How we can help

At Creating Compassion we are dedicated to helping everyone to develop deeper levels of compassion for themselves and others, in their daily life and work. By developing a compassionate approach, we can all learn to find care, connection and calm in our challenging times. The evidence-based programmes and support available from Creating Compassion are informed by the most recent research in the field of psychological development and all start from the premise of developing self-compassion. Self-compassion is an entirely trainable skill available to us all, at any time and in any place. The practice of self-compassion not only allows us to care for ourselves more fully, but also empowers us to protect ourselves from the inevitable difficulties we will all experience at times in our lives and our work.

Here at Creating Compassion, we wish you only well on your self-compassion journey and hope that you have all that you need to be safe, healthy and happy. Through our work, we wish to encourage and empower you to be a force for compassion in your family, your workplace and your community. It is our greatest hope to see the world become a kinder and more compassionate place.

What is Self-Compassion?

Self-compassion consists of three core components


Recognising what we are thinking and feeling in the present moment without judgement rather than overreacting

Self Kindness

Being supportive and understanding towards ourselves when we’re having a hard time, rather than being harshly self-critical

Common Humanity

Remembering that everyone makes mistakes and experiences difficulties at times. We are not alone!

Self-compassion is a tool we can use to authentically and sustainably develop our psychological resilience and improve our health and wellbeing.
