Ask yourself: when life gets hard how do you manage?

Are you able to show kindness to yourself and treat yourself as you would a good friend? Or do you find that there is a critical voice in your mind that nags away at you and tells you over, and over again that you are just not good enough? Most of us have some version of this harsh inner critic which pretends that it is there to help but in fact, often leaves us feeling down and insecure. Does this sound familiar? If your answer is ‘yes’, then this one day workshop could be just what you are looking for.

We will unpack the reasons why we tend to be hard on ourselves and explore new, kinder and more effective ways in which we can manage our worries and concerns. Through learning a whole range of simple exercises we can start to put together our own self-compassion kit and apply it whenever the need arises.
