8x2hrs 8-10 Tudor Road, London, E9 7SN Please note this course is only open for the first 2 sessions, if you wish to join the group after these sessions please do get in touch and we can let you know about the next available course.

The goal of the MSC programme is to support people to be more mindful and self-compassionate in daily life. That means to i) know when you are under stress and suffering (mindfulness skill) and ii) to begin to respond with care and kindness (self-compassion skill). The course supports the development of your natural capacities for self-compassion, self-care and present moment awareness. Skills and strategies for working with challenges are developed during the course via a range of mindfulness and self-compassion practices and exercises, informal practices and group discussion. Our previous clients have found this approach to be helpful in supporting their wellbeing and ability to respond to difficulties. Research tells us that mindful self-compassion can support: • Increased self-compassion, mindfulness, compassion for others, life satisfaction • Decreased depression, avoidance, anxiety, stress •And that all wellbeing gains are maintained over time
