Cultivating Courage and Self-Compassion Workshop

“You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.” ~ Brené Brown

Is your inner critic getting the better of you?

Wish you had more courage (and less fear) to make a change?

Think you need to "try harder" or "eliminate fear" to boost your courage and achieve better results?


Great - you're in the right place!

Cultivating Courage and Self-Compassion Workshop...

This experiential workshop has been designed for women who are ready to make a change in their career or life and are ready to start to transform any fear that is preventing you from making the change. The Cultivating Courage and Self-Compassion workshop is structured around a process of self-knowledge, self-care and self-trust, so at the end of the day, you will have an action plan for your change and feel ready to take your first steps.

Throughout the workshop, there will be a variety of individual, pair and group activities. However, if you prefer you can also do the activities individually (yes, I am an introvert as well!). In these activities, you will be invited to -

  • Reconnect with your vision of life, values and the change you want to make
  • Increase acceptance and compassion with your self rather than harsh self-criticism
  • Discover where you are in relation to your whole life (not just your career)
  • Reflect on when you have been most engaged and connected in your life and career (yes there is a reason for this)
  • Discover 3 quick ways to bring you back to your courage when start to doubt yourself
  • Experience 2 x simple self-compassion and mindfulness practices you can use now to create inner calm within your day
  • Develop your action plan for courage and get clarity on the next 3 simple steps to take.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
