Helping you welcome compassion in ...

1:1 Self-Compassion and Mindfulness sessions, Group Courses, and Community

Welcome ...

 

I'm Catherine Kell, a trauma-sensitive Self-Compassion and Mindfulness Teacher, Compassion Cultivation Mentor, and Founder of The Self-Compassion Community.

I help people cultivate a compassionate, kind and supportive relationship with themselves, enhancing their emotional resources and coping skills, increasing their resilience and growing their self-acceptance, self-forgiveness, and self-worth, even when (especially when!) failures and setbacks occur.

It's like coming home ... to yourself.

I hope I can help you on your journey.

The healing power of self-compassion ...

The relationship we have with ourselves is the only one we have that is guaranteed to be lifelong, and it’s one so many of us struggle to value, trust and learn to nurture.

Yet doing so builds our resilience, boosts our life-satisfaction and bolsters our coping skills, and in turn, enables us to be more supportive and caring of others. Amongst the busyness of demanding modern life, learning to tune into our own needs and compassionately support ourselves with kindness and mindful presence promotes mental and emotional wellbeing. Self-compassion also helps us learn to stand in our power, to speak up for ourselves and protect ourselves.

Enabling ourselves with tools and practices that nourish, connect and heal develops our ability to notice how we are really feeling and to know what we need to support ourselves.

I teach and mentor people to develop mindfulness and self-compassion practices, increasing their resilience to deal with challenges and the ups and downs of life. My focus is on resource-building and mentoring people to cultivate new skills and practices which aid and support. It is my privilege to mentor and guide people along what is a therapeutic and life-changing journey.

Feeling with the heart really is our most powerful connector. Not just to others, but to ourselves too.

When we are depleted, beating ourselves up, feeling inadequate, and being crushed by our own harsh self-criticism, self-compassion offers us a way to actively soothe ourselves.

When we are caught up in the discomfort of people-pleasing, exhausted by caregiving or habitually putting ourselves last (and sometimes resenting it), self-compassion offers us a way to attend to our needs with awareness.

When we need to speak up, take action to protect ourselves or motivate ourselves, self-compassion offers us a way to stand in our truth.

About me

Since 2006, emotional wellbeing and mental health have been at the centre of my life. I came to these approaches whilst in enormous physical and emotional pain and from a very dark place following a ‘hip replacement gone wrong’ which left me fighting for my life both physically and mentally. Cultivating self-compassion helped me find a way through ...
