Compassion-focused therapy – Self Reflection
Sharon recently attended a self-practice self-reflection workshop presented by Tobyn Bell. Compassion-focused therapy and techniques can be particularly helpful for people who experience high levels of self criticism and shame and who struggle to connect with feelings of inner warmth and safety.
Sharon found the workshop offered an excellent opportunity to practice compassion-focused therapy techniques on herself and to reflect on the experience both personally and with colleagues. Self-practice and reflection can be a meaningful way of learning and consolidating therapeutic techniques, and also offers an opportunity to increase our empathy with others including our clients.
