I recently attended a fascinating online seminar that talked about the healing power of compassion – compassion for ourselves and compassion for others. Researcher Chris Germer described compassion as a fundamental resource for alleviating suffering, and explained how through care and connection, it helps to regulate our emotional responses.

This is something I can relate to, both in myself, and in my clients. One simple way to bring compassion in, when facing the challenges of our everyday life is simply to ask “what would I say to a dear friend in this situation?” or “what do I need to best nurture and support myself in this moment?”
