Compassionate Practice

View descriptionShare

In this week's episode we chat about compassionate practice. We have both been super keen to do an episode on compassion for a while now, given compassion is a core tenant of our practice. In this ep we went through some of the core features of compassion, how this can be used therapeutically, and developing self-compassion. We loved putting this episode together for you!


We cover:

  • What is compassion and what are the benefits of compassionate practice?
  • What does it mean to be in an active state of compassion.
  • How compassion fits into the ‘haunted house’ of our brain.
  • Working with the inner critic.
  • Compassionate practice and neurodivergence.
  • Strategies for compassionate practice and for activating a state of ‘rest’ in our nervous system.
