can give ourselves space for self-compassion we will increase our chances of really taking in and appreciating all the good and beauty that will be there too. 

We’d love to help your journey towards self-compassion this holiday by offering a 25% discount on our self-help coursesintroduction to CFT workshop and our training to become a facilitator of your own Compassionate Mind Training courses.
