Happy New Year!

Resilience and Self-compassion. I really enjoyed listening to Woman’s Hour this morning! What a great way to start the year!

The guests today were four women with very different life stories. Together they explore how to be more resilient or, at the very least, cope more easily with the challenges life brings.  Kristin Neff talks about developing the skill of self-compassion, along with other guests; one who has a terminal cancer diagnosis and others who have experiences of the prison system. What wonderful human beings.  Nequela Whittaker was once a gang leader and at 17 she was imprisoned for four years. In this clip below she talks about resilience and how you can use it to get you through your challenging times.


Therapy can be a great way to develop more resilience and learn how to be self-compassionate. You are welcome to contact me to find out more.
