How do you speak to yourself?

In this newsletter…
–       Self-compassion
–       A new coaching programme for women in tech

How do you speak to yourself? Are you supportive, kind, encouraging? Or is your inner dialog a lot more critical? 

Often the way we talk to ourselves is harsh, critical, unkind… and the things we say to ourselves we would never say to a friend.

So what if we could be kinder to ourselves? What if we practiced self-compassion instead? What impact could that have?

Dr. Kristin Neff says…

“Instead of mercilessly judging and criticizing yourself for various inadequacies or shortcomings, self-compassion means you are kind and understanding when confronted with personal failings – after all, who ever said you were supposed to be perfect?”

And as this HBR article shares

“Self-compassion yields a number of benefits, including lower levels of anxiety and depression. Self-compassionate people recognize when they are suffering and are kind to themselves at these times, which reduces their anxiety and related depression.”

You can read more about self compassion and Dr Kristin Neff’s work here and here’s a link to the HBR article.

We explore the way we talk to ourselves and tools and ideas to be more self-compassionate in both our workshops and one to ones so get in touch if you’d like to find out more we offer a free 15 minute chat if you’re interested in some one to one coaching and we’d love to have a Zoom conversation if you’re looking for some workshops to support the women in your organisation, women’s network or group of individual women. Just drop us an email here and we’ll be in touch.

Working with us testimonial:

“It was a fabulous opportunity to really concentrate on myself and assess where I am in my life, both professionally and personally and how I can develop myself, challenge myself, build confidence and resilience and celebrate my achievements. I feel I always put myself down and put too much pressure and overwhelming expectations on myself. It has taught me to appreciate myself and value my contribution. It has given me a valuable foundation to build upon my confidence and assertiveness. Thank you very much.”


If you’re not working in tech but you’d like to explore a programme for your industry or organisation or network then get in touch as we always love to chat through ideas.

All the best and we’ll see you soon.
