Self-Compassion at Work – Managing Stress and Preventing Burnout




Our work environment is challenging and ever-changing – especially since COVID.  More and more of us are being asked to do more and yet our window of tolerance is reduced.

Burgeoning research shows that self-compassion (think: inner compassion) is strongly associated with emotional well-being, coping with life’s challenges, lower levels of stress and anxiety, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying, compassionate relationships. Self-compassion is a source of self-worth that’s independent of social approval, which enables us to bounce back from difficulty and pursue our goals with energy and enthusiasm. And it’s becoming increasingly evident that compassion is good for workplace productivity and satisfaction.

We offer in person as well as live online training on Mindful Self-Compassion for Managing Stress and Burnout.

These highly interactive workshops bring mindfulness and self-compassion skills to your staff.

We can customize a workshop to meet your needs whether it is a 45 minute introductory lunch and learn, a 1/2 day or full day session where participants will be introduced to tool and techniques that will help:

Promote health and well-being
Reduce workplace absenteeism and stress
Improve focus, concentration & job satisfaction
Improve emotional intelligence

We have presented workshops with staff from Department of Fisheries and Oceans, School Districts, First Nations Health Directors, CVI Multicultural Society and Nanaimo Division of Family Practice and we really love the opportunity to connect.  Here is what some of our past participants have said:

  • Valuable. i will use some of their techniques
  • I really enjoyed this presentation and have been doing some of the practices
    we learned this week already and they have really helped me in navigating emotions
  • I found the techniques helpful – it was nice to be presented with real life tools
  • Liked the incorporation of the brief meditations;
    started very strong – (tolerance graph/coping pie chart) and I really liked the structured components of self compassion and exercise to work thru the steps
  • I appreciated the calmness of their online presence. It didn’t feel ‘virtual’.
