The biggest thing I’ve gained on this journey I’m currently battling is getting closer to the ones who mean the most. Even though we never had that close sibling relationship that most have, I’m so grateful that we were now able to grow closer and be here for each other. Thank you for being my #1 supporter 💙 @akel.issa #IssaSiblingGoal 👫

•This is painfully good • @holisticallygrace Why am I not healing?⠀ .⠀ Before I began looking at health from a holistic framework I believed that somehow we were machines made of little parts. When these parts broke down or were in need of repair, we would simply take that piece out, work on it, put it back together and ta-dah! (Spoiler alert-much of Western medicine functions from this place).⠀ .⠀ The reality is so much more complex than I could have imagined (especially when we consider childhood trauma and adversity). The mind and body are inseparable. What affects the body will affect the mind and what affects the mind will affect the body. In that sense, our healing needs to focus on both of these components-simultaneously. Additionally, we need to look at our context, environment, interactions and the role they play.⠀ .⠀ If ever we feel stuck in our process we can ask ourselves: what part of this system am I ignoring? How is my environment playing a role in this stuck-ness? How am I downplaying the impact or suppressing emotions/stress? How am I shaming my coping skills and the ways I came to survive?⠀ .⠀ Do you feel stuck in your healing journey? What component could you be ignoring?⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #communication #communicationskills #communicate #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthwarrior #therapist #bekindtoyourmind #bekindtoyourself #selfcompassion #selfkindness #therapyiscool #copingskills #selfhelp #nourishyourself #nourishyourmind #lookwithin #emotionalintelligence #feelyourfeelings #selfhealing #honoryourself #healingmyself #perfectionist #emotionalwellbeing #youareenough #takecareofyou

At first, setting good boundaries involves a lot of trust. Trust that we’re not being selfish, despite the storylines in our head. Trust that our guilty feelings aren’t telling the truth. And trust that our boundaries will actually bring about meaningful change, instead of yet more conflict. Over time, however, our trust deepens into confidence. Confidence in the beneficial nature of our boundaries. We come to see that boundaries not only benefit ourselves, but they can strengthen the entire network of our relations. Ultimately, we discover an unshakable confidence in the goodness of our own good boundaries.

My motto is....be kind always. I want to add that we should start with being kind to ourselves. Believe me sis, I know how hard this can be sometimes. When I catch my teenage daughter speaking unkindly of herself I remind her that if she wouldn't speak those words over her friends then she shouldn't speak them over herself either! Sometimes I need to be reminded of this also, we all do, so here's your reminder to always be kind to others but save some of that kindness for yourself too. People will come and go in life but the person in the mirror will be there forever. So be good to yourself 💜

This is who I am right now. This is how I am right now. And that is ok. And I love myself. • • This has been helpful to me today. It is helping with self acceptance. Saying it to myself and accepting all of me. • • A couple of things this week have felt very big to me, mainly because of what they have brought up in me. Trauma has a way of jumping into the present moment when a current event triggers a similar set of feelings. I will share more fully when I have a bit more time. • • One of the most important things for me (and I believe for all humans) is to accept myself and love myself especially when moving through a process. And even when I think this is old stuff, what is going on? With perfection it can be hard to accept the messy process. Saying this to myself helps. • • Motherhood has brought up a lot of old stuff in new ways showing me new opportunities for growth. To care for myself I went swimming before work yesterday. Physical exercise completed the stress response for me and I felt much calmer, in my adult and clear about needing to take some action. How do you support yourself when you have an old reaction? Or a trauma reaction? How do you help yourself get grounded? #groundingtechniques #groundingmyself #completethestresscycle #childhoodtrauma #childhoodtraumaawareness #psychotherapy #psychotherapymum #adultchildrenofalcoholics #adultchildren #adultchild #selflove #selfkindness #selfacceptance #dothework

How are you practicing being kind to yourself today? . Over the holidays I gave a copy of my book to someone in our family. . This morning she sent me a text to say how much she appreciates it and is finding it helpful. . She told me she has had a lot of challenges throughout her life and the simple practices in the book and focus on making them part of her daily routine feel so right to her. . “Your book is giving me such a great refresh and I’m creating my Daily Anchors now,” she told me. . It means so much to me to be able to help even in a small way. But reading her words also refreshed my own commitment to my Daily Anchors - regular daily practices of emotional health skills I talk about in the book, from gratitude to self-kindness. . Happiness, self-care, self-kindness, gratitude... these are skills and the more we practice the better we become at them. . How are you practicing your self-kindness today? What is one small thing you can do to help yourself feel a bit more fueled and supported?

