Testimonials - Spaces for Wellbeing Programme (2023-2024)
Setting Boundaries as An Act of Self-Compassion
Faye McGuinness (Director of Programmes, Education Support)
The session was extremely useful and will support my wellbeing... Great session.
I loved this session and gained some lovely tips- like worrying time and a ritual at the end of the day and focusing on strengths. I felt uncomfortable speaking into the group as I knew it was being recorded and going to be used on the website- this brought a sense of worry about vulnerability - being seen by a wider audience that I had no control over- I think it would have been nice given the size of the group to be given the option of breakout groups which would provide a safer space to share. The facilitation was excellent and the pacing- just a little more reflection time in a smaller group would have suited my temperament... Thank you-a lovely course- as someone trained to teach the 8 week mindful based compassionate living course and the 8 week mindful self-compassion course (Eric Van Brink and Chris Germer courses) it was nice to get a fresh perspective and some different ideas- very enjoyable and practical. Thank you. It is such a gift to be able to access courses like these.
Thank you for a really interesting session. I especially liked the Role Model prompts, something I will share with the rest of the leadership team at my school.
Thank you so much, your presentation is relevant, practical and informative.
