Life and work are increasingly stressful and challenging for us all. Research shows that self-compassion is a protective factor in a wide range of wellbeing indicators, including psychological health. Self-compassion training enables us to increase our emotional resilience and self-care.

We are delighted to offer a unique online self-guided programme that will provide you with a full understanding of the theory and practice of self-compassion at work. This innovative, user-friendly programme, delivered across four modules, is based on the latest academic literature, data and best practice in mindful self-compassion. It has been rigorously tested with a large group of working professionals, and the findings of this research study showed significant improvements for participants in psychological wellbeing, stress and burnout, as well as self-compassion. This programme provides you with all the tools and techniques required to enact self-compassion in your day-to-day working life.

The Self-Compassion at Work Programme provides a complete introduction to the science behind self-compassion and covers the three core components (Self-Kindness, Common Humanity and Mindfulness) in an easily understood and practical way. This understanding will promote your psychological wellbeing and resilience in your immediate environment, both at work and at home. Delivered via a technologically advanced mechanism, each module consists of a training webinar that allows you access at any time to suit you using your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Also included with the programme materials you will receive are four short key tasks to embed your learning, a reflective daily diary for use during the programme, an action plan to chart your progress and podcasts to enable you to listen to all the practice elements on the go.