SEA SOUL ADVENT: DAY 6 Today’s breath of cleansing sea air & reminder to practice self compassion. Today’sadditions to the Sea Soul wreath are may you be CLEAR, and may you DECIDE. Does one sea quality call to you more than the other today? May you be CLEAR Turbulence muddies the sea: displaced, the swirling silt conceals the full ecosystem in which you live. Clear seas re-illuminate all that has been hidden, revealing the truth about where you are now, and making space for what lies ahead. May you see things as they are. May you embrace transparency. May you perceive the wider context. May your clarity open bright horizons, limitless and free. May you DECIDE Even as you choose to go boldly into the sea, you retain an awareness of the water all around you. Alive to what you most want to feel and receive, you are mindful of your deepest intentions, alert to changes, poised to take the next decisive action. May your instincts be your compass. May you navigate with purpose, even as conditions change. May you know your soul longing, and chart a path towards it, one brave decision at a time. CLARITY MEETS DECISIVENESS - How can clarity help you to decide? In December’s fug of emotional exhaustion, old fears can rise up, tensions increase, we’re triggered by family patterns, emotions are heightened. It’s hard to remember what we want and to see our reality amongst everyone else’s. Can you step away from the emotional triggers and pressures, and see the situation more clearly? What do you want to find beyond the turbulence? Imagining a clearer horizon ahead, what decision could you make now that will move you towards that? - How can deciding help you to become clear? When we feel unclear, it’s hard to progress. Decisions melt stuckness. Making one small decision, something manageable and measurable, (what to drink, say no to, ask for, change...) allows us to become clearer about what we want and need. What small decision could you make right now that might help you progress? What could you decide to focus on today? Can you decide to trust your instincts to lead you towards greater clarity and your soul’s deepest longing? #seasouladvent

Adopting a growth mindset can help us to achieve our dreams. Here’s how.... Praise the effort you make regardless of the outcome. Embrace mistakes and failure as part of the learning and growing process. Realise that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Be your own biggest supporter. Keep practicing and you will get there.❤️ Compassionate Habits. #compassioncoach #selfcompassion #compassion #selfconfidence #selfkindness #bekindtoyourself #learningtolovemyself #youareenough #selflovecoach #selfcare #compassionateliving #mindfulselfcompassion #survivingtothriving #wellness #selfcompassionquotes #compassionquotes #therapistsofinsagram #therapyiscool #positivepsychology #compassionatehabits #selfhelptips #mindfulness #selflove #mentalhealth #anxiety #mindset #personaldevelopment #londontherapist

“IF”is an supporting argument for your limitations. Les Brown says “if you fight for your limitations then get the pleasure of keeping them”. Challenge your “ifs” and “buts” this morning. Pull them out of your vocabulary. Don’t allow your perceived limitations to run through your mind unchecked. Here is one affirmation that I say often ”limitations are lies, therefore, I no longer accept them in my life”. Your better life starts the moment you upgrade your thinking. #upgradeu #ymoore #nathanieltmoore

Hi 👋🏼 I'm Catherine, former therapist and now self-compassion mentor, mindfulness teacher and founder of @selfcompassioncommunity . Since 2006, emotional wellbeing and mental health have been at the centre of my life. I discovered self-compassion and mindfulness whilst in enormous physical and emotional pain. I was in a very dark place following a ‘hip replacement gone wrong’ which left me fighting for my life both physically and mentally. And I don't say that lightly. Cultivating self-compassion helped me find a way through. . I was told after my injury that I might not walk properly again, that I might not bear children. I was devastated by the negativity of my prognosis but I came to change my mind, and believe in my ability to help myself. I began to relate to myself in a new way and grew to care about and love who I was, despite how ravaged I'd become, despite the shattering u-turn my life had taken. As my mental health improved, so did my emotional health and so did my physicality. Learning to walk normally again certainly took its toll, but gave me an appreciation and gratitude for myself that I believe I would never have otherwise found. And I have since had two amazing children. I have my struggle days, like we all do, yet I try to I remain mindful of just what it took for me to begin to really live in the world again, and what it took for me to bring my children into the world. I am enormously grateful. . The Self-Compassion Community is two-fold, and aligns with my shift out of the therapy room and into something new. My aim in this space is to share the benefits and power of self-compassion through info, reflections and resources. I’m also creating a member community outside of Instagram where I will actively teach and guide, taking the community there on a deeper and more transformative journey. . Happy you’re here! . With warmth, Catherine❤️ . . . . . . . . . 💫
